Happy Nowruz from Anson Liaw!

Happy Nowruz!

Norooz, Anson Liaw

Anson uses his densely layered imagery and energetic lines to celebrate the beginning of the Persian New Year, a predominantly secular holiday that is enjoyed by people of many faiths. Nowruz has been celebrated for over 3000 years in Central Asia, Western Asia, the Caucasus, Black Sea Basin, and the Balkans.

Falling on the first day of Spring, Nowruz also marks the New Year in the Iranian solar calendar.

Anson’s style – and his multiple variations on this new image – seem fitting for this holiday that is filled with symbolism and shared among various cultures.

Which one is your favorite?

We just love the exciting mélange of colors, patterns, and textures. There is so much action in this piece that we manage to find a new element to admire each time we revisit it.

Congratulations, Josee! This award winner is truly worthy of the acclaim.

Carlo Stanga’s Wall Street Journal Debut

For our artists that work in the editorial realm, there are a few publications that are perpetually on our “dream client” list. We were so excited when the Wall Street Journal asked Carlo Stanga to create an energetic lead image for their piece “The World According to Google” – and how perfect that it focused on Berlin, the city that Carlo calls home:

Noone captures the excitement and sophistication of the big city quite like Carlo does. Congratulations on this nice milestone!

Gaby D’Alessandro – Fear of Flying

Tackling an interesting concept – a travel writer that copes with a fear of flying – Gaby’s subtle visual solution captures the author’s phobia beautifully.

Take a look at the article here, and congratulations, Gaby!

“I am London” – New Book from Carlo Stanga

Using his trademark lines and attention to detail, Carlo Stanga breathes life into his images and delivers the energy of the city. How fitting that he was chosen to illustrate the recent title “I am London” – a celebration of the city’s iconic architecture and distinctive character.

Packed with nuance, humor, and sophistication, “I am London” is guaranteed to suck the viewer in – we like to think of it as a “Where’s Waldo” for buildings.

You can pick up your own copy here, and congratulations, Carlo!
