I also work as a freelance rep for the Illustrators' Agency, Arena but just for six of the main UK children's book publishing clients.
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
I strongly recommend that you watch the first episode of the new BBC drama tonight (17th May 2015). This is a seven-part serialisation of the book by Susannah Clarke and it promises to be a classic. Jim Kay produced some concept work for it (for Feel Films), as above, and we plan to offer either prints of some of his images or original sketches and paintings. Let me know if you'd be interested.

More here. Vinculus outside his booth, and some of Jim's ideas for it.
Olivia and Jim for Bratislava
Many congratulations to Olivia Lomenech Gill and Jim Kay as well as to the other thirteen British children's book illustrators nominated for the 2015 Bratislava Biennale. Piet Grobler has highlighted them in The Guardian.

The image above is by Olivia, from Where My Wellies Take Me by Clare and Michael Morpurgo. Jim is nominated for his illustrations for A Monster Calls, the profoundly-moving book by Patrick Ness which continues in its much-deserved initial success. Prints of this particular image are available here.
An original from Mass
We've put some new John Harris originals for sale on the website - and some not so new. This one was produced in the 1970's in the collection of work for MASS. We thought they were really different then - and they still are.
The Bonniest Companie
Olivia Lomenech Gill has illustrated the cover of a book of poetry by Kathleen Jamie for Picador. Living and working on the Scottish borders, this subject matter and the mood came very naturally to her.
Grahame Baker Smith and Oscar Wilde
Grahame's work is going to form part of an exhibition at the British Academy during Literature Week, 11-17th May 2015. The illustrations above, The Young King and The Happy Prince, were produced for the Folio Society's edition of The Selfish Giant and Other Stories. See more about the exhibition here.

Grahame says: "In my imagination I created them as if Wilde were alive and would be looking at them, correcting proofs and commenting, so I tried to do something that Wilde would (hopefully) approve of. I also thought it might be fun to put Wilde himself into a couple of the illustrations. For me the story of The Happy Prince is Wilde’s portrait of his own character.”

More of Grahame's illustration here.
Gordon Crabb covers for Jan de Lima
Gordon has produced some very stylish covers for Jan de Lima's novels for Ace Books.
Jim Burns interview at Eastercon
Jim was interviewed by Francesca Tristan Barbini at the recent Eastercon so you can hear him talk about his career, beginning with the Game of Thrones covers then bringing you right up to date with his current work.
