William Grill

William Grill

William Grill is a new talent in the British illustration scene. He graduated with a BA (Hons) at University College Falmouth and published his debut book, Shackleton's Journey, with Flying Eye Books in 2014. Grill's main interest lies in narrative illustration where he uses the natural world to inspire his artwork. His use of coloured pencils, layers of shading and work in relief printmaking all contribute towards the evocative and atmospheric illustrations that are so unique to his style. In 2014 Grill won the AOI (Association of Illustration) Illustration Award for New Talent. His book was also a winner of The New York Times Best Illustrated Books, 2014. Grill is commissioned by international publications for his work, and also runs illustration workshops based on Ernest Shackleton's expedition. He is currently working on his newest title with Flying Eye Books, due out in 2016.

Shaun Tan

Shaun Tan

Shaun Tan was born in 1974 and grew up in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. In school he became known as the "good drawer", which partly compensated for always being the shortest kid in every class. He graduated from the University of WA in 1995 with joint honours in Fine Arts and English Literature, and currently works full time as a freelance artist and author in Melbourne. Books such as The Rabbits, The Red Tree, The Lost Thing and the acclaimed wordless novel The Arrival have been widely translated and enjoyed by readers of all ages. He has also worked as a theatre designer, and worked as a concept artist for the films ‘Horton Hears a Who' and Pixar's ‘WALL-E'. He is the winner of the 2011 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, the world's richest children's literature prize.
