Alexandra Ball - Hants, UK based illustrator

It’s funny how things turn out. Trained as an illustrator, Alexandra Ball drifted further and further from her vocation and ended up as a lender in a building society. The credit crunch of 2008 foreclosed on that avenue, so she launched herself as a professional illustrator. Now her curvy and colourful line drawings adorn many a children’s book and the world seems better for it.
Training Alexandra completed an art foundation course at the University of Portsmouth in 1998, and then an illustration degree at Falmouth College of Arts. Approach Alexandra loves line drawings, spending the early stages of a project working on fluid, hand-sketched compositions. These are scanned into the computer for colouring, and textures are added to give the overall feel of a collage. Style Looking at her illustrations, you can tell Alexandra’s style is influenced by nature and the four seasons. Indeed, much of her inspiration comes when she takes Bee, her Springer Spaniel, out for a walk. Though she uses computers, here images are full of hand-drawn warmth and sensitivity. The animal characters in the worlds she creates have innocent and caring personalities – perfect for illustrated storybooks.

Stacey – you’ll be amazed at how great everything is. I think my team and I have all agreed that we wish Alex could illustrate all our books! She has been so fantastic to work with – witty, colorful, magical, imaginative art. I can honestly say this has been my favorite book to work on! Thank you so much for your help making this beautiful book happen!

Both Alex and Jac have been a joy to work with from start to finish. They are both extremely friendly and approachable whilst remaining professional at all times. Alex has been wonderful at interpreting my aims for the illustrations and producing beautiful art works. I hope I get to the chance to work with them both again in the future
