BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives Visit Artist Partners

Earlier in the year the team from BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives visited our office to film part of an episode at Artist Partners HQ. The story centres around Shirley Thompson, an AP artist represented in the 60's - 70's  whose beautiful  illustrations were found in a skip many decades ago, preserved and cherished before finding their way back to her family all these years afterwards.

Shirley’s fashion illustrations are exquisite and the artwork rescued in this story were for a Burberry catalogue in the 60s.

Mary Woodin ‘Classic Bakes’ illustrations

A little booklet of “Classic Bakes’ illustrated by Mary Woodin comes with October’s Ideal Home magazine. Mary was asked to illustrate classic recipes from the magazine’s archives dating right back to 1920. A keen cook, Mary was delighted to have an excuse to dig out her battered rolling pin and vintage whisk to create these evocative illustrations!

Just Published: Pam Ayres’ You Made Me Late Again! Illustrated by Susan Hellard

Pam Ayres has a wonderful new collection of poems and anecdotes published this month by Ebury Press. You Made Me Late Again! is the third collection of her poems that Susan Hellard has had the pleasure in illustrating. This really is a lovely partnership, Sue's pen & ink drawings set the tone beautifully and are a perfect foil for Pam's witty observations of life.

E2 Living

Commissioned by Strudel, Montana Forbes has created some top drawings for The Colt E2 Brochure.
Montana was asked to produce five illustrations for the booklet which shows off a new living complex in East London's Bethnal Green. Each had to depict residents who would occupy the apartments, socialise and work in the surrounding areas. The results are great looking artworks, which work particularly well in the final design. Montana says "It was good fun and very interesting to make up the characters...the chosen demographic being 20-30....creative and fashion forward but very individual in look."
