Ross Collins

Ross Collins is a well known Children’s Illustrator and Author. Its nice that his website looks quite child friendly too, The characters that appear on there look innocent and welcoming. For the amount of books that hes done illustrations for I would of expected him to be a lot old than he is, but hes a hard worker.. He only graduated in 1994 from the Glasgow School of Art with a First in Illustration. He has also won many awards which include Scottish Arts Council Book Award 1999, his book called ‘Alvie Eats Soup’ gained an Oppenhiem Award, and he was nominated for a Blue Peter Book Award. He has also been involved in Animation Character development collaborating with the likes of The Walt Disney Company on the Film a Nightmare Before Christmas. Other things he’s done include editorial and graphics work book festivals and school visits.

This particular book really stood out to me while I was looking at all the books he’s illustrated for. I think the bright read really jumped out at me. I then noticed the detail on the ladies dress for example all those skulls and cobwebs. Its really cool! I also like the way that her hair is blowing off the edge of the book, but then again, if it wasn’t like that then the top of the book would look really blank.
