Rosanna Tasker - Bristol, United Kingdom based illustrator

Working from her Bristol studio, Rosanna Tasker creates elegant illustrations full of elongated forms, natural settings, fascinating characters and subtle color schemes. Alive with lines and textures, and with a unique creative feel, it’s perfect for editorial, publishing and advertising clients.
As well as drawing and painting, Rosanna loves greenery and her studio is full of potted plants. “Most recently I fell in love with tropical Araucaria trees and Dragon Blood trees while in Gran Canaria,” she says. Rosanna received First Class Honors when she studied Illustration at the University of the West of England, in Bristol.

Approach

There are two main elements to Rosanna’s approach. The first stages of her work are created using natural media – pencils for the line work, and gouache paints, created on separate layers using a light box. With the rich papers she uses, it gives her work its individual, handcrafted feel. Images are completed digitally, using Photoshop to clean them up and add the finishing touches.

Style

Delicate lines and gentle textures are woven together to depict elegant, elongated figures and forms. Rosanna loves to experiment with scale, and nature usually plays a big role in her art. She uses a limited palette for each piece, sometimes punchy, sometimes subtle, but always in keeping with the brief.

Rosanna’s clients include The Guardian, New York Times, Wendy's, Lenny Letter, Tangent Books, The Bristol Cable, Pizza Workshop, Moon Design & Build, Penguin Random House and Yurtel.

Rosanna is an amazing talent. She took our concept and ran with it, resulting in a series of gorgeous illustrations that were spot-on and captured the essence of our campaign concept.She is also a joy to work with, she was willing to accommodate the tweaks we asked for and work with our deadlines. I would definitely hire her again.

t’s the first time I’ve commissioned an illustrator so I was quite nervous about how the process would work, but I needn’t have worried. Having looked through the work of a whole range of artists it was Rosanna’s style that really stood out for me. After writing up a basic outline we chatted on the phone and came up with various ideas together. As soon as I saw the first roughs I knew we’d picked the right one. Rosanna was really responsive to all the feedback from me and various other members of our online community as we worked through the process. All the illustrations were delivered ahead of schedule and the results are even better than I had imagined. I love her quirky style and enthusiasm – glad to have found her and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
