Artist Interview – Anna Koska

 

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.

Robyn Neild for Headline Books

Robyn Neild was delighted to be asked to illustrate a new series look
for best selling author Jo Thomas. Robyn worked with our friends in
the Headline art department to create a signature style for Jo’s
novels. Beginning with re-jacketing the runaway hit ‘The Oyster
Catcher’  Robyn worked with the team to produce a beautiful cover, in
her fabulous watercolour style. Robyn has since created covers for
‘The Chestnut Tree’, which was released at the end of last year and
‘The Olive Grove’ which is out in March.

The Russian Ballet Collection

In one of the most ambitious film restoration projects of the century The Russian Ballet Collection is the culmination of a unique, 10-year-plus assignment by RTRWorldwide to remaster and reveal classic Russian ballet productions, and their unparalleled Soviet-era stars, to a wider audience.

Designer Bruno Tilley, represented by Artist Partners, was commissioned on this special mission with the challenge of branding and designing the collection’s packaging.

In a way of enticing a new generation to these old loved classics, he asked fellow Artist Partners illustrator Sharon Pinsker to get involved and the results are stunning.

The collection features 5 DVDs: Giselle, Swan Lake , Don Quixote, Spartacus and The Nutcracker.

Each cover illustrates a dancer from the ballet depicted perfectly in Sharon’s romantic figurative style.

As a whole the DVD set look fabulous and would make a perfect collectors item for any ballet lover. The Ballet Bag obviously agree with us as they have the collection listed under “Five Xmas Gift Ideas” on their website

Sharon’s illustrations have been so well received that the Telegraph has opened a competition with the chance to win a full set of the limited edition prints. The prize draw runs until the 31st January so it is definitely worth entering!

There is more in-depth information about the restoration project in The Telegraph
