Maltese illustrator Julian Mallia, better known as Julinu, has clinched himself the 2016 the Association of Illustrators’ award for the Advertising- New Talent Award.

The illustration, 'Maia’s Morning Malaise', was created to promote the short film Loophole, a movie which is part of an MA in Sequential Design / Illustration at the University of Brighton, and which currently exists as an oil-on-paper, stop-motion animation trailer and an accompanying storyboard book.

Julinu told The Guardian that the final illustration consists of three oil paintings that were scanned and digitally merged in a process reminiscent of photographic double exposure.

The Maltese illustrator is a graduate of the University of Brighton and he has spent a number of years working in the advertising industry in local companies like JP Advertising and Pure Concepts among others. He currently works as a freelancer and he was previously shortlisted for an AOI World Illustration Award in 2015 for his entry entitled “The Plight of the Homeless Orca”.
