Graphic novel illustrator

Our graphic novel illustrator Rob Davis has a new comic book out and it looks fantastic! The Motherless Oven is selling well and follows on from Rob’s impressive adaptation of Cervantes’ Don Quixote, also for the publisher SelfMadeHero. Rob is a stylish story-teller who uses the form of the comic to great effect. His drawing skills are exceptional and his figures and characters are alive with gesture and expression.

What makes a great illustrator?

The trick to being an illustrator

I used to puzzle over the work of successful illustrators and wonder what are the tricks that have made them so good? I finally saw the answer. No tricks! These artists have refined their drawing skills to such a high level that they make illustration work look easy. Their level of observation and ability to convey reality is simply fantastic. Whatever subject they draw and paint they turn it into a compelling illustration. Have a look at some of their samples and you’ll soon see the value they can add to your projects.

Hobbledown

Hobbledown, is a fantastic new adventure park and farm, which has opened this summer in Epsom. Our illustrator, Lyn Stone was chosen to help create the story and image of the site.

The park’s theme is based on a story written by Angela Hulber and illustrated by Lyn, who did the cover and over thirty-two pencil illustrations. Crucial to the project was the creation of the main characters and their homes and Lyn’s imagination and humour has proved invaluable to the Hobbledown team. Lyn also created a range of animal and character silhouettes with Adobe Illustrator. The silhouettes are part of the park’s main identity and feature with the logo, website and on site signage.

Lyn was recently invited to their grand opening and alongside the author signed over two hundred and fifty books on a very hot day! Between creating sketches in books and holding babies for the photographer, she had a great day!

Lyn’s highly detailed illustrations have been created using soft graphite pencils. She very much enjoy’s and thrives on projects that allow her to really use her imagination, creating worlds and creatures that compliment and enhance great stories.

It doesn’t end here for Lyn either, as there are plans for a further four or five books in all!

If you would like to see more samples of Lyn’s work on this project, visit the agency’s main site, by just clicking here!
