This stunning mural of Academy Award nominated Mexican Actor Yalitza Aparicio, is a campaign collaboration by Loveblood Artist Ely Ely Illustra, Osmani and Bonafont ( @bonafontmx ). Commissioned by Mercarte this huge mural celebrating powerful females figures has been 4 years in the making! Worth every second I say!.
The wonderfully weird vision of Loveblood Artist Stephen Maurice Graham has been commissioned by blink-182 for their Virginia Beach gig & their 20th anniversary tour of Enema of the State! You gotta love it when a band does this kind of thing, it gives the artist a chance to do something a little bit different perhaps, but always pretty cool and I think SMG has done an awesome job.
Big thanks to Mike Krol @SandbagUSA for getting Stephen on board and the band for loving his work. As gig poster go this is a cracker, I hope you agree!
We are so incredibly proud to be able to shout about this now!

Mia Underwood has an incredible number of strings to her creative bow: Author, designer, illustrator. This project for eConsult, who provide an online portal where patients can self-check their symptoms and receive on the spot medical advice 24/7, offered an opportunity to collaborate with animation production company, Sheepfilms to bring her work to life.
Commissioned by webGB Mia was invited to design and illustrate eConsult's online and printed marketing tools. Mia’s illustrations help make eConsult's ‘online triage’ system easier for customers to understand.
“I came up with the idea that the patients are droplets entering the triage system, the droplets go through 3 different directions, each landing in safe hands. The hands then transform into a bird, to symbolise the droplet/patient being delivered to the correct consultant.”
This is a beautiful example of how businesses can create a visual and emotionally resonant connection between the audience on the product. What a brilliant result for really beneficial product.
Loveblood is bursting with enthusiasm to introduce the collaging greatness that is Rosie Carmichael. Rosie started her creative journey making zines with her friend Kali when she was 16, so it is no surprise that this ‘cut and paste‘ DIY punk aesthetic (and armed with the knowledge of its Dadaist origins) would travel with her through art school and inform her style. Inspired by science fiction Rosie’s work explores infinite options of composition, scale and colour, digitally to create engaging and cosmic stories. Welcome to the Loveblood Family Rosie!
Loveblood Artist Goyo Rodriguez has been selected in BICeBé 2019, worldwide poster competition. In the category of "Advertising Posters" Goyo has, not 1… but 2 of his works shortlisted for the prize. Bravo Goyo! We hope you win!
This kind of event links designers and artists across the world with the Latin American identity; "Understanding that the value lies in the difference, not in the uniformity. Academically it is class of events they are an unbeatable opportunity for the young students to know that "the great ones" are it by their effort, innovation and perseverance, nothing that does not have a person "normal".
Here are Goyo’s submissions but follow the links to see the full selection….well worth a look. :)
Loveblood Creative – an Illustration Agency formed with Love, Blood, Sweat and Tears.
For those working in the creative industries, your journey may not have been an easy one. Perhaps firstly battling with your parents who would rather, rightly or wrongly, you choose a more "stable and financially rewarding" career in favour of going to Art School or Music School for example. Then the struggle continues as you try balancing creativity and “making a living”. This is no new struggle and I wish at Art School we were made to take a business course too! The path that has taken me to create Loveblood has had many twists & turns. I was once TV Presenter on live TV, interviewing everyone from Moby to Norm from Cheers! I then went on to run 4 Minute Wonders, a music video production initiative commissioning £5000 music vids for Soma Records, Warp, Skint and many others. It seemed like a natural step to start directing and I started with music videos (I even got one on MTV!) to film. My short film “Caffalic Educashun” was supported by many amazing people, Elvis Costello, The Beta Band and Working Title Films but it also allowed me the opportunity to work with the great cinematographer, Brian Tuffano. On a whim and with a plane ticket gifted to me by a wonderful french lady, I took off to Cannes and ended up at the dinner table of Richard Attenborough. As a stylist, I have kitted Ray Winston out in Civil War uniform for a TV commercial, and as the owner of Fallow Denim indulging a passion for fashion and started importing Japanese denim and creating high end denim products in the UK since 2010.
Lecturing had its own incredible rewards and students at both Duncan Of Jordanstone and Northbrook College(Now The MET) have equally experienced my own special brand of “teaching”…I think they taught me more. These are the twisty, turny hightlights of my career. But it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. I have had my fair share of ‘stormy seas’….but who wants to hear about those!
When the storm hits, it sends you reeling, your compass is malfunctioning, not knowing what way to turn next in your career...and that is how it felt when, on the 2nd of January 2019, I was made redundant from a job I LOVED :(
After firstly thinking, "ok, that's never happened before" and a panic attack in the supermarket, I decided that just because the job was redundant DIDN’T MEAN THAT I WAS! (I think that is a very important distinction for all who are going through this at the moment.)
An opportunity had presented itself to balance the scales of business, creativity and family. What at first was perceived as a crushing blow became a saving grace. With the love and support of my family, Amy Very, Jody Juba @ House Of Juba, Jude Turner Creative and the inimitable Daniel Ball; LOVEBLOOD CREATIVE was born. But lets not forget the Artists.
The wonderful Loveblood Artists (and all Artists) are the people who have inspired me most, they fill the world with a beauty we all enjoy and without which a bleak existence would be our fate! Alleviating that struggle and enabling a more beautiful world is what Loveblood Creative is all about. Loveblood Creative, I, want to connect inspiring creatives with progressive & dynamic clients with honesty and integrity.
The community of illustrators and animators that has grown around me, is born of my passion and extreme approachability (haha), building meaningful positive working relationships, allowing the love and creative blood to flow.
A recent commission for Loveblood Artist; Mia Underwood for the English National Opera, allowed Mia a rare opportunity to bask in the emotional and immersive glory that live art evokes. The commission to illustrate a stained glass window for their stage set scenery, for their opera show 'Jack The Ripper' by the Senior Production Manager of The English Nation Opera was certainly a wonderful and unique opportunity. Jack the Ripper: The Women of Whitechapel is on from 30th March - 12th April 2019.
