After graduating from the London College of Communication in 2008, Emily Rand spent some time working in arts education, running workshops with children in galleries and schools. A trip to Paris and its beautiful children’s bookshops re-ignited her love for children’s books and inspired Emily to create the illustrations for her first book A Dog Day.
Harper Collins US latest non-fiction title, Sounds All Around, written by Wendy Pfeffer is beautifully illustrated by Anna Chernyshova. Her charming characters and colourful environments help explain to preschoolers and toddlers the science behind sounds by showing how vibrations travel through the air to your ears so you can hear them, how sound is measured and what different sounds mean.
THIS WEEK author and illustrator, Benji Davies, creator of The Storm Whale and Grandad’s Island, launched his highly anticipated picture book, The Storm Whale in Winter. Benji describes the book as being like the journey home; just asStorm Whale takes us out to sea, the sequel carries us back, as we find that Noi’s kind deed to the little whale was never forgotten.
Nostalgic and gentle, this book is beautifully crafted, with filmic, sometimes panoramic illustrations and a plot line that will give the reader goosebumps (in a good way) — so strong is the message and sense of there being a true friendship between boy and whale.
So after a wonderful book launch, hosted by our brilliant colleagues at Simon and Schuster, and in anticipation of our cosy Christmas story time, where Benji will be reading us his heart-warming story, I wanted to find out a little bit more about the man behind the books… LM
Phosphor's digital artist Mardo El-Noor recently worked on an exciting project with award-winning editorial cartoonist Tom Scott. Mardo created 8 large-scale digital paintings of Tom’s cartoons, the oldest of which was from 1988. The original cartoons were black and white felt-tip illustrations, on yellowing, coffee-stained paper and were all based on our impact on the environment.
