After visiting the Illustration Graduate Degree Show 2014 at the University of Huddersfield, England, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of work I saw. One illustrator, Melissa Rose caught my attention with her detailed mixed media illustrations depicting themes of nature (and cake!). The fluidity of her drawing techniques are absolutely stunning, produced through various processes such as using sticks dipped in ink and using watercolour to add a splash of brilliant colour.

Having managed to speak to the illustrator at the event, Rose told me about her inspirations drawn from endemic species studied by Charles Darwin on the Galápagos Islands. This influenced her creation and use of sea turtles native to the island for her commercial design for ‘The Body Shop’ (see above). Nature is a common theme in a lot of her work which I find truly inspiring and unique.

Rose has just finished her final year of University after studying in illustration in Huddersfield. A bright future is definitely on the cards for this young illustrator and I can’t wait to see what she produces next!

See more of Rose’s work on her Facebook Page and Website.

Thanks for reading.
