Artists & Illustrators – March 2022
English | 86 pages | pdf | 81.29 MB
Hello …and goodbye! This is my last issue of Artists & Illustrators after almost 15 years of working on the title in some capacity. In that time, I have been so lucky to collaborate with a host of incredible staff and contributors to put together every issue and I want to thank each and every one of you. No other job would have allowed me to snoop around Peter Blake’s studio, learn to paint with Anne Magill, judge exhibitions with Ken Howard, drink tea with Celia Paul, commission art from Quentin Blake, and be attacked by Derren Brown’s parrot. I hope you ﬁnd my ﬁnal issue every bit as useful and informative as my previous 188.
I want to leave you with a pencil portrait of myself, drawn by my 10-year-old nephew Harvey. He’s already an incredibly talented artist with a very bright future ahead of him and I hope this is the ﬁrst of many places in which you will see his art in the years to come. Hearing from readers who have rediscovered a childhood passion for art
with the help of Artists & Illustrators has been one of the unexpected joys of working on this magazine every month and I hope you all continue on your creative paths for years to come. I’d love to continue to hear your stories and you can ﬁnd me at www.steve-pill.co.uk from now on.
