Yasmeen Ismail – Official Illustrator of BP National Portrait Award Family Trail 2015

Every year, The National Portrait Gallery runs the BP National Portrait awards – inviting the world to take part in a prestigious & respected competition that more often than not contributes a global portfolio of stunning portraiture.

Alongside this amazing exhibition of hand-picked portraits,  families are invited to take part in their family trail to amuse children and get them interested/understanding art and portraits.  Part of the family trail is made up of illustrated vinyl stickers & a pamphlet type worksheet for kids to draw in, complete with competitions. Each year, a noted creative is chosen to illustrate this family trail – previous illustrators for this project have been Jenni Desmond and Salvatore Rubbino.

It comes to no surprise to us therefore, that our very own Yasmeen Ismail was interviewed and chosen to illustrate the characters for the family trail 2015!

Yasmeen’s impressive publishing portfolio, her inky/delicate style and vivid use of delectable colour have earned her this honoured position at The National Portrait Gallery.

Congratulations to Yasmeen for another illustration triumph!

The BP portrait awards are in their 36th year and will run between the 18th of June to the 20th of September.
