New illustrator joins Artist Partners

Artist Partners are proud to announce a big welcome to  a major new  talent: the Illustrator and writer, Charlie Sutcliffe !  This wonderfully talented artist has joined Artist Partners and we are delighted to represent and showcase his talent.

Charlie’s  first picture book  “Zubert” has been written and illustrated by Charlie himself, and this classic children’s book  was  published by Tate Books- which is marvellous news!

Having presented Charlie’s work at Bologna to  various publishers, they were very excited by his unique talents, and hopeful in finding suitable new projects for Charlie to work on in the future.

No end to his talents, Charlie himself has written some  brilliant imaginative texts  which AP are now looking to home with suitable publishers.

Aleksei Bitskoff's Monster Party illustrates this hilarious group of monsters having a birthday party. From hairy to slimy, monsters of all sizes enjoy snot sandwiches and eyeball jelly.

Jonny Duddle Illustrates New Harry Potter Editions

We're very pleased to announce that Jonny Duddle has been selected to illustrate the new children's editions of the Harry Potter series for Bloomsbury Children's Books. It's a brilliant opportunity for his amazing artwork to reach so many children as Harry Potter inspires a new generation of wizards and witches. Jonny worked on a sample artwork which was chosen from three artists by J.K. Rowling and here's the finished cover for the first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

 Jonny has six more covers to illustrate in time for their publication in September 2014, he said: “I’m hugely excited to work my way through the wonderful books. I couldn’t have asked for more enjoyable subject matter. It’s exciting, daunting and I feel the weight of responsibility, I’m hoping that my illustrations faithfully reflect the characters and the world created by J.K. Rowling.”
