Benice an Adventure of Love & Friendship

Written by Metin Karayaka and illustrated by Rohan Eason, Benice is a wonderful story about friendship and discovery.

Prepare to be wowed by Rohan Eason's latest illustrations for this charming ebook which has been published this week.

Its a sweet old fashioned story alikened to Kidnapped or Treasure Island, with friendship and love at its heart. Starring sharks, pirates, parrots, parents, lobster-popsters, Seabubbles, Giant Yang Yang, Little Fan Fan, aunties, sisters, brothers and friends, Benice will take you on a journey that’s as heartwarming as it is hair-raising.

Rohan's distinct style of illustration brings the story to life with images of pirates, parrots and much more ...jumping out of the pages.

Rohan tells us a bit more about the book,

"It has allowed me to explore a new process and add full colour to my repertoire, using heritage coloured naturally pigmented inks to create a strong and vibrant dimension to my black and white drawings. The author Metin asked me to create works that would punctuate a nightly reading of the book to his children, something to dream of, and inspire, hopefully I've done just that."

Time to Snuggle Up with Kristyna Litten

The latest DFS TV ad features some wonderful new character designs by Kristyna Litten, the ninth advert in the Aardman-designed campaign for the sofa manufacturer. Time to Snuggle Up welcomes in “the Cosy Season” with DFS’s Autumn & Winter collection starring Pumpkin, the little cat and connoisseur of comfort. As burnt orange leaves fall and swirl about her, she peeks through the windows of a terraced street watching people curl up with their family on DFS sofas. This spurs her on to get out of the cold and back into her home to curl up on her very own comfy spot on the sofa. 
Kristyna created nine new characters for Time to Snuggle Up but there were many more variations created before the final line-up was decided upon. 
Kristyna Litten is represented by Arena Illustration.
