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.
