Andrew Archer & Helen Friel / Shortlisted for AOI’s World Illustration Award 2019

We are delighted to announce two of Début Art’s represented artists have been shortlisted for the 2019 Association of Illustrators’ World Illustration Award. Andrew Archer’s ‘Edo Ball: The Art of Basketball’ (Gingko Press, 2018) and Helen Friel’s ‘Hoakes Island’ (Laurence King, 2018) are both shortlisted in the ‘Books’ category. Andrew Archer’s ‘Edo Ball: The Art of Basketball’ pays tribute to his twin passions: basketball and Japanese art. What began initially as two self-initiated pieces (‘The Rock’ & ‘The Ghost’) expanded into a stunning series of 45 original artworks. In May 2018, these were collected in a single volume, along with sketches and accompanying text offering the reader a detailed insight into Andrew’s process and inspiration. ’Hoakes Island’, created, designed and illustrated by Helen Friel and co-authored with Ian Friel, is Helen’s début interactive book for older readers. The title engages the reader in an ingenious and immersive narrative puzzle, unfolding inside...

Jennifer Dionisio / BBC3's 'Fleabag'

This month, BBC3 announced the arrival of the new series of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s much-celebrated show ‘Fleabag’ with a striking poster created by Jennifer Dionisio. Jennifer worked closely with the design team at BBC Creative to bring the quasi-saintly portrayal of the show’s titular character to life. The driving concept of the campaign was to highlight the redemption arc in the show’s narrative, whilst still reflecting the gritty humour that the show is revered for. This directive allowed Jennifer’s signature talent for creating elegant yet offbeat portrayals of female characters with an edge to shine. Her careful attention to detail meant that the poster’s homage to devotional stained-glass windows was modern, tasteful and still utterly deadpan in its delivery. To see more work from Jennifer Dionisio, you can visit her portfolio on Début Art’s website here: https://www.debutart.com/artist/jennifer-dionisio

Planet Rescue Kickstart / Patrick George

Planet Rescue, "An interactive children's picture book with 'magic' pages to inspire young eco-warriors". The new interactive children's picture book by illustrator Patrick George teaches young children about the importance of respecting and working towards a green planet in a fun and interactive way. The concept of Planet Rescue is that children reading the book can see the positive changes going on in the book through the act of turning the transparent pages to ‘magically transform the action underneath’. From leaving the car at home, to eating less meat. The book is available to back on Kickstarter until the 28th March 2019 here.
