We are thrilled to share a behind the scenes look at the making of The Greatest Magician in the World illustrated by Garry Parsons written by Matt Edmondson and published by Macmillan Children's Books.
The summer season is underway at Goodwood Racecourse and Garry Walton has once again created a stunning set of artworks for their marketing materials. Working in the pastiche style that has become synonymous with the world's most beautiful racecourse, Garry has produced several illustrations for various online and print campaigns.
Specialising in fruit, vegetables and the natural world, Anna has illustrated over 100 books and worked with chefs, writers and publishers from around the globe.
Over her 25 year career Anna has honed her skills in watercolour, pen & ink, oils and most recently, egg tempera. Her methods may vary but the joy of her artwork is constant; each piece she creates is a celebration of the fruit, vegetable or animal she has captured with her inimitable flare.
Anna achieves all of this against a backdrop of rural living, all recorded in her daily instagram post, which her 5,000 plus followers have come to adore. Her illustration work is inextricably linked with her way of life, Anna meets the ups and downs of a self sufficient lifestyle with a smile, embracing each challenge as it comes. An attitude she has also applied to her illustration career.
Constantly evolving, honing her craft and listening to the market, Anna's determination has secured her place as one of the UK's leading natural history illustrators. We spoke with Anna about the beauty of working traditionally, her seemingly idyllic lifestyle and the joy she gets from her work.
Here are a small selection of the illustrations Ben Scruton produced for the self storage company Ready Steady Store. Ben created a series of characters representing people from all walks of life for use across this print and online advertising campaign.
