1. Kirstie Edmunds


    Londoner Kirstie is a children’s book illustrator, with two books published to date (‘So You Wanna Be A Rock Star’ written by acclaimed author Audrey Vernick and ‘The Monster Who Lost His Mean’, written by Tiffany Strelitz Haber). Her influences include Charles Harper, M. Sasek, Mary Blair and the brilliant Eric Carle. Kirstie uses a lot of anthropomorphism in her work, nice simple shapes and marks and really warm colours to create a really friendly feel.
