Josh Cochran

Josh Cochran is an illustrator who has lived in Taiwan, Los Angeles, and currently resides in New York where he teaches at Parsons School of Design. In school, he had aspirations of becoming a background painter for DreamWorks, but saw that hand-painted murals were being replaced by digitally printed backdrops. He preferred personal, imaginative work and turned to illustration. His mix of realism with cartoon inspired elements and quirky humor have brought him work from a diverse group of clients for editorial, advertising, books, broadcast, and internet media including Ace Hotel, The Atlantic, Volkswagen, New Yorker, Esquire, GQ, Billabong, Sony, and McSweeney's.

Lee Mawdsley

Lee Mawdsley is a London based photographer whose commercial portfolio is packed with quietly engrossing architectural images. He strikes a different chord with his personal work which features kaleidoscopic flower arrangements. Titled "Garlands," the set creates an essence of hedonistic beauty directly taken from the natural environment.
