Our favourite superhero duck with the supersonic quack and his zebra sidekick are back with a tasty new adventure: Adventure Duck VS The Armadillo Army. Aleksei Bitskoff’s illustrations explode of the page in this quacking tale written by Steve Cole and published this month by Orchard Books.
Printmaker and illustrator Graham Carter’s intricate and beautifully patterned work is influenced by the natural world and all of it’s textures and hues. When the conservation writer Benedict Macdonald got in touch about Graham illustrating his latest book, Rebirding, it seemed like the perfect fit.
Aleksei Bitskoff was commissioned by Discover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford, East London, to create concept work and large scale illustrations for wall vinyls for their magical Story World zone. The space is at the very heart of the centre and is designed to inspire children’s curiosity and imagination as they are encouraged to create their own stories, read, draw and play.
