Anne Laval could be one of the characters we see in her incredibly rich and detailed illustrations, wandering through masses of foliage, making notes and drawing inspiration. She tells us how she uses her love of nature to inform her work.
Jordan Carter works with a creative combination of realistic pencil drawings and bold, graphic shapes. He pairs the two together to make images that are delicate yet punchy.
It would be fair to say that most illustrators fall into either the realistic or more stylised categories. So seeing someone that works in a way that has them sitting comfortably in both is intriguing and immediately draws you in.
Liam Barrett’s work is always unexpected and enjoyably playful. Whether he’s putting his characters in prints or constructing them in 3D, he does it with a refreshing use of his materials and his own interesting take on form.
Beautiful, delicate layers are built on top of more layers of elegant washes and the intimate drawing style of Babeth Lafon in her fashion illustrations. She talks with us in depth about the process she goes through to create her work.

The worn gradients of photocopied blocks of black and the fine grains seen up close in paper are just some of the wonderful textures we enjoy in the work of Catarina Sobral.
