Phosphor Art are pleased to introduce you to Marcus (AKA Marc Bach) who they jumped at the chance to add to their books! Marcus works with a number of different techniques and materials but his sense of humour always shines through in his often surrealist illustrations. Marcus has won several awards and nominations, most recently Best Fiction Children’s Book at Junceda Illustration Awards 2014 (Spain) and was shortlisted at Jonathan Cape/The Observer/Comica Short Story Prize 2014 (UK).
We've long admired Levi Pinfold's illustrations, so we're delighted to welcome him on board the good ship, Arena.
Some of you may be familiar with Levi's first picture book, The Django (Templar), based on the story of legendary jazz musician Django Reinhardt which was shortlisted for the English Best Children's Illustrated Book Award in 2011. Levi was voted Best Emerging Illustrator in the Early Years Awards in 2010 and he also won the Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award in 2011.
Since graduating in 2006 he has become well known for his detailed paintings and charming storytelling style. Levi's second book, Black Dog, was published to critical acclaim in 2011 and he's working on a new picture book with Templar at the moment.
