The awesome UK graphic arts festival Pick Me Up starts this Thursday at Somerset House in London and provides the perfect opportunity to finally share one of our big projects with you! One of the international rising stars of the graphics arts world specially selected by an industry panel to be featured in the Pick Me Up Selects artist showcase is Daniel Frost and we're thrilled to announce that he's working on a children's book with us!
The picture book takes place in his wonderful fictional town of Frostville--it's a charming place populated with colorful characters and humorous city life. We love Daniel's elongated figures, use of bold colors, expressive simplicity, and sense of the comical. It's been fun working with him on developing the book and we're super excited with how it's coming along. It won't be released until the fall and we'll be posting updates, but you can get sneak peaks of process and ideas on Daniel's blog and if you're in London, you can meet him and see his work-in-progress at Pick Me Up!
