Holly Exley is a young British illustrator with some big clients under her belt including Marks and Spencers, Stylist Magazine, Lonely Planet and The Wall Street Journal. Pursuing her natural talent with watercolour painting, Holly has been commissioned to work on projects from illustrating music apps, wildlife and cooking books, and city and charity campaigns. Her illustrations have an uplifting aesthetic with colour washes of wonderful hues, with an emphasis on light and contrast. I really like her food illustrations…food never looked so good! Holly has a blog, website and also a YouTube channel where she talks about her work and the life in the world of illustration.

Gillian Blease

GB portrait

Gillian Blease is a freelance illustrator who gets commissioned by big publishing companies, supermarkets and other illustrators. I especially like her digital designs she did for Waitrose, as being a regular Waitrose food shopper I was happy to see such fun exciting designs in their magazine (see below).

Her illustrations commissioned by newspapers such as The Guardian, The Economist and The Financial Times are powerfully thought provoking, some of which are even controversial. What stands out in Blease’s digital images is how she puts two and two together whilst in-keeping a flat stylistic overall form. This website displays her portfolio of work.
