There’s a beautiful tenderness that Aimee Bee Brooks infuses into her illustrations. Her delicate pencil drawings¬†are light and emotive, and almost carry a¬†sense of warming nostalgia like an old, cherished photograph.
William Davey’s work is a collected scattering of intense, energetic marks, and blocks of texture and bright colours. We dive into a bunch of his sketchbooks and see how his observations feed his final images.
We take a peek into the pages of some of Gosia Herba’s wonderful sketchbooks. She has an abstract, slightly cubist figurative style and plays with various ways to create marks on the page.
Antwerp, Belgium-based illustrator Charlotte Dumortier creates vivid characters that dance around and jump off the page. Her imaginative ghouls and beasts fill playful comics, prints, and particular fun sketchbooks.

Josh Holinaty’s art¬†has¬†bundles of grit in every part of his illustrations, even down to the smallest details. He talks to us about satisfying the need to get hands on with his materials as we look at how this results in the weight and depth in his work.
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.
We really enjoy taking a peek through the sketchbooks of Gerard Armengol for their randomness and eccentricity. They give us an insight into a very spontaneous collection of thoughts and finds. Collaged imagery accompany actual found objects and colourful, and pretty cheeky, pencil drawings.
