Thom Sevalrud for The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association

Thom Sevalrud had the pleasure of illustrating yet another cover for The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association this past month. Art director Lotte Gronneberg chose the prefect topic for Thom's style.  

Thom's piece depicts how technology will change the role of patient care in the years to come. As Thom often does, he gives us the sense of the enormity of these decisions and how very personal they can be.Thom Sevalrud, Patient Technology

Eric Chow for Remodeling Magazine

With ever-changing rules and regulations, remodeling you home or office is no picnic. Remodeling Magazine tackled this topic in the feature article "Watch Your Step" for their March 2015 issue.  

The design team at Hanley Wood knew a conceptual solution would be best to illustrate the fine line contractors walk between safety and regulations. Illustrator Eric Chow worked closely with them to come up with this clever tightrope analogy.

Monika Melnychuk for Wine & Spirits Magazine

The Wine & Spirits 26th Annual Restaurant Poll is out this month with their famed list of the top 50 wines Americans love most. This year's cover showcases the elite bunch of sommeliers that help make these decisions.  The sophisticated playfulness of Monika Melnychuk's illustration style couldn't have been a better choice to capture the group's likeness.  

Armed with all the pics art director Michael Rush could get his hands on, Monika meticulously drew each somm's portrait, happily revealing a little (or a lot) of each personality and style.

I just love the details like the wind blowing the curtain and the steam rising on the coffee. They seem to bring the story to life.

Ian Phillips: The Wiggle in Your Walk Must Go

Chiropractor, Dr. Richard Robinson, approached i2i art to have Ian Phillips illustrate a cover for his new book addressing a phenomenon that he'd observed and treated for years.  Apparently the vast majority of us have a little wiggle when we walk that actually translates into back problems over time.  In his helpful guide he offers suggestions to deal with the wiggle and thus the back.  The question that begs asking is, how many of us are willing to let go of our little swagger? Ian ended up wearing both his designer and illustrator hats as he approached this assignment.  The striking illustration that emerged from his concept and evocative type treatment work beautifully to communicate what the good doctor had in mind.  Don't you just love the illustrative direction this project took Ian in?  There's a bit more realism and retro and together it's fabulous!

Ian writes in his blog:  "This was a fun project, I think I probably drew about fifty pairs of shoes before I got the right look for this! Note the continued stripe pattern in the fabric folds at the knee, the pockets, and repeated on the bottom of the shoe and on her t-shirt. Adds a little playfulness."

  Alanna Cavanagh's trademark cropped figures are popping up everywhere!  Recently Alanna illustrated the cover of Awake and Dreaming.  The cover image sends out a gentle yet provocative invitation to join Theo (the main character) on her journey.  This is one of 4 new editions to become part of Penquin Canada's Puffin Classics Series, where renowned Canadian illustrators breath new life into classic titles.  Art director Lisa Jager did a great job unifying all the covers which you can see on the CBC Books website, where a new edition is being rolled out each day.  Alanna's cover debuted earlier this week.  You can read more about the interview with her here.
