Linocut illustration with digital spot colour, commissioned by FT Weekend to illustrate an article about lone enemy soldiers meeting in a Russian orchard during WW2.
Butterflies and birds, field mice and bees – the artwork of English illustrator Becca Thorne hums with the authentic rhythm of nature. Cutting lino blocks and printing with colorful inks onto handmade paper, Becca’s deep connection with her subject comes through in every hand-crafted image she creates.
