Emily Sutton . New illustrations and Exhibitions Autumn 2011

November 4, 2011

Another favourite Illustrator of mine is Emily Sutton, I’ve spoken about her work before here.

She has a wealth of new work thats just appeared and I’ve included some older pieces from on her site.

She’s influenced by such greats as Bawden and Ravilious and you can see their qualities above too.

I wondered if some of these were Emily’s homage to Ravilious’s series High Street and why not !

There are some amazing buildings around, which should be captured in this way before they’re

taken down in the name of ‘progress’.

More high street references and even some from Italy.

Emily has also been busy decorating book covers for Faber and Faber as shown on Print and Pattern,

and illustrating a book called Clara Button and the Magical Hat Day by Amy de la Haye.

Rich, beautiful, creative and sophisticated work, a credit to the British Illustrators working in the UK.

Godfrey and Watt are a gallery based in Harrogate and are having an exhibition of Emily Sutton and

Mark Hearld’s work from 12th til the 20th November. The gallery is open between 12 and 4pm, map and

details here.  Samples of the new work to expect from Mark below.

News just in from my lovely friend Bryony is that there’s a new exhibition of Emily’s work taking place

in Edinburgh at The Scottish Gallery between the 3rd and the 24th of December.

More info and a selection of her work here and below. Get over there and give yourself a treat !
