Helen Friel – Ascot

Ascot are using Helen Friel's paper cut images to promote event days in their calendar like The Prince’s Countryside Fund Raceday and appeal to people who are not traditional racegoers. The traditional nature of paper cutting emphasises Ascot’s heritage but the bright colours and modern style appeal to a new audience.

Blackbear The Pirate

Ruth Palmer has completed some very pleasant covers and spreads for Blackbear the Pirate.  Commissioned by the author Steve Buckley, Ruth is now working on her third book in the series. The books follow a pirate bear and crew who are 'named after actual pirates from what historians call the Golden Age of Piracy' with Blackbear based on the famous Blackbeard. Ruth's warm painterly illustrations give the books a traditional classic feel.
