How to Make a Kite

 

BBC Countryfile Magazine recently commissioned Liam O'Farrell for a landscape kite-flying illustration.

BBC Countryfile Magazine is packed with news of the countryside and outdoor living, and for this feature on kite building, Liam has produced a beautiful spread of children flying a kite in an English landscape - infact one just outside his back door.

He explains, "I produced the initial visuals based on the fields around the Vale of Avalon where I live in Somerset. This has quite a hilly landscape so it is not suitable for vast fields of crops. Once we agreed on the initial concepts, I went ahead with the final illustration. It was a real joy to do and looks pretty effective in the final magazine. That said, I won’t attempt making another kite. I know my limits."

BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives Visit Artist Partners

Earlier in the year the team from BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives visited our office to film part of an episode at Artist Partners HQ. The story centres around Shirley Thompson, an AP artist represented in the 60's - 70's  whose beautiful  illustrations were found in a skip many decades ago, preserved and cherished before finding their way back to her family all these years afterwards.

Shirley’s fashion illustrations are exquisite and the artwork rescued in this story were for a Burberry catalogue in the 60s.
