William Grill Meet Folio’s newest illustrator: William Grill.
William Grill is our latest illustrator, now featured in the Folio Showcase section of our website. His work is unique and fantastic in the use of coloured pencils and relief prints.
William finds much of his inspiration from nature and the world around him, evident in his richly illustrated narratives. In addition to illustrating, he also makes time to run art workshops and a weekly art club at Hanover Primary School.
Again, welcome to the Folio family, William!
Peter Greenwood Peter Greenwood has recently illustrated an interactive game!
Commissioned by The Study Group, Peter Greenwood took on the challenge of creating an interactive student game. Each area has a collection of pop-up questions whose topic is illustrated by the art in each circle. His work seamlessly develops from pencil sketches to colourful vectors.
Here’s his take: "I imagined the students desk with all the items arranged perfectly as a good starting point and the game track weaving through them. It was a really nice commission to work and it gave me a chance to bring out my OCD skills."
Thanks, Peter! Great work integrating as many “study items” as possible into this colourful, winding maze.

Karolis Strautniekas Karolis’s recent animation illuminates the magic of shoes for a huge exhibit at the V&A Museum!
Created for the Shoes: Pleasure and Pain exhibit at The Victoria and Albert Museum, Karolis Strautniekas’s beautiful animation magically retells the story of Cinderella’s shoes. This tale crosses borders and cultures, but every single one reveals the transformative powers of shoes.
The four narratives in Karolis’s animation are brought to life with his talented use of light and dark as well as colour and texture. Pieces of the lovely animation appeared behind Tamara Rojo, the artistic director of the English Ballet, while she introduced the exhibit.
