(Early cover art concept for Jimmy Finnigan by Tom Knight, published by Templar)


Tom Knight is one of life’s true creatives, both artistically and musically — when he’s not drawing he will be playing an instrument of some sort. His background is in graphic design, which gave him a great understanding of form and layout — something that is much harder than it looks.
Tom’s new book, Jimmy Finnigan’s Wild Wood Band, published by Templar is quite simply brilliant: small time village, lots of rules, no fun at all… until Jimmy finds a motley crew (Not thatMotley Crew) But a group of unlikely looking musicians who are about to help him shake things up!

Jonny Duddle Illustrates New Harry Potter Editions

We're very pleased to announce that Jonny Duddle has been selected to illustrate the new children's editions of the Harry Potter series for Bloomsbury Children's Books. It's a brilliant opportunity for his amazing artwork to reach so many children as Harry Potter inspires a new generation of wizards and witches. Jonny worked on a sample artwork which was chosen from three artists by J.K. Rowling and here's the finished cover for the first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

 Jonny has six more covers to illustrate in time for their publication in September 2014, he said: “I’m hugely excited to work my way through the wonderful books. I couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable subject matter. It’s exciting, daunting and I feel the weight of responsibility, I’m hoping that my illustrations faithfully reflect the characters and the world created by J.K. Rowling.”
