Illustrations for The World Atlas of Gin for Octopus Books
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Emma Russell | Share link:

I had the great pleasure of illustrating the World Atlas of Gin for Octopus Books.

I was commissioned to make 41 illustrations of botanical elements, stills and cocktails. The client wanted a series of simple line drawings with colour to be produced quite quickly to make their publication deadline. It was a very enjoyable project to work on and the team at Octopus were great. Also, this was the first book to have my name listed on the copyright page as “Illustrator”, it was brilliant seeing that in print. The book is now out at all those places where you’d expect to find books.
