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.

Peter Scott

Peter Scott and his amazing natural history illustrations has been adorning books for many years. Over thirty of his solo books have been published and he has collaborated on a similar amount. His clients include major publishing houses like Usborne Books, Harper Collins, Time Life, Random House, Athena, Virgin, Disney, BBC, RSPB, Dorling Kindersley, and many other companies. His work has also been used in advertising and television. A very busy man indeed!

Peter Scott has recently completed several books for innovative publishers Templar, including two large format hardbacks, each with twenty two large watercolour paintings and pencil drawings.

Peter was commissioned last year by QED to illustrate four books for a new series called Animal Diaries. Written by Steve Parker they portray the lives of young animals in a lively, fun style. He mixes engaging expressions with realism to great effect, bringing out the character and charm of the animals and the excitement of their adventures. The results are great fun and fantastic!

This lengthy project needed disciplined organisation to deliver the work smoothly and on time. Peter had no problem providing QED with the professional efficiency of a talented and very experienced illustrator. The success of the series has led to the commissioning of another four books, which is wonderful news! Keep it up, Peter!
