Earlier this week, Greg McLeod (from The Brothers McLeod) contacted Creature. He came bearing gifts in the form of some explosive banner artwork (above) to decorate the Creaturemag website. This is all very exciting to say the least. Please click here to see the full banner, which appears amongst a range of other banners at the top of the Creature blog.

For those not aware of their work, The Brothers McCleod are triple Bafta nominated animators, represented by Aardman animations as commercial directors and have directed campaigns for a number of exciting clients. They are well known for their short quirky animations that draw you in with distinctive illustrative styling and imaginative characters and story lines, a selection of their short films can be found here: brothersmcleod.co.uk/films.

Aside from their successes in the animation field the Brothers are extraordinarily talented illustrators too. Their eye for detail and intricate technique is perfectly showcased in a recent wall hanging project completed for McKechnies Independent Coffee shop in Stratford-upon-avon. The Brother’s have kindly allowed us to showcase a couple of these wall hangings here on Creaturemag. They really do blow our minds. Here we go:
