Spring Fling and Lizzy Stewart

I have just been in Dumfries and Galloway for a short break in Kircudbright. It was beautiful, we stayed in an amazing country house b&b - which was just brilliant in every way. Kirkudbright is known as Artists' Town as many artists have lived and worked in the town over the years.

I picked up a brochure from the local museum about the "Spring Fling" an Open Studio and arts event held in the area at the end of May, the brochure cover, and inside illustrations were illustrated by Lizzy Stewart. I liked the illustration so much it got me to re look at her work. (So click on the title link to see more of Lizzy Stewart's lovely drawings).

And here is Lizzy Stewart's recent poster design for a special showing by Loco of Submarine, a movie I hope to see as soon as possible it looks great! Loco are selling the poster as a print you can find details via Lizzy Stewart's site.

Here is a portrait of Naoko from Norwegian Wood I lifted from her website because I know one or two first year students were illustrating this very same subject recently. 
I also really do like her self published book "Toska".

You can read lots of interesting stuff about her work, plus advice for students on her blog: 

Lizzy Stewart is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art and is represented by Eastwing Illustration Agency.
