The SAA are very pleased to be supporting the World Illustration Awards by sponsoring The SAA Agents Award for New Talent.

Carole Bouvier: On a Spring Day, Winner of the SAA Agents Award for New Talent

The SAA run a new talent award every year in association with the AOI’s World Illustration Awards. Carole Bouvier was our winner in 2022 for her piece titled: On a Spring Day.

 

Carole’s entry really stood out and we were all very impressed with her strong compositions, use of colour and her visual storytelling – On a Spring Day is a fresh approach at picture book illustration.  Carole’s imagery has personality and she shows a sensitivity to the subject matter. We believe her work has a broad commercial appeal that could be applied to all manner of creative solutions. She’s a worthy winner!

 

The prize is 6 months mentoring with one of our member agents who is selected very carefully to fit with the winner. Carole chose The Artworks and started the mentorship earlier this year so we’ll check back on her soon to find out how it all went.

 

Carole is a French illustrator based in Cambridge, UK. Before completing a Children's Book Illustration MA at ARU, her initial career was in independent film distribution, an occupation that developed and nourished her passion for storytelling and her taste for strong compositions.

 

The illustrations were part of Carole's Masters Stage project for the MA, a picturebook called On A Spring Day, told in images and haikus - a Japanese form of poetry.

Congratulations to Rachael Saunders on being longlisted in the WIA’s 2022.

Congratulations to Rachael Saunders, who’s panoramic illustration of Krka National Park has been long listed in the WIA Awards 2022. We featured Rachael’s incredible illustration previously here, when it won the Wacom Cintiq 16 challenge.

“My epic patterned panoramic pays homage to Krka National Park, Croatia. Its sheer scale and level of detail pushed my skills to the limit, but also allowed me great freedom as I pursued to achieve an image that was truly immersive and playfully explored the flora and fauna of the park.”
