Johanna Basford

Appearing from no where, Johanna Basford has now established a name for herself, creating beautiful illustrations in black and white. Shooting to fame on the social networking site, Twitter, Basford asked Tweeters for their help in creating different montages.

Picking up the Edinburgh fringe line up, straight away I recognised the monocrome illustrations and found myself scrutinising the cover, trying to find what Basford had hidden in the design. It was so refreshing to see someone who attended the same Art School as me being so successful, well done!

With thanks:
