The imagined places of Pierre Ferrero can be unnerving, but are ultimately beautiful and filled with mystery. All the grizzly, nighttime creatures are etched in delicate pencils and inks, and portrayed with a warming palette of pink and purple skies.
Malin Rosenqvist creates unique textures in her work, softening and adding a delicate feel to her otherwise bold forms.
Using marks that fall somewhere between dots and short, fine hatching, Malin adds a beautiful and distinct quality to her illustrations.
Portraits by¬†Cristina Polop are characterised by remarkably drawn details, luscious colours, and a creative mixture of drawing methods.
If the level of technical skill and realism achieved in Cristina’s work wasn’t enough, her editing and addition of mixed media make her images distinctly original.
Mouni Feddag’s work enters the room as a stylistic whirlwind of colourful pencil marks and patterns. The energetic scribbles, scrawls and dashes occupy every available corner, filling them with life and enjoyment.
We really like the sharp shapes and cut-out feel in Monge Quentin’s figurative illustrations. A clever use of mixed media keep the characters looking fresh, often using suitably simple forms and expressive shades and dashes.

David Sparshott’s pencil illustrations are full of detail and¬†thick areas of rich shading. Close observation, use of colour and shading makes his work bold even when working with soft pencils.
David manages to get a lot out of the materials he uses, layering the pencils in his images to create depth and contrast. We like the variety of tones he is able to achieve, especially in illustrations with lots of detail too.
Thick swathes of pencil shading fill Alessandra De Cristofaro’s work with rich colour. Her well-crafted, interesting scenes perfectly compliment the humorous characters she puts in them
We really enjoy Alessandra’s character designs and her playfulness with the narratives she creates. But as great¬†as the focus of her illustrations are, we also get pulled into the backgrounds in her work.
