Everyone's favourite troublemaker is back with a new edition of Just William covers by contemporary illustrators, published by Macmillan.
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.
Sam Hadley has illustrated the cover artwork for Captain in Calico - the lost novel by George MacDonald Fraser. This was actually the first novel written by the author but it was originally rejected by publishers and put away in a fire-prof safe by the author which was discovered by his children after his death.
Phosphor Art’s Pastiche artist was recently commissioned by Event Magazine to create a number of illustrations to sit alongside a preview of The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz.
A new museum dedicated to the art of storytelling, funded by legendary Star Wars director, George Lucas, is to be built in Chicago and planned to be completed in 2018.
We are extremely proud to learn that artwork from Chris Moore is one of the first to be selected to exhibit.
Chris is a world-renowned commercial illustrator specialising in sci-fi illustration and the piece chosen by the Lucas Museum was painted for Philip K. Dick’s classic novel “Ubik”. It fits beautifully in the catalogue of images that have so far been revealed on their website.
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.
