Introducing Pablo Hurtado de Mendoza

We are delighted to announce that Debut Art now represents Madrid based illustrator Pablo Hurtado de Mendoza. Pablo has worked as a freelance illustrator since he graduated, developing changes and evolving his style whilst trying to express his own vision of the world through his art. While studying design, Pablo developed an interest in negative space and graphic elements, which ended up shaping his illustration style. His work can be distinguished by the use of visual metaphors and modern graphic language mixed with a more traditional sense of art. Thematically, he explores issues from urban spaces and contemporary life, in both a physical and psychological context.

The Red Dress / Disney Anniversary Posters

The Red Dress were commissioned by Disney Pixar to create celebratory anniversary posters for several of their most-loved films. 'Finding Dory', 'Monsters Inc.' and 'Toy Story' reached their 5th, 20th and 25th anniversaries respectively in 2021, and Disney Pixar requested The Red Dress to create a poster for each following a particular art style. 'Finding Dory' and 'Toy Story' followed a film noir theme, whilst 'Monsters Inc.' was influenced by vintage 'Wish You Were Here' postcards. The resulting artworks were released on social media in conjunction with the production companies' celebrations of these landmarks. They demonstrate The Red Dress' adeptness at executing quintessential and well known eras of art in a contemporary fashion.

BloodBros. / New Hokkaido Packaging

Emile aka. BloodBros. was commissioned via Sally Morrow Creative to create a suite of packaging designs for craft beer brand New Hokkaido. BloodBros. has now worked with New Hokkaido on several new designs, the latest being for their latest release Daruma IPA.

His appreciation of an understanding of the many creatures, characters and symbolic figures from Japanese folklore and fables are rendered in his signature clean and fresh style.

Debut Art / Agents for Change

Début Art is extremely proud to be one of the founding member agencies of Agents for Change. It is widely recognised that there is a problem around representation in the creative fields, which given the reach and consumption of its outputs has harmful effects on society as well as missed opportunities for individual people and businesses. Agents for Change are taking action to demystify the industry and improve pathways into it. Agents for Change's current offerings include free portfolio reviews open exclusively to those belonging to typically under-represented groups, honest and open Q&A events, a series of published interviews with established creatives to share their journeys and inspire others, and a central directory of grants and other organisations that can help. We are currently also working on a school outreach plan, and a set of resources and guides about illustration and the surrounding creative industry to be released later this year. Enormous thanks are due to Grand ...

Introducing Nicky Ackland-Snow

Inspired by stories imagined within found ephemera from the past, Nicky is passionate about creating new meanings from old contexts. Her work has a strong conceptual base and uses typography and metaphor to create layers of visual poetry. The technicolour utopianism of the 1950’s has inspired a feel-good approach to her illustration, projecting hopefulness and fun. Having actively engaged in editorial and publishing projects for the illustration industry over the last 30 years, Nicky has also been inspired by a range of opportunities in the commercial art world. Working in the arenas of festival branding, international product merchandising, illustrated commercial interiors and authorship, Nicky embraces all possible outlets for her work. Nicky has a BA in Graphic Design from Bath School of Art which helped to mould an illustrational approach with a strong base in design principles. She lives, works and lectures in the South West of the UK and continues to scour the flea markets, auc...
