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.

Firstly, artist Lisa Knutson creates a beautiful arrangement of sprigs, berries and autumnal leaves. Perfect... Read more

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
