Artist Sharm Murugiah Launches A New Magazine For Up And Coming Artists Called “This Must Be The Place”

Poster Posse artist Sharm Murugiah is embarking on a new project in an effort to allow illustrators to showcase their work for the attention of the publication industry. Sharm is an illustrator, graphic designer and budding art director and he wants to help share the talents of other up and coming artists in a publication format.

He is letting the artists decide how they come up with their final piece for the mag. “It could be a moment in time from the film or an ensemble describing characters, events or ideas from the film.”  One thing he wants to make clear is “this is an illustration for a magazine it is NOT a poster so no film names, actor names etc..
