Rathke, Kathryn

Looking at one of Kathryn Rathke’s line-based illustrations can be a bit like working out a puzzle – was it created using one fluid and continuous line, or many? According to the Seattle-based artist she owes her drawing skills to family connections. Her grandmother taught her to draw and supplied her with books by Arthur Rackham, Maurice Sendak, and William Steig, while her father was president of an advertising agency and used to bring home reams of paper for her to practice on.

She has lots of other creative interests too. She learned to make leather masks in Italy, enjoys German experimental theatre, and sometimes throws parties where her friends must act out vignettes found in a 1912 children’s book called Entertainments for All the Year.

Kathryn did an MFA in Set Design at the University of Wisconsin but was always drawing on the side, sometimes accepting commissions from newspapers and magazines. Eventually she flipped things around and made her illustration work a full-time profession and set design became her hobby.

Kathryn does everything digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator using a Cintiq screen by Wacom.

If she’s doing portraiture work, she draws her subject many times over from different angles. This way she learns about the most important features of their face and can draw it in a way that makes it instantly recognisable.

The line is core to Kathryn’s style and her work is very fluid. Expressive and calligraphic, there’s a unique sense of gesture in her illustrations. She also uses crosshatching to develop surfaces in her images, using layers of lines of varying thickness to build up a texture.

George, Patrick

Peter Scott's (a.k.a PatrickGeorge) skills of illustration and design are largely concept-driven, clean, punchy and witty. He enjoys working on his own children's books (A drove of bullocks, A filth of starlings, Little Miss Muffet and other rhymes, and Opposites published by PatrickGeorge), but his style works equally well in a corporate and media context. PatrickGeorge’s previous clients include Toyota, GQ, Royal Mail, Houses of Parliament, Kent tourism and The Times. He has also produced a book of names which is a playful typographical treatment of 100 boys and 100 girls names (What's in a name?)

Baker, Andrew

Andrew Baker is a successful practicing illustrator, with a strong reputation in editorial illustration and poster design. He won a Gold Award for Editorial illustrator from the Association of Illustrators in 2003, and his work has been featured in the Design, New Media and Editorial sections of the AOI Images Annual and in the D&AD annual. His work is seen in most serious newspapers and magazines, from The Guardian to New Scientist, and in on-line environments, shop windows and on posters and book covers. He is primarily concerned with using images for storytelling or conveying messages. Drawing, colour, a love for ephemera and an eye for retro design inform his work. Projects are started with drawing and completed using illustrator and Photoshop in a distinctive way. Much of his work is designed to be seen in sequential form, for example sequences of images for The Economist or the BBC web-site, but he remains passionate about the power of the single key image. Andrew Baker is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and teaches part-time on the illustration course at Middlesex University. He recently curated the SHED exhibition and contributed to Steady Gigs, The Charity Shop Compendium and Doodlearth. Recent clients include: BBH, The Guardian, The Times, Barclays Bank, The Economist, The Radio Times, Diageo, The Spinvox, Harvard Business Review, The Mail on Sunday magazine, Dorling Kindersley, Lloyds, Readers Digest books, The Telegraph, Esterson Associates, Kings College.
