Artist Spotlight: Joshua Billingham

joshuabillingham11Bio

Birmingham illustrator, Joshua Billingham creates twisted characters that pay homage to the New York subway art of the early 80s.

He intensifies his creations by layering unusual combinations of textures and drawing influence from the cartoons of his childhood .

Josh, aka Gent 48, also likes to people-watch. He often makes caricatures of the folk he meets on his travels. After all, real life can be pretty warped too.

We love the new cover look Carrie May has created for best selling author Katherine Rundell. Carrie worked with the design team at Faber and Faber to illustrate this beautiful cover for Rundell’s debut novel ‘The Girl Savage’, the tale of a young girl uprooted from her life in Zimbabwe, destined for boarding school in London. We love Carrie’s artwork, which captures Will’s wild adventures on her African farm.
