New Talent at Arena

Arena is proud to introduce another new artist, Kristyna Litten. We were immediately attracted to her limited colour palette and strong eye for composition. She recently graduated from Edinburgh College of Art where she developed a unique visual language which combines hand drawn elements, type and printmaking. Kristyna is already busy writing and illustrating her debut picture book, Chickens Can't See In The Dark, which will be published by Oxford University Press in 2012.

New Talent at Arena

Arena would like to introduce new recruit, Aleksei Bitskoff. A former LCC student and graduate of Camberwell College of Arts' MA Illustration course, Aleksei creates surreal, yet engaging worlds which captivate children and adults alike. We couldn't resist his fantastical creatures and mad monsters and we're not the only ones; Templar Publishing has already commissioned him for their forthcoming Monstrous Book of Monsters.

“World Best Reads” series

Wonderfully versatile artist Richard Merritt has recently completed a fantastic set of 6 book covers for Reader's Digest.
