Jacqueline Ayer

I've been talking to a few illustration students this week about the beautiful work of Jacqueline Ayer and thought it would be nice to share some. This is one of my favourite books by her called Nu Dang and His Kite, and was written and illustrated in 1959. I've talked about Jacqueline's work before and have since found out that she trained as a fashion illustrator in Paris, before moving to the far east with her husband. I love her observations of daily life in Thailand, and her use of line with flat colour.

About Town

On Friday I was photographed with my work for the Cambridge University Science Festival. The illustration I did for the brochure has popped up all over town in the last few weeks as posters, and will soon be a huge banner too - how exciting! You can check out the Science Festival's events here, and see more wonderful photos (including all those above) of Cambridge University life on the Flickr stream.
