2. Samuel Green

Based in London and with a masters from St Martins, Sam Green is a striking young illustrator with an already formidable client list that includes Nokia, Warner Bros, Vice, Dazed and Confused and even LucasArts to name but a few. We adore his simple penciled style that often evokes a playful human spirit that is captured so well by his free and loose technique. Already a rising star on the design scene, expect to see Sam’s work filling up contemporary galleries on an increasingly regular basis over the next few years.

7. Iain Macarthur

Iain Macarthur about Iain Macarthur:

Born in 1986 in england swindon. I've became a fanatic of art at the age of eight inwhich i was introduced in art through watching alot of cartoon shows and comic books. first ever comic i looked at was the batman series. since then i've been obsessed with drawing odd fantasy drawings and anime characters. when i got older i diverted from anime drawings to realistic figures and faces, always striving to make them more detailed and photorealistic, i always do one or two drawings ever since,i also carry a sketch book around all the time on my travels drawing on the bus or in a coffee shop, i enjoy doing it and helps me improve drawing people more better, which shows how motivated and inspired i am in art.

I’v looked at alot of artist’s and illustrators throughout the years, all with different styles and different medias. my favourite artists that influences me in my work is alphonse mucha, klimt, lucian freud, jenny saville, james jean, david choong lee, sergio toppi and ashley wood. i also gain knowledge and inspiration through cartoons still as well as lighting, peoples face expressions , eyes, different forms of patterns and shapes.

In 2008 i graduated from swindon college in HND illustration and maybe hopfully will progress in studying in BA illustration somtime in the future. I have done a few exhibition last year and this year such as the swindon college exhibition for illustration and graphic design students, D/AD new blood exhibition at earls court london and a solo internet exhibtion on

My work is described as surreal and unique in its own way.Using mostly pencil,watercolours and pigment pens i create portraits of ordinally people but create them in a unusual way by embelishing patterns and watercolour effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect. making there faces from somthing plain to somthing entirly bizzare and wonderful at the same time.

TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks. When you submit an image to be searched, TinEye creates a unique and compact digital signature or 'fingerprint' for it, then compares this fingerprint to every other image in our index to retrieve matches. TinEye does not typically find similar images; it finds exact matches including those that have been cropped, edited or resized.

F-ing brilliant!
