Event attendees were treated to a fascinating talk and Q&A with the multi award-winning illustrator
Diane Ewen has gone from strength to strength, and was this year invited to be the ‘Illustrator of the Fair’ at LBF 2022. With her work on multiple titles being showcased across the stands, Diane also gave an insightful and engaging talk about her process and approach to her work in front of a packed audience.
Diane spoke of becoming infatuated with creating from an early age, finding inspiration in the pre-Raphaelites, as well as highlighting the importance of representation in children’s books. The Q&A concluded with wonderful advice to budding illustrators to pick up a sketchbook, start drawing and find your voice.
As well as winning the inaugural Jericho Prize, Diane has seen massive success with picture book ‘Coming to England’, written by Baroness Floella Benjamin, which was featured in Amazon’s Amplifying Black Voices campaign during Black History Month 2021
Lizzie King has contributed a design to the “You Got This” International Women’s Day collection for River Island. Applying her own brand of eye catching bold illustration, River Island “knew instantly we had to get her involved”.
Following on from their previous collaboration, Sam Prentice has created another wonderful illustration for Elle Decoration. Boasting Sam’s unique style, the illustration can be seen accompanying “Why we all need a friend who can offer honest, unfiltered interiors advice” online.
