Phosphor's Christopher Nielsen was commissioned to create some images for Pixar’s Instagram feed with characters from The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Up, Coco and Finding Nemo having fun in the sun with the theme “Any weather is better with you”.
Chris enjoyed the challenge of illustrating existing (and rather famous!) characters, as opposed to designing characters for picture books himself, as he is more used to doing.
Following the festivity of World Book Day earlier this month, it was timely to go behind the scenes of the magical new picture book The World Book Day Monster written by Adam & Charlotte Guillain. The book, from Egmont, is a celebration of stories, capturing all the excitement and imagination the day inspires as one young reader tries to find someone to share the magic of her favourite book with.
Carrie May was honoured to be asked to illustrate Abi Elphinstone's World Book Day title Ever Dark published by Simon & Schuster. Carrie's stunning cover transports us to another world, making her ethereal style a great choice for this enthralling tale.
