The King’s Dream

The University of Aberdeen has recently commissioned Natalie Kilany to illustrate "The Kings Dream", a fairytale written by Jackie Ross. The story follows a King who is troubled by nightmares; with worries of what the future holds for his people. None of his expert advisors can explain his dreams, but a young hill farmer has insights which help the King harness the collective wisdom of his people and let him sleep peacefully once more. Natalie says "In a nut shell the fairytale tells the story of two contrasting futures faced by Britain's hill communities, based on research from the Sustainable Uplands project. This was a fantastic book to work on, I was given complete creative freedom that I utterly enjoyed and flourished in." Commissioner Mark Reed was very happy too, he said of the illustrations "... they’re BEAUTIFUL!!!! Really great job Natalie and bang on time! Very pleased indeed..."

Funny history lessons

Del Thorpe has illustrated a brand new series of Tony Robinson history books for Pan Macmillan. They are a delightfully funny look into the weird and wonderful world of some of the most successful civilisations in history - the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and the British Empire. Del's fantastic drawings are the perfect compliment to the text and really bring it to life with their humour. So prepare to be amazed, shocked and disgusted by this cracking history lesson!

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."
