With an unique combination of blue and red, the landscapes Lucy has created feel homely with a sprinkle of childhood Christmas magic we’re all looking for.

Lucia Gaggiotti creates beautiful promotional illustrations for Bvlgari’s gifts.

Lucia Gaggiotti was commissioned by Italian brands of excellences, “Bvlgari”. The perfume department asked Lucia to illustrate the promotional gift packages for Christmas 2021 that came with their fragrances.

Inspired by Italian winter holidays and the prestigious ski resorts in northern Italy the image still relates the key icons of the brand. Lucia painted a dreamlike and timeless scenario, like an ancient and magnificent postcard entitled “take a fabulous journey into the winter world of Bvlgari”

“I am so grateful to have collaborated with the lovely Creative Marketing Perfume Specialists, who gave a profound value to my work and helped me to turn the craft handmade illustrations into digital highly skilled techniques like gold foils printing and embossing to the perfect colour finish, everything about them just says “quality”.

Darling Clementine illustrate an illuminated take on the Nutcracker for M & S.

Darling Clementine illustrated an amazing range of M & S’s Christmas snow globe Gin & Rum Liqueur’s, with each bottle containing a small light that beautifully illuminates Darling Clementine’s illustrations as gold and silver flakes swirl in the behind them.

The images across the three bottles tell the story of The Nutcracker, in three different palettes that reflect the ingredients of each liqueur. Ranging from beautiful palaces, swashbuckling rats and hidden ballerina’s, the illustrations are perfect examples of Darling Clementine’s crisp decorative design sensibilities.

Chris illustrates for Royal Mail.

Chris Wormell has worked with Royal Mail many times over the years and the most recent Post and Go series is by far his biggest stamp project. From heraldic beasts, freshwater lakes and river life, ladybirds to hibernating animals and beyond.
Typically Chris, the detail and accuracy is flawless but there is something about these creatures that is special and they each tell their own story.
Looking like they could leap of the page and fly away, these are collectables for all.

“Over the years, many of our stamp projects have featured the excellent work of illustrators who are represented by The Artworks.
“With each of these projects, we have found the process of working with The Artworks team and their associated illustrators to be creative, collaborative and professional. We look forward to each new project with them…”
