Tequila Mockingbird

Towards the end of last year Lauren Mortimer illustrated 'Tequila Mockingbird'; a cocktail book published by Running Press.  The book which contains recipes based on classic novels is now out and available to buy!

Lauren was commissioned to produce 40 full page illustrations, as well as the cover. She says "My job was to illustrate the recipes incorporating key themes from the book upon which it was based. I used only graphite, creating quite surreal images throughout; (Lord of the Mai Tai's, Charlie and the Chocolate Faketini, Gin Eyre are a few of the titles....), it was such a fun and great creative project for me...it also got a great review in the Evening Standard (news)paper."

Read For Good

Keith Robinson's work for the charity 'Read For Good' continues with this latest set of illustrations. The images which are for a variety of uses such as bookmarks, certificates, sponsorship cards and posters, are to communicate the pleasure kids can get from reading. Last year, Keith designed the mascot and logo for the charity; Jamie and the orange balloon can be seen 'unifying' this set of images.
"'Read for Good' improves children's lives by encouraging and enabling children in primary and secondary schools to enjoy the powerful positive effects of reading for pleasure. In doing so these children also fundraise fantastic sums of money - to help seriously ill children across the UK."
