Phosphor Art's Laura Redburn recently created a set of illustrations for popular blogger and influencer Liv Purvis' website relaunch. Having previously worked on a collage portrait of Liv, Laura knew her style well and was thrilled to be asked to create two digital collage pieces for the new look What Olivia Did.
Artist Partners have recently recruited the very talented Sarah Perkins, who originally studied illustration at Chelsea School of Art and Central St Martins. Sarah has already an established career in illustrating book covers, in the mass market, and also the literary fiction genres, including some brilliant classics.
Phosphor Art's Laura Redburn was approached by Wired Magazine to create this mini collage to accompany an article comparing Hollywood film Passengers with British novelist Katie Khan's debut Hold Back the Stars. Laura originally created a piece with her stash of vintage collage materials, but her and the team at Wired decided it needed a more futuristic sci-fi look, resulting in this stunning digital collage of film stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
We love this illustration New Division artist Vari Telleria created for 'You and Your Wedding', in her signature collage style. Bouncy Castles and Gummy Bears don't often feature on the pages of bridal magazines, but Vari's fun filled artwork was the perfect accompaniment for the magazine's guide to avoiding a romance overload on the big day.
Laura Redburn's collages lend themselves really well to editorial work and it's always great to see her work in print. You'll find one of Laura's gorgeous collages in the most recent issue of Betty Magazine, accompanying an article about 'The Perks of Being a Shrinking Violet', a subject Laura identified with a great deal.

Congratulations to Neal Layton whose book, The Story of Stars, has won the SLA Information Book Award for the under 7's category. The judges said that his book is… "a superb simple and straightforward book which informs through being totally entertaining: with working pop-ups, humour and an imaginative progression - it is a totally engaging delight."
Neal's interest in life, the universe and everything has led to an amazing amount of research and his collaboration with paper engineer, Richard Ferguson has created a unique, child friendly view of the stars, solar systems and galaxies. Neal poses and answers the big questions that you might ask when you look up at the night sky full of stars and wonder: "what are they and where are they?". This book is the third in the series, published by Hodder Children's Books.
