Artist Research – Emily Bailey

Another contemporary illustrator featured on the Flying Eye Books website is Emily Bailey

The book series ‘One Day on our Blue Planet’ currently has two books which depict different environments to inform children of the wide variety of species that exist.



This image was a personal project to study the various levels of the ocean and the animals that inhabit it. I love the non-standard shape of the design as it leads the eye down the page. It also has a really nice, rough texture with a limited colour palette contrasted injections of bright yellows and green on the fish.surface
