Strong lines, a penchant for pastel and a knack for explaining gravity in a few simple diagrams are some of the reasons why Anna’s work is particularly great for anyone who’s into editorial illustration. Her ability to communicate a subject to the viewer is particularly prevalent in her newer work, which explores scientific theory, sunglasses and deep-sea creatures. You’d be forgiven for thinking her earlier work was actually by someone else entirely, but although it may be less immediate, it’s some very, very high class illustration with some truly brilliant characters.
