Internationally acclaimed artist, Malcolm Farley, is renowned for his visions of color and unique ability to capture the moment ,the action, and the spirit of the event. In his distinctive painting style, Malcolm blends bold strokes of color with the drama of some of the world’s most memorable moments in time.
Malcolm started painting at the age of eight. Particularly fascinated with the energetic drive and aura of athletes, Malcolm Farley, an “all-everything athlete himself ”cut his teeth painting the world’s greatest baseball, tennis, football, and hockey stars.
“I paint what I know best. I know what it feels like to dive into the end zone for the winning touchdown, hit the home run in the bottom of the ninth, and sink the three pointer at the buzzer! I love the thrill of competition and the focus needed to achieve one‘s goals. I would hope that these emotions come through in my paintings.” -Malcolm
The Bose Global MarComm department tapped Jon Rogers’ irreverent “how to” vector illustration style for this series of Facebook headphone etiquette tips.
“Maybe you have a friend whose headphones are too loud. Or a co-worker who doesn’t seem to understand that when you’re wearing headphones you don’t want to be disturbed. That’s why we created these headphone etiquette tips.”
One of the artists we represent, Bonnie Hofkin, is a very multi-faceted artist. She can illustrate in many styles, but we usually need her for her more realistic, “quick-sketch” drawings, that happen to look a lot like the anatomical and technical drawings of Leonardo DaVinci. Recently, the Balvenie, a range of single malts crafted by Malt Master David Stewart, contacted us looking for someone with a style like Bonnie’s. They host an annual craft show that tours around the United States.
Bonnie’s ability to create detailed yet rudimentary drawings intrigued the Balvenie, and they ended up using her original drawings of the pieces of a bicycle and the assembly of a guitar as the backdrop of the festival’s landing page (seen above). The craft festival itself has quite a roster of impressive artisans and unique products, from surfboards and sandals to chairs and suits. We were lucky to have Bonnie on our team for this project! She did an excellent job.
Marcel Laverdet made a person become a work of art in this CGI piece. At first glance, it looks like she is part of the graffiti mural, when really, she has just been painted to match it. A common misconception about art is that it is only meant to be looked at and decoded. Obviously we love to view and appreciate art, but there are many factors that play into it. It can be participatory, as we see here. Laverdet crosses lines by adding this painted, naked, backward-facing (she is viewing the wall, too) woman to an already aesthetically amusing mural. By making her a part of the creation, he combines viewer and product in an interesting and cool fashion.
Working with moodboard designs and scripts from Saatchi NYC, the talented team at Powerhouse Animation created “Professor Iamstein,” a pet food scientist and connoisseur. He is going to host five animated videos on the IAMS YouTube channel and educate the masses on the most common questions pet owners have about the animals they care for and love.
Powerhouse was thrilled to get the opportunity to work with the creative team at premiere ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi NY on their animated campaign for IAMS pet food. The designs and scripts we received from the Saatchi team gave us a great sense of what style they were hoping to achieve with these short videos, and the Powerhouse team enjoyed bringing this vision to life. They did a great job!
