Phosphor Art’s Poonam Mistry has just completed an exciting project illustrating a book containing stories and poems from across the Commonwealth. A River of Stories Volume 2: Earth was commissioned by Lift Education and The Commonwealth Education Trust.
This is the first book published by the culture magazine; a book marketed as the 'bible of creative advice'. Miss Led's portraits of Alex Gibney and Kalle Lasn grace the inside pages - she says "I really enjoyed working in macro detailing on these illustrations".
Tune into CBeebies tonight to see Christopher Corr's illustrations in 'Don't Spill the Milk!'
Written by Stephen Davies and illustrated by Chris, the book published by Andersen Press will be read tonight at 6.50pm by Ore Oduba. The story introduces a different culture to small children as it follows Penda carrying a bowl of milk to her father over the grasslands.

This retro inspired illustration was created by Migy Blanco for the BBC’s classical music magazine. His great use of lettering and clever mix of iconography provides a super stylish advert that shows what musical events are happening around the UK. This is just one of the many pieces that Migy has produced for magazines around the world
