  1. Really Cheap and Really Useful Books for Illustrators

    We are going to do something a little different for today’s post. I recently picked up a copy of The Anatomy of Costume from Amazon for the enthralling price of 1 pence. A perfectly good book, in a perfectly acceptable condition. This got me thinking, how great it would if there were a whole list of useful art books that were being sold for a penny? I did a little Google-fu to see what was out there already, after not finding anything I decided to make my own list and share it with you, my fellow Loungers.

  2. Andrea Femerstrand aka Noukah

    Swedish illustrator Andrea Femerstrand works in the games industry and freelances in her spare time. Her digital painting skills and visual style are well suited to story books and concept art; she’s also a talented character designer. You can see a lot of her step-by-step process on her Behance page, which is very insightful.

  3. Emilia Dziubak

    There is lovely warmth to Emilia Dziubak’s illustrations. Her children’s books are beautiful, and she’s even created a children’s cook book! I am totally smitten by her work and am sure many of you will be too. I had such a tough time picking some of my favourite illustrations to share with you; I highly recommend visiting her blog or Behance page.

  4. Aki Fukuoka

    Aki Fukuoka is a freelance illustrator living in New Zealand. Aki has illustrated over 60 children’s books including some award winning and best selling series such as “Billie B Brown” and “Lily the Littlest Angel”. Outside her innocent children’s picture books Aki works on more edgy and darker illustrations and paintings for her commission pieces and gallery shows. You can check out her Facebook fan page where she does regular updates and give-aways. Alternatively, check out her website or blog.

  5. Adam Rex

    Adam Rex is from Phoenix, Arizona and now lives in Tuscon. He studied at the University of Arizona, where he received his BFA Qualification. He has since gone on to write and illustrate some excellent children’s books such as ‘Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich’, a collection of stories about monsters.

  6. Anca Sandu

    Anca Sandu is a Romanian illustrator with several styles and skill sets. Firstly, she has a good eye for typography; you can see lovely experimental work on her website. She is also a keen fashion illustrator, but probably her best strength is children’s book illustration. Her first book was published by Random House and is titled ‘Churchill’s Tale of Tails’.

  7. Jeremy Holmes

    A while back I bought a children’s book illustrated by Jeremy Holmes called ‘There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly’. It’s a great children’s book, full of textures and patterns and a clever ending (that I won’t spoil). So today, when I stumbled on Jeremy Holmes’ website I was delighted to find more of his work.
