Matt Lee

Since graduating from the University of Plymouth 4 years ago, I have been living and working in London as a freelance illustrator. For the last two years I have been illustrating the Financial Times Revolver art & culture column. Other clients include The Guardian, Orange, The Independent, Don?t Panic Media, HSBC, Shots Magazine, The Radio Times, Caspian Publishing, Time Out and The Association Of Illustrators.
My personal work Is concerned with our daily trials, portraying everyday realities through the use of metaphors and surrealism. I like humour that is tinged with a sadness. For me it is important that both are shown. My inspirations are Picasso paintings, Doctor Seuss books and Beach Boys records.
I am currently working on a script for an animation as well as a series of 50 drawings titled Elements. For This molskine project I have chosen a selection of 38 drawings from a series of 100, titled Lord, stay by me?. These drawings of characters praying were created between the hours of midnight and morning. Drawn on the back of an old role of newspaper, as well as paper from old unwanted books.
For me praying is less about religion and more a search, or a need for strength and primal hope.http://www.matt-lee.com

Jess Wilks

My work is the acknowledgment of a punch line. Like a joke, you either get it or you don't.
My images are assemblages that juxtapose humor and language. By attaching and integrating materials the work creates dense layers of information, which result in a visual translation of the contradictions and hostilities of modern life.
The limited use of text in my images provides a dialog in cultural self definition while tapping into a common language. By manipulating the context of words, the images explore the power of dialect and language and how this affects and helps to define who we are.
The unrefined figures in my paintings are the still laughing survivors of a hostile sensory overloaded society. They are both narrative and autobiographical.

I believe in the endless narrative possibilities of painting, and challenge the viewer to provide their own unique interpretationof each work.

David Miller

www.millergrafika.comTrained at Parsons School of Design in New York and Paris, David Miller's illustrations and paintings reveal a disquieting fantasy world influenced by Eastern European art and design nurtured during extensive journeys to Prague. Fascinated by Bohemian circus life and the Czech tradition of pantomime theater, children's books, and animation, Miller has imagined a very personal world of hybrid characters with contrasting features and fantastic bodies, surrounded by tapered bestiary images that a child might dream of. Visually striking and frightening, the collages, scribbled sketches, and writings present subtle and odd sense of humor.
Among Miller's accomplishments include the illustrations for Milan Kundera's book covers for the European paperback market. His work is frequently seen in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Newsweek, GQ, and Penthouse, and his submissions make their way yearly into Communication Arts illustration annual and American Illustration. In 2002 he was awarded the Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York for their 54th annual competition in the advertising category.
Miller has shown his work in galleries all over the world, most notably in an exhibition in Italy entitled "Contemporary American Illustration". This exhibition brings thirty of America's most cutting-edge illustrators to Rome, Venice, Bolzano, Padua, and Cagliari for a two year period sponsored by the Italian government. In the spring of 2002 he returned to that most influential city of Prague where he was invited to exhibit paintings in the prestigious U prstenu Gallery located in the Old City. This gallery regularly exhibits the Czech Republic's most highly regarded graphic and fine artists.
Notable projects include participating in the creation of Astrobase Go! A design collective in New York's Lower East Side, Astrobase Go! is a multi-disciplined "base" where animated and live action films, print and web design, painting and illustration are created. Miller has also had long running editorial assignments such as a seven year monthly drawing in Penthouse magazine.


Oscar Julve


Oscar Julve (Barcelona, 1972). I finished my Fine Art degree in 1995, and since that year I've been working as an illustrator in several projects. I've been combining children illustration and comic-books, for several editors.
I have collaborated with editorials, design studios, publicity agencies and also tv producers. I also work as an art teacher with students between 12 and 18 years old.

In the sketchbook you will receive (I hope), there is a part of my work about the Spanish Civil War (1936). I'm very interested in this subject and I'm working in a comic book about the firsts days of this war in my city Barcelona.
