In this series of posts, we will highlight the most exquisitely fascinating artworks and inspiring images crafted by one of the most talented artist from the design community.

Steve Simpson, a freelance illustrator and designer based from Ireland, is our featured artist of the day. Originally from Manchester, England but now firmly based in Ireland, Steve Simpson is a freelance illustrative designer working in the areas of packaging design, illustration and art for children’s books. Steve considers vintage illustration and packaging to be a huge influence on his work particularly the works of Jim Flora.

Steve takes a traditional approach to his projects, combining and balancing the disciplines of design for print. Spending a great deal of time on construction, shape and problem solving at the pencil stage, he continuously re-draws until a balance of aesthetics, key brief considerations and client satisfaction has been realized. Approved pencils are then worked up in Photoshop using a limited palette of chosen colors.

Take a look at his work below and tell us your favorite children’s book illustrations.
