Rachelle loves nothing better than to lock herself away in the studio, get her pencils out and spend hours drawing brilliant characters for children’s books. When she’s not drawing she’s busy reading thorough favourite childhood stories, or day-dreaming about creating new ones. An obsessive Wizard of Oz fan, given any opportunity she can often be spotted wearing ruby slippers, preferably whilst having a kitchen disco. A former primary school teacher, Rachelle is now ‘living the dream’ as an illustrator represented by Plum Pudding Illustration Agency.
Rachelle lives in Lancashire with her husband Phil and children Natalie, Joel, Aidan and Sasha.

Ken Iizuka is an illustrator going between Brighton and Tokyo. He could describe his style as being simple yet considered in terms of composition with the use of a limited palette. This comes from a heavier influence of printmaking techniques and an interest in typography.
In 2013, Ken started Black Cat Press to run workshops to the public and share his passion for printmaking.
His clients include Art Asia, SoCo Music projects and Wired Online.
Bett Norris experiments with shape, colour and line to produce bespoke illustration, pattern design, portraiture and typography. She takes inspiration from packaging, travel posters and classic design and create unique work by fusing traditional drawing techniques with digital technology.
Based in the lively British city of Bristol, Bett has been drawing most of her life and was always in trouble at school for doodling during lessons. Eventually, she found a place where this was encouraged and was awarded a degree in illustration. Since then I have been lucky enough to work on a variety of exciting projects including editorial work, social media campaigns, exhibitions and most recently an animation for The School of Life.
