Øivind Hovland – profile
Øivind’s portfolio has been updated with some new work – please check it out!
Øivind spent his university years ‘living’ in the print room, experimenting with various printing techniques. Screen printing emerged as his weapon of choice, and the technique continues to influence his digital and printed work.
To Øivind, illustration is about storytelling. ‘Even if you only have one small image at your disposal, a story can still be told. And that, in a nutshell is my aim, to tell a story using whatever means I have. He has been fortunate enough to tell stories for a long list of international clients, over a broad range of media.
Øivind is also the author of two illustrated books, published by Tabella, and his work has been short listed for the Nationwide Mercury Prize Art Exhibition.

Josy Bloggs new work
Some new children’s books inspired work from Josy Bloggs and a book cover.
Josy loves working with layout and colour to create impactful illustration and enjoys combining illustration with type and font selection, to create a balance between text and image. She describes herself as ‘living, eating, breathing, illustration’. Not obsessive at all then! To counterbalance this when she is not creating she likes to take her dog for long walks, or cycle in the Yorkshire countryside.
Some of Josy Blogg’s recent clients include…
AA Publishing, Arcturus Publishing, John Lewis, W H Smith, Waitrose
