Ten Best New Illustrators

| No Comments

The UK's Best New Illustrators were revealed today by Children's Laureate Michael Rosen at the Children's Book Fair in Bologna.

The final ten represent the best rising talent in the field of illustration today, who demonstrate remarkable creative flair, artistic skill and boundless imagination in their work.

The UK's ten Best New Illustrators are:

Alexis Deacon
Polly Dunbar
Lisa Evans
Emily Gravett
Mini Grey
Oliver Jeffers
David Lucas
Catherine Rayner
Joel Stewart
Vicky White

David Roberts and Sam Lloyd were highly commended.

Shirley Hughes comments:
"The varied talents of these ten new illustrators represent the marvellous vitality of our profession. In an era in which we are bombarded by moving electronic imagery, looking at picture books is not only a vital part of learning to read but offers a lifelong pleasure in itself."

An exhibition of works by the ten Best New Illustrators will run at the Illustration Cupboard, Piccadilly, London from 17 April - 3 May.
