Once again, we have a fantastic talent to welcome to the Pocko Family! Say hello to Ana Benaroya. Ana is a US-based illustrator, designer and typographer extraordinaire; and above all, a jolly good person. When she isn’t photo-shopping, screen printing or drawing something awesome, Ana can be found consuming large amounts of hot sauce. Ana’s client list is impressive, including Time Out New York, The New York Times, ABV News Tonight, The LA Times, Nickelodeon Magazine and several high-profile musicians including The Donnas, Beardyman, Wilco and Nite Jewel. Her work has also been honoured by American Illustration, The Society of Illustrators and the PRINT Regional Design Annual.

We’re thrilled to welcome the ridiculously talented Hvass&Hannibal to our roster of artists.¬†Hvass&Hannibal¬†is a multi-disciplinary arts and design studio based in Copenhagen. Since 2006, its founders, Nan Na Hvass & Sofie Hannibal have worked in close collaborative partnership with illustrative and conceptual design in a number of different fields for numerous clients in Europe, Asia and the US. Whether in the digital realm or on a three-dimensional scale, the studio takes projects from esoteric illustrative beginnings to a full art direction and graphic design solution, all in-house. As well as being image makers we have also directed high profile photographic projects, and created sets and costumes for amongst others, one of Denmark’s famous musical successes of recent years - Efterklang.
Ben Newman was recently commissioned by Wired Magazine to illustrate an article titled ‘How to BBQ with Science’ in their famous ‘how to’ section. We think the results look rather impressive…. Now all we need is some BBQ weather so we can put these tips to good use!
Joey Hi-Fi has recently finished an exciting project with Creature London for The Science Museum; with the theme being ‘Spend Your Summer in Space’, just in time for the summer holidays. The inspiration was a mix of cheerful vintage holiday postcards (think 1950s ‘Visit Skegness!’-style) and outer-space antics. This resulted in some delightfully playful illustrations depicting families holidaying in a typically British manner (we’re talking banana boats, BBQs, body boarding and overloading the roof rack), but in far away galaxies: Brighton beach is swapped for the rings of Saturn, the family car is a space shuttle and the the sausages on the BBQ know not of gravity…
