Usborne Publishing - British History

As well as illustrating fiction books for children, I have also had the opportunity to do some non-fiction work for children too. A couple of year’s ago, along with a few other artists I illustrated a large encyclopaedia on British History, published by Usborne Publishing. 
The artwork consisted of tiny little spot artwork and were not much bigger than a large postage stamp in the book. They are not in my usual style, as they were looking for something that would be in keeping with the style of the book overall, but I thought I would share some of these illustrations with you today, just to show you the truly wide range of things we illustrators get to do!
