In the post this week we were lucky enough to receive a copy of ‘Beauty and the Beast’, illustrated by The Artworks’ very own Sarah Gibb.
“I’m really proud of this book. I’ve always loved the classic fairytales and so was thrilled to be asked to illustrate Beauty and the Beast for Orchard. I had particular fun creating the Beast for this book. I took lots of photos of the animals at London zoo. Back home in the studio I took inspiration from the warthog and the lions. I also wanted to make the Beast beautiful in a raw and animalistic way, so you could say he was cross between a warthog, a lion and Mr Darcy!”
Sarah’s beautiful illustrations really breathe new life into this classic fairytale and she is even starting work on a third book, in the series for Orchard, to be published in 2014. ’Beauty and the Beast’ is available to preorder now from Amazon!
