Back in the heatwave of the UK summer Spencer was approached to create the Christmas campaign for the French postal service ' La Poste'
The brief was straight forward, asking for an illustration of what Santa's Christmas ' sorting office ' might look like as well as populating it with elves carrying parcels - illustrated and photographic.
The images had to work across a variety of formats from huge billboard to tiny DM leaflet, here’s a selection of the final work.
All new PeepShowReel! A montage of recent projects and some old favourites. Includes work for 'Honey Monster Puffs' for Finn Communications, 'Starbucks' for 72&Sunny, 'Map of Hell' for National Geographic, 'How We Got To Now' for PBS, 'Ong Ong' for Blur and 'Stop MS' for The Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Limited Edition Kiehl's packaging for Le Bon Marché in Paris by Miles Donovan.
Spencer worked with Livity on Persil's - Dirt is Good - campaign, creating the lead character, background assets and icons for there Wild Explorers app which encourages kids to get outside and play. Whether its creating a bug hotel, a rain catcher or making nature art, the activities are conveniently grouped depending on how much time you have to get your hands (and feet) stuck into nature ; )

Where's Warhol? by Catherine Ingram & Andrew Rae, published by Laurence King, April 18th 2016.
If Andy Warhol could have traveled through time, where would he have gone? Where's Warhol? gives him his very own time machine, and finds out...
Join Andy on a tour through time as he visits the art of the past. From Michelangelo at work on the Sistine Chapel, to Jean-Michel Basquait painting the streets of New York, via the French Impressionists and the Bauhaus, Andy has immersed himself in 12 iconic moments from Art History and the reader's challenge is to find him in each. Whilst searching for Andy amongst the crowds, readers can also find a host of historical characters and features from each period. Spot glamorous 1970s celebrities surrounding Andy at Studio 54, for example, whilst key Modernists can be identified at work at the Bauhaus.
Each scene has been recreated from careful archival research by art historian Catherine Ingram and painstakingly llustrated by Andrew Rae. Educational, fun and visually engaging, Where's Warhol? is the alternative, illustrated guide to the history of art for both adults and children.
A mid-life crisis no longer means a flashy sports car. Instead it’s all about the bike: specifically a souped-up ultra-light carbon road machine. Welcome to the world of the MAMILs (Middle-Aged Men In Lycra) – that strange tribe who are addicted to sweating up steep hills wearing ill-advised bib shorts.
Finally here’s the definitive book for the aspiring Bradley Wiggins in your life. From Aero to Base Miles, from Cadence to Drafting, The Modern MAMIL explores every aspect of their obsession. Packed with history, customs and rules, it’s an essential celebration that will be loved by Mamils new, old and soon to be.
A fun little project by Spencer Wilson for The Frieze Art Fair illustrating their sculpture park guide.
