Poetic mural by Stewart Easton

Highly talented artist and embroiderer Stewart Easton (represented by Artist Partners) was commissioned to produce a large mural for Outline Editions Christmas Print Sale.  The wall mural needed to represent the area of Stoke Newington.

Stewart was inspired by reading that the poet Edgar Allen Poe had been educated in Stoke Newington. The mural itself is displayed  almost on the exact spot, where the school Edgar Allen Poe attended is placed. The image is loosely based on his  poem "The Raven"

Jonny Duddle: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Bloomsbury have revealed the cover illustration by Jonny Duddle for the second book the famous Harry Potter series by J K Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The cover shows the dramatic scene in the chamber itself with Harry facing the basilisk and Ginny Weasley lying on the floor beyond.

 Jonny describes his process in his Q&A from Bloomsbury:

How do you as an artist approach such a large job? Where do you begin with such a wide range of possibilities?

“I’m taking one book at a time. I read the cover brief, and then I read the story, making notes and occasional sketches. I collect references, from my library of non-fiction books, search online and take my own photographs. I’ve recruited my neighbours’ son, who is suitably Potter-esque, although he annoyingly had his slightly wild hair cut for the new school term. I make numerous sketches of the main elements of the cover and then cobble them all together digitally, until I have a cover rough I feel happy to send to Bloomsbury and J.K. Rowling. I hear back very quickly with comments on my rough, which I then tweak or redraw until everyone’s happy for me to progress. Then I ‘paint’ each cover digitally.”

Kristyna Litten: Just Published: Pigeon Pie, Oh My!

Illustrated by Kristyna Litten, Pigeon Pie, Oh My!  is a great cause-and-effect story with lots of visual clues throughout the narrative and teaches the reader that even if you're little, you can make yourself count.

Down on Budd Farm, the naughty goat causes havoc, and eats the scarecrow’s clothes, leaving the pigeons to steal the corn in the farmers field but the other farmyard animals have a clever plan to save the crop. This fun picture book about working together, written by Debbie Singleton, is published by Oxford University Press this month.

Kristyna has brought life and humour to the farmyard characters, giving this story warmth and style with her limited colour palette and attention to detail.
