On 29th July, Marks and Spencer launched a city wide campaign to encourage local communities to make a real difference. Bright (initiated by Bright Educational) took part in one of the twenty-four projects across London and teamed up with local school, Beyond Autism, to design and create a giant mural to brighten the school playground and raise awareness of the small but thriving organisation. 22 year old Bright Artist Lucy Fleming lead the creative team of volunteers and received a warm welcome from the school’s patrons, actors Prunella Scales and Timothy West.
Aleksei Bitskoff illustrates, The Adventures of Long Arm (Scholastic), a tale about schoolboy Ricky Mitre who is very naughty and gets into all sorts of trouble! After a bizarre toilet cleaning incident where his arm gets sucked into the U-bend, Ricky finds that when he takes it out again, it's many times its normal length. And so the superhero Long Arm is born!
We love this fun series of Adverts, which Nila Aye created for Pearson Education. Nila was asked to illustrate the publishers campaign which was used to promoted their Primary Manifesto. Nila's cute characters really brought the project to life.
Juggling many jobs at the moment, our in demand illustrator, Simon Cooper, has recently completed work on an Oxford University Press publication for the educational market.
