Artists Interview – Reginald Swinney

Pure Illustration represent many talented illustrators and artists, and we license their artwork to publishers and manufacturers all over the world. Sometimes, in the day to day of business, it is easy to loose sight of the fact that the artwork is the price and joy of a certain artist rather than a commercial product that will help a product sell. And so we like to take the time to introduce our artists and illustrators as individuals, so that our customers can connect with their... Read more

Design Roundup: Autumn

We’re feeling ready for Autumn now, so bring on the scarves, socks and change in weather we say! Here are some autumnal inspired works by Pure artists, as well as a bit of ‘Thanksgiving’ thrown in. We know it’s a touch early (for Thanksgiving) but we just love these colour palettes and subjects generally and feel the need for something new to consider now summer is on it’s way out. Firstly, artist Lisa Knutson creates a beautiful arrangement of sprigs, berries and autumnal leaves. Perfect... Read more

Pure Illustration – Houses

Houses and the ‘Home’ provide an excellent subject for licensing. Houses are a personal favourite subject of mine and obviously make for great ‘New Home’ designs but also winter house scenes make for lovely Christmas designs too. I know a little out of season during this heatwave but it’s always nice to see what some of the Pure artists have to offer. Artists Justine Kimmer, Carol Jonas and Fiona Miles have some truly stunning winter house scenes to offer for Christmas. Camilla Charnock provides a true... Read more

Pure Illustration offers a wide range of themes for licensing – a true favourite among customers is …cakes! Specifically Birthdays and Wedding, both these occasions require a wide range of licensing options and our artists love providing designs in this area. Fresh and contemporary works by Melanie Chadwick and Sara Brezzi are sweet in theme and palette. Cupcakes are a fun subject that cover a multitude of licensing situations. Colours and patterns that pop never seem to tire and suit so many products. See pieces... Read more
