Fabian Negrin

Fabian Negrin gave a sumptuous presentation of his work yesterday. It was such a shame that there was not time to go on longer. Winner of the Bologna International Award for illustration, for an adaptation of Red Riding Hood, his work is innovative, colourful and unconventional. There were so many ideas for making illustrated books so exciting both from a design and an illustrative point of view, and he appears to break all the rules to amazing effect...I was amazed to see how he combines illustration styles in the same book ...and it works!
