Emily Butterfield

BA (Hons) Illustration and Design | Class of 2021

My illustrations are inspired by animals and nature and my areas of specialism are children’s illustration and art licensing. The majority of the work I produce is initially created traditionally with mediums such as watercolor and collage, and then digitized to add digital hand drawn elements and textures.

My final project for my degree was based on modernising classic children’s literature. The main deliverable of this brief was to illustrate a selection of Aesop’s Fables, to allow the stories to be enjoyed by a modern-day audience.
