Frances Castle: Interactive Games for The Mary Rose Museum

Frances Castle was commissioned by a new media design agency to illustrate two interactive games for The Mary Rose Museum. Built alongside HMS Victory at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the new state-of-the-art museum houses Henry VIII's famous warship and many of the 19,000 artifacts which were recovered with it from the sea in 1982. 52,000 visitors have already flooded through the museum's doors since it opened on 31st May!
Frances had to illustrate objects and characters for 'What's for Dinner' which gives visitors a chance to choose the menu for a crew of over 500 men and officers. She also designed a fun shooting game called 'Foil the French' featuring four different types of guns with different firing ranges – visitors are set the challenge to disable the enemy ships in order to capture them, not to sink them!

Matilda Harrison: To Bee or Not to Bee

We’re always interested in seeing our illustrators personal work, so we were delighted when Matilda Harrison sent us this. She has always loved to experiment with visual quotes and this is a recent interpretation of one by the Bard himself. Matilda's style of painting is influenced by naïve and folk art but filtered through a sophisticated eye, each brush stroke is meticulously considered and her work always has a very strong narrative quality to it.

Serge Seidlitz Jigsaw Puzzles

Serge Seidltz was commissioned by Educational Insights to design 8 children's jigsaw puzzles. Each puzzle is made up of between 24 and 48 pieces with words printed on one side and parts of the picture on the other.
The puzzles work by choosing a piece, reading the word on it and searching the puzzle tray for the synonym to that word and then setting the piece in place. Finishing the puzzle then reveals the hidden picture.
