Manley, Matt

Currently based in Marshall, Michigan, Matt Manley has been working as a freelance illustrator for over twenty years. His illustration is primarily figurative and symbolic with surrealist leanings, and past client work includes editorial, corporate, medical, book, and higher education. Though in the end his work is technically digital collage, the process integrates both traditional and digital media. Collage elements are original oil paintings and drawings, with occasional scanned found objects and photos added to the mix, all united in Photoshop.

Pyle, Chuck

Chuck Pyle tells stories with a paintbrush, whether warmhearted Rockwellian scenes, or hardhearted Noir detective stories, he brings a cinematic sense to the scene and setting.

Spurll, Barbara

Barbara Spurll’s family immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada from London, England, when she was three-and-a half. She always loved to draw, so her mom signed her up for Saturday morning art classes in grade one. Her interest never waned and at sixteen, she signed herself up for life drawing classes where she learned contour line drawing. A few years later, she moved east to Toronto to study fine art at the Artist’s Workshop and the New School of Art. She went on to study design and illustration at George Brown College, where she would later teach illustration part time. Barbara’s professional career began as a freelance illustrator with Jim Harrison, art director at the Toronto Star which led to regular assignments with a variety of newspapers and magazines. It was children’s publisher and designer Kathryn Cole who saw her work and approached her about illustrating “Rhinos for Lunch and Elephants for Supper!”, a re-telling of an African folk tale about a group of animals intimidated by a posturing cave monster. Barbara's most recent work consists of portraits in watercolor.

Vitale, Stefano

Stefano Vitale is an internationally acclaimed illustrator and artist. While studying for a degree in Economics at the University of Southern California, he often traveled to Mexico and the Southwest. There he found inspiration in the simplicity of the popular local folk art. This influenced him so much that when he completed his economics degree Vitale continued at The Arts Center in Pasadena, California for a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Vitale’s oil paintings on wood have earned him international awards and a retrospective of his life’s work in his hometown of Padua, Italy. Vitale is best known for his beautiful folk-style which has earned him numerous awards and a reputation as one of the most sought after children’s book illustrators. After living in the USA for many years, he moved to Venice with his wife Pamela Berry and their two children. www.stefanovitale.com

Williams, Dan

I am a graduate of the Royal College of Art and am currently living in London renovating a large old Victorian house and building a magnificent studio. My time is divided between illustration, painting on location and lecturing. For me all 3 disciplines feed each other, keeping me on my toes and keen to explore new uses for my work. Travel is a very important ingredient in all of this and a strong element within much of my work. The last few years I have been traveling in South Eastern Asia, Northern Africa and Europe. I love the insight, excitement and energy of geography and people

Steele, Robert Gantt

Robert Gantt Steele loves illustrating the relationship between natural and man made subjects. His paintings of architecture, for example, are made richer by his inclusion of painterly human and natural forms. The human subjects he paints, on the other hand, inhabit a convincingly detailed back ground. Robert enjoys the research needed to accurately capture the detail as well as the mood and atmosphere of his subjects. Recent projects include a commission by Smithsonian Magazine to illustrate the human character and the atmosphere of a particular small town in France. Robert studies music and is a performer in local San Francisco productions. This helped him create illustrations used for the promotion of Broadway shows such as “Showboat.” He completes several book covers and children’s books as well as many other com- missions each year. Constant studies and sketchbooks fill his free time. Robert was originally trained as an architect in North Carolina and at Berkeley. He completed further study in art in Austria as a Fulbright scholar and then in New York and San Francisco. He recently designed and constructed a new home for his family near San Francisco and is very active in the preservation of historic art and architecture. He loves his work. He and his wife Alice have two children. robertgsteele.com
