#50 in an ongoing series of posts celebrating the alphabet
Right now I am loving the work of crazy-talented London-based illustrator and hand lettering artist Linzie Hunter.
Originally from Scotland, she graduated from Glasgow University and then studied illustration at the Chelsea College of Art and Design.
Linzie’s distinctive, exuberant doodles have graced everything from magazine and book covers, posters, cookie tins, children’s toys, stickers and stationery to oodles of promotional materials. Her impressive international client list includes The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Scholastic, HarperCollins, Roaring Brook Press, Sainsbury’s, Random House, Macmillan, American Girl, and Marks & Spencer.
Her hand drawn letters have irresistible “personalities” and her zany characters often prompt a double take. I also love her maps and ongoing poster series of Uninspiring Messages. And yes, she’s illustrated a children’s book: A Small Brown Dog With a Wet Pink Nose (written by Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen).
Enjoy this mini-trip to Linzie Land! :)
