Al Heighton and Chinwe Russell

Al Heighton is a freelance illustrator and teacher, born in 1978 in Doncaster. His dad always encouraged him to draw, sketchbooks were always around and bought for him as presents so drawing became routine – like changing his underpants. His work has featured in the Guardian Sport section, Creative Futures, and the best selling ‘The Picture Book’ by Pentagrams Angus Hyland.
Chinwe Russell is a visual artist, painting stories on canvas. Her work is inspired by history: what was before and how it has shaped our present. She is inspired by strength, particularly the strength of women, and admires courage.
