Tilly Tag

Well, it's been a bit busy here at Cool Surface; we've just finished a few fun commissions for some international magazines. Keep an eye out for the next issues of Digital Arts and Photoshop Creative for some Cool Surface tutorials, but in case you miss them we will of course be posting the results on here once they're released into the big wide art world.
For now, here's a work in progress which we've been playing around with in our spare time, featuring the adorable "Tilly".

Have fun!

10 Kings and Queens is Out Now!

Last week we received our complimentary copies of the 3rd installment in the "Ten" series of books which we illustrated for Kingfisher/ Macmillan Publishing.

Go to the sidebar and click the book cover to buy "10 Kings and Queens who Changed the World" from Amazon. We think it's the best one yet! ;)

Advanced Photoshop's latest website wallpaper is..."Dark!"

...that is to say "Dark"- the tutorial we did for the magazine over Christmas, not just the absensce of light! Forgive the awful joke, I'm just very tired this morning!

It was a very pleasant surprise to log on and see our art staring us in the face! Looks like it will be there for around a month or so. Thanks to the AP team for choosing our art ot represent the magazine, we're very flattered.

Have fun,

Reg the Cat

Yesterday was the Birthday of a friend of ours, Clive Gifford. Clive is a fantastic author who we had the pleasure of working with on the "Ten" series of books for Kingfisher Publishing. As a birthday surprise, we drew this portrait of his lovely cat, Reg. Reg has his own web pages on Clive's website here.

Have fun,

More Cool Surface artwork on the Beeb!

If you tuned in to "Who Wants to be a Superhero?" on BBC2 last Saturday morning, you will have seen these 4 posters (created by your friendly neighbourhood art duo, Cool Surface!) presented to the kids. We were really pleased to see how thrilled the kids were with their posters, and even more pleased by how much screen time our artwork got! ;)

Have fun,
