Sunday is Mother’s Day, so we wish all the mothers out there a wonderful and restful day. In honor of Mother’s day we would like to share several of our illustrators’ lovely images showing a mother’s devotion and why we would be nowhere without them!
Talented artist, Jim Salvati has partnered with Art Insights to create a series of portrait images for “The Image Projects” beginning with “The Musician’s Image”. His work is created with such attention to composition and detail leading to a visually stunning image…always. Shown are recent paintings of Jimi Hendrix and Morrissey with more to come.

Martin Haake illustrates American politics and the Presidential candidates. With election day looming, Martin skillfully captures the combative tone of this election season with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump “duking it out” in the ring. Who will win??
Martin Haake took a little trip around the globe recently, in pictures anyway. He had the wonderful opportunity to illustrate thirty maps of the world’s best-loved cities, like Toronto, Mumbai and New York. That’s a whole lot of exploration!
Georgia Cherry researched and wrote the children’s book City Atlas and Martin added the visuals. Each map is beautifully detailed, engaging and colorful. He captured the local flavor and customs of each city including famous landmarks and famous people.
Also included on each page is a search-and-find game that engages young readers. Children are lead on a thrilling adventure as they scour each city in search of exciting one-of-a-kind treasure. It’s sure to be a hit among kids everywhere!
City Atlas is published by Wide Eyed Editions and available for purchase on Amazon in the UK this week. It will be available in other markets in the coming months and in the U.S. in 2016. Martin Haake is represented by Lindgren & Smith. Be sure to check out Martin’s portfolios at Folioplanet and Workbook.
Memorial Day is a holiday celebrated each year in May. Originally declared a holiday to remember the Union and Confederate soldiers who died fighting in the American Civil War, Memorial Day was then extended to include all enlisted military personnel who died in the line of duty. So we want to take some time to honor and remember this Monday, and all throughout the year, the tremendous price that was paid by all those who died defending our freedoms and the sacrifice paid by their families.
