    Deanna Halsall

    Deanna creates some really interesting editorial illustrations in a retro style that’s all her own. Her work is often very clever, sending a clear message that’s easy to understand. The illustrated map she created for Beefeater Gin stands out as a really beautiful piece of work and there is a lot of strong illustration to be found on Deanna’s website.

    “Her work stems from a love of nature, birds, beards, pens, nice hair, nostalgia, super mario, screen prints, the colour yellow and collecting old stuff usually found in her parents’ attic.”

    Deanna’s clients include NBC America, Umbro and The Eden Project. She is currently based in the UK.

    We have a real gem of an illustrator today (as of course we do every day)! Kate Baylay creates some of the loveliest book covers I’ve seen in a long time. Her blog is a real treasure-trove, with inner workings, sketches and more. Recently, she has even created some puppets out of wood, clay and other materials. Aside from her excellent book jackets, she also is interested in designing illustrated novels and children’s books. I’m sure her talents will keep her busy; we predict a long and successful career for Kate Baylay.
