Phosphor Art's Luella Wright has been working hard on some illustrations with Jungle Creative for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. Her cute characters have been used so far to decorate the walls of the hospital and for apps, games and books for the patients to interact with.
Meet Nick Diggory as he showcases his new Vector style and celebrates 25 years as professional illustrator!
Here is tells us a bit more about his love of illustration,
"In 1985 I started my own studio and became a full time illustrator. That was over 30 years ago and now here I am, 20,000+ commissions later ...
Amongst other things, I've created characters for Sainsbury's, Asda and Tesco. I've Illustrated countless children's books and am one of Ritzenhoff Glassware's licenced designers. I also fly planes and ride motorbikes, but that's another story. I wouldn't change a thing."
Written by the award-winning author, David Almond, The Tale of Angelino Brown, is a warm and witty tale with charming illustrations by Alex T. Smith, published by Walker Books. Alex had great fun depicting Angelino, the little curly haired angel’s antics in this wonderful children’s story.
Frances Castle’s full colour illustrations are a joy to behold in this fun non-fiction book with a twist. Spot the Mistake: Lands of Long Ago, published by Wide Eyed Editions, tests your knowledge of history by spotting 20 mistakes in every detailed scene.
We've had quite a boozy month here at HF, with Tom Haugomat's Stanley Brewing Beer illustrations, now we're proud to show off Jean Jullien's latest work for Majestic Wines. Jean created 10 stand alone images, without any name, logo or type, to buck the trend of conventional wine labels and to make them fun and playful.
Every now and then we come across a new illustrator and their work just grabs us by the head and heart and shouts "SIGN ME". That was certainly the case when we first came across Quentin Monge, who's work is a sublime cacophony of colour, patterns and characters. Luckily (for us) Quentin was open to our amorous advances and we're happy to announce him as our latest signing. So that just leaves one question to be answered, who's going to be the first person to commission him?
These delightful character designs by Kristyna Litten were based on real DFS employees, for their new advertising campaign launched this month. The TV adverts make heroes from the talented team of craftsmen and women behind the UK's largest sofa manufacturer. Kristyna worked from photographs of each person and was asked to interpret them as if they were made of the materials used to make DFS sofas.
