Sarah Maycock – William & Son

In what's becoming a bit of a seasonal tradition, Sarah Maycock was once again asked to help usher in Christmas at William & Son with her beautiful brushstrokes. This year's brief saw Sarah telling the story of a little dog called Humbug, who saves Christmas by visiting the store and lending Santa a helping paw.

A Traditional Christmas

Ruth Palmer creates a set of nostalgic seasonal stamps for Jersey Post.

 The Christmas stamps are reminiscent of decades gone by and have just been issued by Jersey Post. Set in the 1950s and 1960s, the artworks depict a traditional festive activity including bringing home the Christmas tree, making the Christmas cake and carol singing; things that bring the family together.

Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post, reflects, “Of course, most of these traditions are still going strong today but Ruth Palmer’s interpretation reminds us of the time before computers and mobile phones, when families wore their Sunday best for Christmas dinner and festive patterned jumpers were worn in a non-ironic way!”

The stamps are available to buy here.

Blackbear The Pirate

Ruth Palmer has completed some very pleasant covers and spreads for Blackbear the Pirate.  Commissioned by the author Steve Buckley, Ruth is now working on her third book in the series. The books follow a pirate bear and crew who are 'named after actual pirates from what historians call the Golden Age of Piracy' with Blackbear based on the famous Blackbeard. Ruth's warm painterly illustrations give the books a traditional classic feel.

Bringing more style to Glamour magazine is Katharine Asher’s cover piece. She was asked to do an illustration as if it was a famous Glamour cover , which was then printed on small notepads and given with the emagazine to all customers. Beautiful.
