Thomas Flintham was commissioned by Quercus Fiction to illustrate The Last Wild by Piers Torday. This is an adventure novel about an extraordinary boy called Kester, who’s life is transformed by a flock of excited pigeons who are talking to him, he realizes his life will never be the same again. The pigeons fly Kester to a wild place where the last creatures in the land have survived. A wise stag needs Kester’s help, and together they must embark on a great journey.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ illustrated book by Sarah Gibb

In the post this week we were lucky enough to receive a copy of ‘Beauty and the Beast’, illustrated by The Artworks’ very own Sarah Gibb.
“I’m really proud of this book. I’ve always loved the classic fairytales and so was thrilled to be asked to illustrate Beauty and the Beast for Orchard. I had particular fun creating the Beast for this book. I took lots of photos of the animals at London zoo. Back home in the studio I took inspiration from the warthog and the lions. I also wanted to make the Beast beautiful in a raw and animalistic way, so you could say he was cross between a warthog, a lion and Mr Darcy!”
Sarah’s beautiful illustrations really breathe new life into this classic fairytale and she is even starting work on a third book, in the series for Orchard, to be published in 2014. ’Beauty and the Beast’ is available to preorder now from Amazon!

The Sweetness of Forgetting

Quercus Books recently commissioned Lucy Davey to do this lovely cover for one of their titles The Sweetness of Forgetting and liked it so much that they have just asked her to illustrate the back cover too!
We agree that it's a stunning illustration, typical of Lucy's fresh and evocative style and use of colour.
