Selçuk Demirel’s new book “Man on a Beach".
A man sitting at his desk dreams about the beach…
He looks at the shore, the ocean, the horizon: hand in hand with the stars, he draws on the sky. From his apartment filled with books, he tries to reach the world of dreams…
Selçuk Demirel invites the reader into his imaginary world, floating like a poem. And John Berger’s narration makes it a memorable tale.

Andre da Loba, Javier Jaen and Olimpia Zagnoli (all represented by Marlena Agency) were recently selected by the New York Times op-ed page creatives as those who illustrated the most memorable art during 2013. Only a select group of 20+ illustrators were chosen by the New York Times, among hundreds of illustrators who contribute to the paper annually.
Tuttodupezzo is an animated theater play [by Andre Da Loba] about a man that is all in one piece. Perfect. Pristine. Unaffected by his surroundings. One day he falls into a hole. Breaks in three. And his perception of life changes... . From the original idea of Cristina Bellemo for the book Tuttodunpezzo to be published by Topipittori in the Spring 2014.
This video was awarded a Gold medal by the Society of Illustrators (Moving Image category).
Waldemar Swierzy, one of the great masters of the acclaimed Polish school of poster art, passed away in Warsaw on November 27 at the age of 82. Swierzy created more than 2500 posters during his life, many of them of famous musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Thelonius Monk, and Jimi Hendrix. His circus posters were equally prized around the world. Swierzy's illustrations also graced a variety of other media from magazines and books to CD covers. During the years that Marlena Agency represented Swierzy in the USA, his clients included The New Yorker, UK&USA Magazine, United Airlines' Hemispheres Magazine, The Big Apple Circus, Capitol Records and Bertelsmann.
Swierzy worked in a very traditional way. Though generally asked by American clients to submit sketches before creating final art, he always insisted on going directly to finished illustrations. The end result was always stunning and no one was ever disappointed. Waldemar Swierzy leaves behind an inventive and powerful body of work that will continue to influence the world of art for generations to come.
