in an age of digital illustration, Andrew Davidson is a UK illustrator who uses some of the most traditional illustration techniques from previous centuries, wood engraving, color woodcuts and gouache painting.
The result is a delightful blend of traditional and contemporary sensibilities. Some of his wood engravings, in particular, have a great feeling of illustration history, but applied to such modern titles as the Harry Potter series.
There is a variety of illustrations in each of his mediums on Davidson’s website. You can find some larger reproductions on the sites of his artists’ representatives, The Artworks Illustration and Mendola Associates.
There is also a brief video of Davidson on Vimeo, in which he discusses and demonstrates some of his process.

Well, they certainly don’t look contemporary. I shall go and check him out.
Talented Andrew Davidson did wonderful british style Illustrations for Marks and Spencer’s ‘Biscuits for Tea’ Tins.
Wonderful. Thanks, AElle.
