This friday we learnt that our designer Pat is allergic to photos and if you photograph him he comes out in a rash! (we also saw him sneaking past with a cup of tea this afternoon thinking nobody had noticed) We got you!

Jason Juta is a South-African born, free-lance illustrator now living in London, represented by Advocate art-illustration agency.
As a child Jason had a lot of parental support and encouragement to pursue his creative talents, which he is very grateful for. He then went on to study Graphic Design but it didn’t interest him as much as illustration, although he says he did learn a lot from his studies. Through his work Jason feels the drive to create and improve, but also wants the attention and respect of his peers – he says that perhaps a desire for glory isn’t the most noble motivation but he thinks most artists have at least some ego to massage!
Jason produces two styles of freelance illustration. The first is digitally painted fantasy art for the gaming industry (Dungeons and Dragons, Star Wars and Warhammer for example). The second is personal work based on photography, with dark, mythic and gothic themes. For digital paintings Jason uses basic 3D to work out perspective, and for personal work he tries to paint in a traditional way.
Whilst painting Jason listens to art podcasts and fiction audiobooks. Otherwise, he prefers ‘underground’ and unusual music such as metal, indie, ambient, classical, rock of various types and hard electro.
Diego Gisbert is a Fantasy Artist represented by Advocate Art, illustration agency. He has been inspired form the moment he was born, taking his love of drawing from the magic of the 80’s, with all those cartoons, comics and movies. This probably meant he started drawing before he could read and so the passion lives on.
Most of Diego’s personal work is completed in traditional media yet nearly all of his professional work is created digitally, as he loves to work for videogames, miniature companies, card games and many other fantasy/sci-fi projects.
Diego loves learning new things and follows the philosophy ‘ the more you lives the more you learn (and the better your painting gets!)’. He tries to say yes to all new experiences, especially those involving sport adventures and nature. He also loves cats. “Everything is better with a cat on your lap”.
