A Willingness to Act

Ricardo Bessa A Willingness to Act

A Willingness to Act, illustrated by Ricardo Bessa.

"Dyne Shaizar couldn't believer his eyes..." A fantastical illustrative narrative following Dyne's adventures as he meets a warrior called Haddon and a rather unpleasant beast. Combining both hand drawn and digital elements, these illustrations play on the magic of the story.

Houses of Parliament Initiative

John Devolle Houses of Parliament Initiative

Last year John was invited to participate in the new initiative of illustrating the functions of the Houses of Parliament, through his digital infographics and diagrammatical images. The whole set have been well received and we're excited to share these with you!

"I was very pleased to be commissioned by the Houses of Parliament to work on a series of illustrations for various publications with the aim of clarifying some of the ways in which parliament work for its constituents and how it functions. This involved coming up with concepts to depict complex ideas and creating a style and colour palette that worked with this. Another big part of the project was finding new ways to depict the building itself. Prior to this, their publications had tended to be dark imagery of the interior and exterior. The challenge was to simplify such a complex building, as the Palace of Westminster, in order to make the imagery more engaging and friendly. In the end I was very happy with the result and am currently working with the Houses of Parliament on some new projects.” John Devolle / Clear As Mud.
