I love the use of vibrant colour and textures and collage use in there illustration; specifically in their illustration of ‘The Girl Who Spun Gold’ by Virginian Hamilton. There style of having quite simple figures filled with intricate designs and patterns is something that is very difficult to do without losing focus on the piece itself. However the too Illustrators manage to do this within their work.
