DAniele pampanelli Daniele is born in Perugia, where he still lives. He is a graphic designer for work and for passion. For fun he is also involved in photography. His project is called Polaroid design; whenever he is in unusual places, usually during the indie concerts he is keen on, he pulls out a small notebook tailor-made for his needs (because he wants it tiny and with yellow pages) on which he draws snapshots of what he sees... sometimes using imagination... since he is short-sighted!
LOTTAROX AGENCY is a professional booking, event and promotion company based in London (UK), Florence (Italy) and Stockholm (Sweden) whose first aim is to introduce the best emergent and unsigned UK artists to the Italian Indie Market by booking the best Club Nights, In-Store shows and Exhibitions of the various countries it works in, soon in Amsterdam as well.

LORDH Lordh is an Amsterdam-based artist and graphic designer. Since 2005 he has been working in Holland with agencies and different clients. His experience takes place from graffiti, lettering, typography as well as modern art from which he draws the feeling for proportion, balance and aesthetic harmony which emerge in his compositions. An important source of inspiration is also astronomy and its imagery which appears revisited in his artworks. Points, lines and shapes are combined in synergy to come to a sense of minimalism, dynamism and order; reaching a sharp representation of the connections between moving objects.
Gabriele is living since several years in Assisi, Umbria, Italy with Francesca, Leonardo, Peter, and the support dog Dojo. He is the Creative Director of Blupixel Agency. “If I have to define what illustration means for me, two words need to be mentioned “No Style”... During these years, I have experimented with passion, the wide possibilities related to drawing. I often covered the role of Assistant for various painters and I attended the International School of Comics. Drawing and sketching have always been a challenge, and I always considered the achievement of a style as a con-
tinuous discovery. I have never taken for granted the fact I was able to do “something artistic”, I am always looking for new styles to experiment with, as well as new directions to explore, such as being a freelance cartoonist, a set designer, advertisement illustrator, storyboard creator... I always like to compare myself with what is different from my style and challenge myself. I like to find a way to mix xx techniques and software together, to find the best way to express the idea. Going from a 3D design to a vector trying to exploit features and characteristics to express better myself can be an example... Drawing has never been just a job for me, it is a passion. A strong passion with up and downs,
but strong. It has always helped me, and I always applied it to all areas of my life. I always thought of Drawing as the ability to find creative solutions to everyday problems; just like a dynamic meditative practice that allows you to understand yourself better. Whenever I am close to any white surface Drawing allows me to approach it in a new way, as a new project, as an opportunity to be different from past styles... I believe this passion will never abandon me and I am really curious to see which new aspects of every day’s life, Drawing will bring me to face.”

Foremost honors.
oscar delmar A 2006 graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona - the city where he based his studio since 2002 - the Canary Islands-born Oscar Delmar is an artist who has brilliantly updated the traditional techniques for graphic illustration. His creative output of recent years includes design, sculpture, installation, street art, painting, and illustration, presenting a coherent body of work but with an eclectic “plus” a probably “unconscious” postmodern discourse. Between his “Monsters” series (Anton Chigurh, Tony Soprano, Joseph Fritzl, etc.), his reinterpretations of classic movie posters (Pulp Fiction, Psycho, Seven, etc.) or his “Portraits” series, there is an “apparent” jump in the techniques used, but undoubtedly the same personal concerns, analysis and interpretation of issues that are important to his life: the cinema, music and generational fear. “Apparent” because his modus operandi is always the same: starting from traditional craft techniques such as cardboard, wires, bulbs, ink, watercolors, pencil, scissors, glue, cutter, marker… He produces a work sifted through modern technology: digital cameras, scanners, design software... His distinguishing characteristic is an intuitive capacity to connect past and future in a work of “art of today”. His work is arousing interest in places as far apart as the US, the Netherlands and Russia - a poster commissioned for a new Hollywood television series and material produced for various European books are recent examples of the growing demand for his illustrations. www.oscardelmar.com
