Folio Magazine Feature


South West illustrators Rachel Bright and Paula Bowles are 2 of 5 children's book illustrators to be interviewed and feature in May's issue of 'Folio - The West's Best Lifestyle Magazine'.

The article offers a glimpse into the illustrators life and 'uncovers the driving force that motivates them'. They covered questions such as 'where your inspiration comes from', 'the ups and downs of the illustrators life', and 'what it takes to build a career in illustration'.

Rachel's illustration from her latest book 'What Does Daddy Do?' looks delightful as the cover feature artwork:
And Paula's 'Mice Cup of Tea' welcomes the readers on the inside title page:
Folio is available wide spread around Bristol and Bath in shops, restaurants, and a variety of different venues. For more information contact Folio Bristol: 0117 942 8491

Congratulations Paula and Rachel, on getting your work into Folio. I shall enjoy reading a copy at the library on Saturday... and discovering how to 'build my career' :o)

Congrats too on your book publication Rachel. I hope to see a copy at our next meeting.
