Trina Dalziel has worked as a freelance illustrator for over seventeen years. Originally from the North of Scotland, she grew up on a tomato farm before living in the Netherlands, Copenhagen, Helsinki, and Paris. She earned a degree in illustration, and at the post-graduate level studied twentieth-century art and design history, which has all fed into her love of art, design, nature, animals, Scandinavia and European cities. She lives in London where she greatly appreciates the access to exhibitions, galleries, and museums which fuel her inspiration and research.
James Gulliver Hancock
James Gulliver Hancock feels sick when he’s not drawing. He panics that he may not be able to draw everything in the world… at least once. His obsession with re-imagining his world has seen him work for major print, TV, and music publishing releases, including Coca-Cola, Ford Motors, Herman Miller, Businessweek Magazine, The New York Times, and Simon&Schuster. He has participated in projects in the USA, the UK, Indonesia, Austria, Germany, France, and Australia, taking his whimsical perception around the world. Currently he works out of two studios: one in The Pencil Factory in Brooklyn, New York, and from his homeland studio by the beach in Sydney, Australia.
