Varoom 36 The Rhythm Issue: Contents

Material Rhythms

Materials direct our work and our way of working, our stance before the page or screen. In this issue Brian Grimwood, Ged Palmer and Marguerite Carnec reflect on the tools and materials they use and the creative rhythm and expression they enable

15 Emerging Image Makers

Varoom showcases some of the most striking image-making from the crop of 2017 art school graduates, guided by the AOI's global network of professional bodies and educational institutions. The images are a sample of outstanding work from Kristiana to Kingston to South Korea – from children's stories to social observation to fashion and politics, there are new rhythms emerging. Follow these young image-makers as they take the pulse of changing time

The Commission, The Client, The Creative

In the professional relationship between client and image-maker, nailing the brief depends on everything from the client choosing the right creative for the job in the first place to the image-maker responding to feedback.

Animator and director Stephen McNally, Iranian filmmaker Majid Adin and production company Blinkink reflect on the making of the new Rocket Man animation. This reinterpretation of Elton John's 1970s classic song tells the story of a refugee, drawing on Adin's own experience of his journey across Europe during the 2015 refugee crisis, arriving in the Calais jungle camp before being granted asylum in the UK. The animation was launched at the Cannes Film Festival.

Profile: Jean-Philippe Delhomme

Since the 1980s, the work of French illustrator, Jean-Philippe Delhomme has explored with visual wit and elegance the worlds of fashion and culture. Characterised as a fashion illustrator, Delhomme talks to Varoom editor John O'Reilly about the demise of blogs, taking on photography and how Hockney liberated his use of colour

Be-Bop-A-Lula, rhythm, and understanding how to work with it, is at the heart of all creativity. But new technology is rapidly changing the rhythms of image-making, of collaboration, and how we manage the rhythm of everyday life.
