Another alumni success story to relay – this time from illustrator Katy Riddell.
Katy graduated from the BA(Hons) Illustration with Animation course in 2015 and recently came into Manchester School of Art for some help with scanning some originals. We can’t show you any of this work yet as they are still waiting to be published, however we can give you some background on a great start to a career as a book illustrator.
Katy has been commissioned to provide new illustrations for the Pongwiffy series of hugely popular children’s books written by author Kaye Umansky. Originally published nearly thirty years ago, they are now being reissued in this edition by Simon and Schuster Children’s Books. The first two books came out in a dual binding late August 2017, with another two out by the end of the year and more for 2018.
We will ask Katy to share some of the work with us in due course.
