Brand new from The Book Palace is the quarterly magazine Illustrators. A first of its kind for the UK in that it focuses purely on the work produced by commercial artists and illustrators of Europe. Following a very similar format to the already well established and popular USA based Illustration Magazine, it offers articles, interviews and looks behind the scenes at the creation of artwork from the world of pulp fiction, fashion, advertising and editorial. Most importantly the artwork is reproduced to a very high standard using high-resolution scans of the original artwork wherever possible. Issue One features an in-depth look at the hardboiled art of Denis McLoughlin, an interview with the Commando comic book illustrator Ian Kennedy, the 60’s chic of Angel Badia Camps…

8 Questions with Christopher King

Poster Collective

The following is a copy of the interview with me that featured on Poster Collective. 8 Questions is our feature where we ask designers, artists and illustrators the same 8 getting-to-know-you questions (sort of like the web series 7 Minutes In Heaven but without the closet and awkward kissing). We’ve chosen questions we think will elicit informative, character revealing and insightful answers, allowing readers to learn from and get to know these lovely people a little better. Christopher King (aka Wing’s Art & Design Studio) is a bloke we’ve had our eye on since we started Poster Collective. His comic book illustration style graces everything from roller derby flyers, to clothing and beyond. It’s quite refreshing to see him apply his skills to movie posters as this is…

This time last year I was lucky enough to see an original Norman Rockwell painting at the Society of Illustrators HQ in New York. I wasn’t expecting to see it hiding there behind the bar, but what better a treat (and better location) for an art appreciating bar fly? With many of Rockwell’s originals now destroyed (due to a fire at his studio) or in private collections, (George Lucas & Steven Spielberg famously own originals) I thought my chances of seeing anymore of his work first hand were slim. That turned out not to the case thanks to the Dulwich Picture Gallery (and not forgetting their sponsors) who are currently holding the exhibition ‘Norman Rockwell’s America …In England’ until March 27th. Featuring around 30 original pieces…

Photoshop Creative Interview

Photoshop Creative Interview with Wing's Art and Design Studio

Photoshop Creative Interview  – JULY 2010 How did you get started? I was lucky enough to find a job as an assistant designer for a local children’s book publisher near where I’ve lived in Cheddar straight after my A-levels, which in turn led to another job for a large publisher based in Bath as an illustrator/colourist that I held for nearly 5 years. This was where I really learnt how to use a Mac and the Adobe suite, which has served me well ever since. I’ve later gone on to work for newspapers laying out pages and designing packaging for toy companies until finally settling down as a freelancer. What are you influenced by? I have what might be described as a low-level addiction to art books…
