Ashworth, Jonathan

Jonathan Ashworth is a graduate from Edinburgh College of Art and the RCA. He has always been interested in drawing, in making careful observations of the world as well as imagined scenarios drawn from the minds eye. His imagery seeks to reflect his all encompassing passion for life; capturing the poignancy of human interaction, the beauty of the natural landscape as well as that of the city. Jonathan pays homage to the great printmakers of the past to produce deceptively simple designs that hold resonance for life in the 21st century.

Serafin, Kasia

Originally from the south of Poland, Kasia travelled to Scotland to complete a degree in Visual Communication and Illustration at Gray’s School of Art. Kasia’s passion for illustration is reflected in her one-of-a-kind designs and playful solutions. She has a fully formed distinctive style and enjoys working with a limited colour palette, but it doesn’t stop her from constantly pushing her illustrations further into new territory. She’s the winner of a D&AD New Blood Pencil award for her John Lewis project - the trophy sits proudly on her desk.

Marta currently resides in France sharing her studio with a group of friends and finding her inspiration in nature, science and everyday life.

Marta's work is a mix of plants and organic life set against straight lines, right angles and sharp geometric shapes where intense, succulent colours are used to bring a lively sense of character to her work. The images she produces are filled with mountain landscapes, deep forests inhabited by animals and fantastic creatures walking under sparkling skies.

Graziano, Nazario

Nazario is an Italian freelance Illustrator, Graphic Designer and dad. His world is romantic, ironic, dreamy, with good background music. Something like… “a dive in the past with gore-tex lifesaver”. He takes inspiration from old books, illustrations for kids, sky, snow, rain and rainbows, his little princess Bianca, his wife, his cats, music, old-school skateboards, traditional tattoos, 80′s memories, 50′s sci-fi movies, typography and so much more that happens day by day in his life…

Harris, Philip

Philip became inspired by art as a child studying his grandfather's old sketchbooks around his home. During university he inherited his grandfather's vast collection of dip pens and began experimenting with dip pen and ink. Becoming fascinated by the style, he still uses the same nibs today as well as devolving to use other mediums such as rotring pens and Photoshop to create his images.

Mulvanny, Sara

Sara Mulvanny grew up with a paint brush in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. After studying Illustration at Kingston, Sara moved back to her North Hampshire studio which she shares with her cat, Simba. Whilst this cheeky feline tries to walk across Sara's keyboard or balances precariously on stacked sketchbooks, Sara can be found creating her stylised pen and ink drawings, which she digitally transforms with texture and colour. Inspired by the age of Art Deco illustration and muted colour palettes, her charming illustrative style has captured the attention of many clients including Harrods, Sainsbury’s Magazine and Harper Collins.

Garnier, Virginie

Virginie Garnier is a french illustrator who graduated from L’ école des Beaux Arts in France and studied Photography, and then Fashion at the Royal Academy of Antwerpen, Belgium.

She is currently living and working in Berlin.

Kazdailyte, Egle

Professionally trained as an architect it is no surprise that Egle has since moved on to the colourful world illustration….in fact we can attest to that, as when we met, she was a wave of complimentary hues! Over the last ten years she has created illustrations and visual language for multiple companies from well established names like The Guardian to successful startups such as Lyst. Over the years she has developed a wide range of styles and techniques. Having travelled extensively; Singapore, Shanghai, Mumbai, New York, London and Copenhagen has allowed her to develop both a deep understanding of visual styles and a wide cultural language when working with international clients all over the world. She translates ideas into shapes and colours.

Zafra, Marta

Born in Jaén, Spain, Marta studied Fine Art in Granada, Andalusia and studied an MA in illustration, now her work wins recognition worldwide. Whether it be botanical illustrations or the portrayal of animals and people, her illustrations exhibit a careful solid base in draughtsmanship combined acutely with a subtle intuition for colour, mixed both by hand and digitally.

Lovell, Andy

Andy’s work as an illustrator and printmaker is informed by making drawings and paintings from life which are then revisited through the medium of print. The original drawings are not an end in themselves but rather aim to catch the essence of a place in a form that can be translated to print back in the studio. He is drawn to the immediacy that the screen-print and monotype processes both allow and encourage and which result in a gestural and often graphic interpretation of these initial sketches and paintings done on location that capture a real sense of mood and place.

Andy’s printmaking is represented through galleries across the UK whist, as an illustrator he has worked on a wide range of commercial commissions, across the publishing, editorial, advertising and design sectors.

Clients include American Express, ABTA, Natwest bank, Singapore Airlines, Guardian Media Group, Bowmore Whisky, Hoopers, British Gas, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Saturday Times, The Sunday Times, The Times, The Guardian, Conde Naste, Time Inc., You Magazine, The Evening Standard, Time Out Magazine, IPC Media, National Magazines, Random House, Harper Collins, Faber & Faber, Friends of the Earth, Decca, EMI Sinead O’Connor & Shane McGowan - ‘Haunted’ Video Backdrop.

McKenna, Josh

Born in a provincial British seaside town Josh McKenna is now based in London. Josh’s work is minimally designed but full of voluptuously, curved characters, his work focuses less on the details and more on asymmetric shapes in pleasing compositions using a soft west coast inspired palette. Tan lines and bodacious booties are rife in his portfolio but this fun, cheeky approach gives Josh’s stylised worlds personality.

McKenna’s creative process involves sketching ideas on iPad and Pencil, chopping and changing compositions and then moving to a computer to create vector artwork, adding textures and applying a carefully considered colour palette.

Josh McKenna graduated Falmouth University in 2014 and now works in editorial, advertising, shop windows and emojis on phones.

Battuz, Christine

Christine Battuz was born in France and currently residing in Bromont, Quebec, Canada. She started drawing at 3 when she was able to hold a pen. Growing up, Christine was inspired by her mother’s collection of painting all over her house. She studied in Italy and received her Masters of Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts of Perugia. After graduating, she was uncertain as to what to do with her diploma. A good friend who is a designer predicted and convinced her that she was an illustrator. Interestingly enough, this wonderful friend later turned out to become her husband. She has illustrated over sixty children books, published in North America, Korea and Europe. Her work appears in educational books, magazines, toys and toys packaging. She teaches art to adults and children of all ages. When not illustrating, she loves trail running and skiing with her husband and son.

Hector published his first illustration in Argentina at age 19. His work has appeared in advertising campaigns, magazines, newspapers and textbooks in several countries including Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Mexico. In 2002, Hector decided to pursue the American market and during his first visit to NY, he landed a series of books for Scholastic. While not illustrating, Hector enjoys playing soccer and perfecting his tango.

Ceolin, Andre

André Ceolin is a self-taught illustrator from Brazil He started his first attempt at sketching around the age of four when his father brought home some reams of paper from work. It was in that moment that he fell in love with painting and drawing. André initially got a degree in pharmacy at UNIMEP. Though he worked in this field for several years, his artistic passion was too strong to ignore. As a young father, he was surrounded by beautiful children’s books and was always drawn to the spontaneity of the imagery. He then decided to switch gears and studied at School of Visual Arts in NYC, Melies, and Escola Panamericana de Artes to develop a signature look and learned new illustration techniques. He illustrated his first book “Um Dia na Vida de Micaela” de Cauê by Steinberg Milano, published by Editora Roda & Cia in 2009. Ever since, he has illustrated over 20 books by great publishers in Brazil such as Roda & Cia, Saber e Ler, SM, Moderna, FTD, Editora do Brasil, Editora Abril. He loves working with books targeting juvenile readers from the very young age to middle-grade and young adult. When not illustrating, he creates toys and small sculptures for his son. He also enjoys bicycling, playing his guitar, and, singing.

Diaz, Maine

Born in La Plata, Argentina, Maine Diaz, grew up drawing and painting. She was often seen drawing with her pencils or crayons in deep concentration. Cartoons captured her imagination early on and realized immediately that she wants to be an animator when she grows up. Her mother, a biochemist and grandfather were truly flabbergasted upon hearing her declaration. At the age of 16 she took a workshop and start animating, working in films like Patoruzito, El Arca (Patagonik, Argentina), Gizaku and Nocturna (Filmax, Spain). Simultaneously, she enrolled in Audiovisual Communication at Universidad DeLa Plata (UNLP). Soon after, she also started illustrating for children’s story books and educational books. In 2002 with Crimsomnia Studio, she was a finalist at Ford’s “Saldras mas” publicity contest, with “Habitos noctunos” short.

Currently, Maine lives in a tiny green house where she spends time with her two cats, Chula and Lola. She loves tending her garden while Chula eats all the plants and Lola jumps and climbs the trees. Maine prefers to be barefoot while painting and singing in her studio. She is a pretty good cook and sweated several years near the oven and many pans. When not illustrating, she also enjoys swimming, writing, taking photos.

Flores, Jose Emroca

Jose Emroca Flores grew up in a humble family of four from Northern Nevada where he spent much of his youth actively outdoors skateboarding, playing baseball, and snowboarding. He has always been creative and imaginative on paper and outdoors. Building makeshift skate ramps from scrapwood was the norm in his childhood. He’d round up the kids from the cul-de-sac and they’d skate late into the evenings. He moved to California after high school to play baseball and pursue his art. Emroca later attended the Academy of Art in San Francisco where he learned to develop the ability to materialize his imagination while advancing his technique as a visual artist. On his downtime from school, he’d still skateboard and snowboard and started to surf in the sharky cold San Francisco waters. It was then when he stumbled upon his forever two loves of his life: his new found passion for the ocean and his beautiful wife. When he graduated from the Academy of Art, he immediately went to work as a visual development artist in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles. In the course of his work on films, games, animation, books, and advertising, his original oil paintings were shown in galleries across the U.S.

Lucas, Margeaux

Margeaux Lucas was born on Halloween, so she loves spooky things like black cats, full moons, and very starry nights. She began drawing constantly from age four, amazing her friends with pictures of people and animals, especially horses, which were her favorite. Her love of picture books came from the many hours she spent before bedtime reading from the collection at her grandmother's house. As a teenager she loved fashion, but found that she was better at drawing than sewing. She studied Graphic Design in school, but is largely self-taught as an illustrator. Margeaux loves to travel, and three of her favorite cities are Paris, London and New York, her current home. Margeaux's work reflects her love of fashion, nature, and the many shapes, sizes and colors that people come in, plus the constant exuberance of children.

Holmes, Stuart

Londoner Stuart Holmes is now based in Australia’s 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. He’s 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 Beedie’s 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.

Baker, Alex

Alexandra Baker grew up fascinated by both science and drawing, and like so many other medical illustrators when she first heard about the field it was a eureka moment for her. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, today she’s a leading medical illustrator, working for an array of book publishers and magazines, illuminating some the latest discoveries in medical science.

Texture and atmosphere are important elements in her work. She recalls the day when her father – who worked with electron microscopes – first showed her scans of the surface of a leaf and the proboscis of a butterfly. Today she uses various kinds of nature photography as sources of inspiration. Underwater images help her create the right mood when depicting the human body from the inside, and pictures taken in caves can help with bodily cavities. The branches of trees are reminiscent of arteries, and nature’s textures and patterns provide endless fascination for an artist who is dedicated to getting the details right.

She’s also inspired by the artists Stephen Gilbert and Frank Armitage, both of whom are medical illustrators. Outside of her art, she loves to run and took up training five years back. Since then she’s completed seven marathons and more than 20 half-marathons. A keen reader, she says her house is like a secondhand bookshop.

Billy, Butcher

Butcher Billy is a Brazilian illustrator with a fresh approach, who loves to slice up ideas and imagery in popular culture and reassemble them in unique ways. Juxtaposing everything from Wonder Woman and the Watchmen to Morrissey and Breaking Bad, his work is ironic, humorous and very postmodern. His subtle questioning of pop culture using pop art as his medium is a juxtaposition in itself, yet in their own unique way all his images seem to make sense.

In addition to his illustration work, Billy is a creative director in a digital agency. He lived in the UK for a while, and has travelled widely. With seemingly endless influences at his disposal – including Banksy, Steve Ditko, Shigeru Miyamoto, Malcolm McLaren and Andy Warhol - Butcher Billy never runs out of moods and concepts to explore.

“I like to create freely and then realise bits of an artwork are influenced by the mood of a movie by Tim Burton, the brushstrokes of a piece by Salvador Dali, with a soundtrack from an early album by David Bowie,” he says.

Cooper, Dena

Soft and skilfully painted, Dena Cooper’s fashion illustrations also offer moments of striking contrast and intensity. Her lifelike models look as they could walk right off the page and join in with your conversation.

With a background in fashion design, Dena is now a leading New York illustrator with a growing list of industry clients. Transplanted into Brooklyn from Fredricksburg, Virginia, she loves New York and Fashion Week in particular. “I’m very influenced by street style that I see around the city, specifically the effortless chic that so many New Yorkers exude walking down the street.”

Further inspiration comes from designers like Marchesa, Dior, Delpozo, and Viktor & Rolf, but Dena also loves reading, running, a good cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Smith, Henry

The award-winning cartoonist and illustrator Henry Smith is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. He’s an artist who was captivated by cartoons at an early age and never grew out of them. Now, they’re his career and he’s made a name for himself designing unique characters that are full of humour.

“A great character can be designed if you pay attention to the silhouette. Is it something we've seen before? I like to use geometric shapes in fun ways to see if I can get more interesting characters, and making my characters as weird as possible, while still being cute and approachable,” he says.

There’s certainly a 90s vibe in his inspiration cabinet – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Powerpuff Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants are to be found there, along with classic video games like Pokemon Blue and Super Smash Bros. With a graphic design background, he’s also influenced by mid-century modernism. Henry is a keen volleyball player, listens to Country, Rock and Rap, and enjoys the company of his wife and their two sassy dogs.

Viltovskaia, Elena

Rollet, Claire

Born in France, Claire Rollet spent over 20 years in London and has recently relocated to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. London will always hold a very special place in her heart but for now she is loving cycling around discovering the Dutch capital. In her spare time she loves sewing; each garment she sees as a mathematical problem waiting to be solved.

Music accompanies Claire in her work and she has daytime and night-time playlists. Todd Terje, Kiki Gyan, Mashrou' Leila and Cosima are out when the sun’s up, and at night she listens to the likes of Hercules Love Affair, Gotye and Baloji.

Hodges, Lee

Lee Hodges comes from deepest, darkest Kernowfornia – also known as Cornwall. The sea and coastline have always been a part of his life, and today he lives on the foothills of Dartmoor, in Devon. In addition to his vibrant, mixed media illustration work, Lee is a DJ and runs club arts nights in the Southwest of England.

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 artists’ 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.

Eason, Rohan

London based Illustrator Rohan Eason works predominantly in pen and ink. He is best known for his stark black and white imagery, which plays heavily on the roles of composition and view point, and the balance between intricate detail and dark or light space. His work has become widely used in book illustration and more recently in advertising, where his uniquely hand crafted style stands apart from the more typically used digital art forms.

Although art has run very clearly through his family and his childhood, it was only after leaving university and a painting degree that he decided to pursue illustration as his preferred discipline. Rohan loved the work of Aubrey Beardsley and Arthur Rackham as a boy, and this devotion to and pursuit of the beautifully hand drawn line followed him into adulthood. His portfolio now bursts with the magical and fantastical scenes from dreams to nightmares, from real life to imagined creations, but all with the same single grounding fact, that of beauty and balance.

Billie J

Billie Jean is a he and not a she. He lives and works in Leytonstone in East London - the birth place of Alfred Hitchcock and David Beckham. He enjoys climbing trees, idling the hours away in second-hand bookshops, drinking 'Blue Vanilla' flavoured Slush Puppies, making chocolate rice crispy cup cakes, knitting tea cosies and oh yes, drawing with great skill.

Taylor, Nadia

Nadia Taylor is a designer and printmaker based in London. Her colourful prints are filled with bold shapes and striking pattern. She loves screen-printing and the whole process informs her work – from the use of a limited colour palette to the incorporation of textures and dark outlines. Her work projects range from large-scale hand-painted murals, packaing, book covers, greeting cards, gift wrap, menus and farm signs with a list of clients including Ikea, Target, Mr Kipling, and Zizzi Restaurants.

Field, Peter James

Peter has a degree in world art history and anthropology, specializing in Japanese culture, and taught for three years at state schools in the mountains of rural Japan. His intricate hand-made work focuses on the human figure, and particularly the face. His work is tender, playful and at times surreal. A fascination with the interplay of figurative imagery and abstraction has excited a recent interest in combining stylized subject matter with surface pattern.

Barber, Isobel

Isobel is a paper engineer and illustrator, living and working in the beautiful county of Dorset. Isobel graduated from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2012 with a degree in Textile design, where she specialised in creating illustrative patterns and print designs using a cut paper technique. Isobel continues to use this method to create detailed work and miniature sets, using layers of card and cut paper. Isobel has worked with a number of clients in fields such as advertising, editorial, branding, live illustration events and most recently film. Clients include The National Trust, Tesco, Lands' End, Harveys Furniture, Benson for Beds & Wilderness Festival. When not wielding a pair of scissors or a scalpel, some of her other pastimes include baking, prising scraps of stray paper from the jaws of her miniature schnauzer Otto, running along the Dorset coast, flowers and photographing colourful things.

Durrant, Jessica

Nature and beauty are two themes that Jessica Durrant is passionate about, and they really shine through in the illustrations she crafts for leading fashion labels, top magazines and global brands. Strikingly posed models are embellished with perfectly rendered floral dresses and feathered collars, while hints of wintry trees and wide open landscapes lurk in the details generating atmosphere and intrigue for the viewer.

For Jessica, each artwork is an extension of herself, and she lives and breathes to paint and draw. Even as a young artist she studied fabrics, patterns and garments, and knew that her future lay in fashion illustration. At the same time she developed a love of landscape painting, and has developed a style through which both these creative passions can thrive.

With experience in museum and gallery sector, Jessica opened her Etsy shop in 2009 and soon was not only making art to sell online but was being commissioned by major chains such as Target. As her career has taken off, she has continued with her personal work, experimenting with new approaches. Some of her inspirations include Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keefe. “I love badass women artists, who really blazed trails,” she says.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Jessica has lived in eight states, and loves travelling in the US and abroad.

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. It’s colourful and fun, welcoming and sometimes a little bit zany. Maybe that’s 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. It’s become the moniker he works under as an illustrator.

Dan’s 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.

Kerr, Sam

Sam Kerr approaches his work with an equal amount of thought placed on the drawing style and concept. “For me, the two are inseparable and as important as each other. To get the best out of an idea, you have to match it to the right medium.”

Although most ventures into different ways of working have come about through a basic need for variety, some were born out of necessity. In 2011, Sam Kerr spent six months bedridden as a result of back problems, so in order to keep up his drawing, learnt to work entirely on his iPhone.

As of December 2011, Sam Kerr returned to his studio with a new back and continues to work on his collaborative projects with illustration collective Lie-ins and Tigers, and new joint venture Interrobang with friend Russell Weekes.

His clients include… Channel 4, Coca-Cola, Waitrose, Phones 4U, Gillette, Paul Smith, Planet Of The Grapes, Marwood ties, TIME Magazine, GQ, FHM, Red Bulletin, Popshot, LE GUN, The Guardian, and The Independent.

Horvath, Peter

Peter Horvath, born of Hungarian descent into a lineage of photographers, began taking pictures at age 6. After spending his formative years inhaling darkroom fumes, he worked as a stills photographer until he discovered computers in 1995 when a friend gave him a Macintosh Plus. Shortly thereafter, he happened across the work of Dadaists John Heartfield and Hannah Hoch, whose work exposed him to the world of photo-montage. He has since produced digital collage works exploring narrative, abstraction, and the hypnagogic, and continues to push the boundaries of convention, displacing the familiar and nostalgic with unique, surreal touches. Peter’s ability to master bold compositions that convey complex concepts is what makes his work stand out. His impactful images make him a natural choice for the nuances of editorial work, and the call-to-action needs of advertising. His work is featured in the newly published book from Die Gestalten, "Illusive - Contemporary Illustration", as well as an upcoming book on collage.

Previous commercial clients include The Economist's Intelligent Life Magazine, AMEX, The Washington Post, The Smithsonian Magazine, Billboard Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, Wired Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, The Village Voice, Variety, Scientific American Mind Magazine, New York Times, The L.A. Times and L.A Weekly among others.

Peter has been awarded numerous grants from The Canada Council for the Arts for his new media work, and is the recipient of commissions from Rhizome.org at The New Museum, NYC (2005) and Turbulence.org New Radio and Performing Arts, Boston (2004). He has exhibited in museums and galleries across the globe including the Whitney Museum Of American Art‘s Artport (NYC), Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo (Mexico City), the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec (Quebec City, Canada) and FILE Electronic Language International Festival (Sao Paulo, Brazil).

Loeffler, Max

Max was born in rural Germany in 1989 and started out illustrating extensive album artworks for punk and metal bands after doing his homework. After graduating from the Graphic Design department at Hochschule Darmstadt in 2017, he began working as a freelancer with renowned clients like The New Yorker, The New York Times, Adidas and Google. He still enjoys creating artwork for bands.

Influenced by the classic surrealists as well as retro science-fiction book covers, he likes to look below the surface of one-to-one visual translations, adding meaning and room for inference by wrapping his illustrations in the dense atmosphere of a surreal and melancholic parallel universe. His urge is to translate and decipher what can only be felt, not directly seen, and to amplify this visually, particularly in his personal work.

Max has worked with clients such as: The New Yorker , The New York Times , Google, GLOBE Brand, Future Islands, Bloomberg Businessweek, Folio Society, Atreyu, GQ Magazine, WirtschaftsWoche, DIE ZEIT, Adidas, Bandcamp, Medium, Cicero, The Economist, Variety, Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, and The Shrine.
