I’m hijacking Interesting Thursdays this week from our senior copywriter Joseph Hughes to bring you some beautiful illustrations from three talented artists.

First up is Fiona Staples, a Canadian comic book artist who is regarded as one of the best in the industry. She is the illustrator for my favourite comic book series, Saga.

Next up is Marlene Freimanis, she is a freelance artist based in Los Angeles who uses are variety of mediums to showcase her striking art. She has a macabre quality in a lot of her work but also creates exquisite portraits of celebrities. She gets bonus points for her interpretation of the character Leeloo from The Fifth Element.

And finally an artist I have admired for a several years now, Silvia Pelissero. She goes by the pseudonym of Agnes Cecile online and she is an exceptional artist from Rome who is best know for her watercolours. Her paintings are so captivating as she uses watercolour in way that encapsulates the emotion of the people she is painting, here are some examples of her breathtaking work.

I hope you enjoyed this interruption to the schedule, and until the next time I take Interesting Thursday hostage, bye. Rickie.
