Matthew Richards wins Book Illustration Competition

Following on from our post about the finalists for the Inaugural Book Illustration CompetitionHouse of Illustration and The Folio Society have announced the winner of the 'Getting inside The Outsider' competition is Matthew Richards.

In his blog, he states that he did know the result but 'needed to keep it hush hush for the last couple of months which has been v hard, now I can tell the world!'

The competition was launched in October 2010, and asked entrants to produce a series of illustration for The Folio Society's new edition of The Outsider by Albert Camus. The final illustrations, crafted by a mix of university students and award winning illustrators, have all used the traditional method of hand drawing, rather than using digital tools to create their submissions.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
