Gutierrez, Monica

Monica was born in Rosario city in Argentina but now lives in Buenos Aires with her husband, Alejandro, their 2 children, Sebastian and Lucia, and their 4 dogs! As a young girl, Monica was always drawing and creating with her crayons and paints. She went on to study visual art education at the School of Art in Buenos Aires. She started out working as a colorist for book publishers, newspapers, and magazines publications. Nowadays, she is dedicating most of her time to childrenís illustration.

Bradford, Tim

Living right next to a nature reserve in Nottingham, Tim Bradford also has the convenience of being just half a mile from the city centre. From alpine landscapes to geometry and animals, heís inspired by nature and also loves drawing people of all sizes, shapes and nationalities.

Tim studied for a BA Hons in Illustration at Lincoln University and an MA in Illustration and Animation at Kingston University London.

Everything begins as a pencil sketch, which is then coloured up digitally using Photoshop and Illustrator. With his animation skills, many clients ask him to create work for both print and digital projects where motion is required. For a more physical feel to his work, Tim is increasingly introducing hand drawn elements as well.

Most of Timís imagery is quirky, fun and character based, and his work often incorporates custom typography along with some movement. Life, energy, charm and wit are what he strives for when he creates an illustration, and he likes to find visual solutions that are easy on the eye and keep you looking.

Larkum, Adam

Itís a love of drawing that drives Adam Larkum, and itís something he practices every day, constantly coming up with quirky new characters and putting them in hair-raising situations. And if you chat with Adam for a while he has a few real life hair-raising situations to recount. While he was a teenager, his family lived in Alexandria, Virginia for a while where Adam became the projectionist in the townís cinema. When the bulb blew during the scariest part of Friday The 13th the crowd poured out of the cinema like a lynch mobÖ

This didnít deter Adam from studying animation once he got back to the UK, and as a student he won a competition to create a short film for MOMI and Channel 4. Once his career producing animated commercials was under way, he became an illustrator as well. Heís now created over 30 childrenís books, and illustrates for magazines and packaging.

Adam studied illustration and animation, and received a BA followed by an MA from the Edinburgh College of Art.

Adam believes every commission should start with a pencil in one hand and an eraser in the other, and is never afraid to erase whole areas of a drawing if they arenít right. He loves working in ink on paper and then shifting into Photoshop to bring the piece together. If his work were a film, he says, it would be an Ealing Comedy Ė fun, fast and eccentric.

Holmes, Stuart

Londoner Stuart Holmes is now based in Australiaís creative enclave of Melbourne. Trained as a graphic designer, he felt that illustration allowed him much more freedom, and he developed a flat vector style that has remained popular for well over a decade.

Stuart is addicted to vinyl and wherever he goes seeks out a record crate to dig through. Heís also a huge fan of Southampton FC, and led the team out as a mascot back when he was seven years old.

Beedie, Duncan

Duncan Beedieís cartoony style comes from his background in animation. Based in Bristol, aside from drawing copious quirky images, he collects clockwork robots, can identify pretty much any military aircraft and has a dog called Ivor who you might spot here and there in his work.

Hodges, Lee

Javens, Ben

Ben grew up in a small town in Yorkshire and though he now resides in Birmingham he still holds dear those formative years and his northern roots. Those that know Ben will no doubt tell you he can be a bit of a curmudgeon but that deep down there is a happy soul trying to get out and those that know his work will no doubt see the battle between happy and sad in the characters he draws and the situations they find themselves in. Ben's work is often very simple but always displays a strong emphasis on colour and a carefully considered composition. He takes much of his inspiration from the books he collects about illustrators and designers from the mid 20th century and those of new artistsí that give a nod to past styles and trends. He also fills his working days with music so as to let it seep into his soul and be transformed into something that can be seen.

Sulzberg, Daniel

Illustrator Daniel Sulzberg is based in Santa Barbara, California, and his work is infused with the easy-going creativity that his home state is famous for. Itís colourful and fun, welcoming and sometimes a little bit zany. Maybe thatís why the characters he draws so effortlessly seem to jump to life in his illustrations.

Growing up in a town called Danville, he was always Dan from Danville. After initially trying to emulate his older brother, who was a fine artist, Dan later discovered cartoons, comics and Nintendo games. Soon, he had invented Danvillage, a place for all his whimsical characters to inhabit. Itís become the moniker he works under as an illustrator.

Danís favourite artists include Dali, Murakami and Miyazaki, while Prince and Reggae music keep him juiced up on tunes. He also has a huge collection of 80s vinyl from his days as a DJ.
