10 illustrators we discovered at Le Book's Connections show

We round-up ten illustrators that caught our eye at the Connections creative tradeshow 2013


Le Book's Connections – a tradeshow for the creative community – is an event that creative agencies use to showcase the talent they're currently representing, including illustrators, photographers, stylists, prop designers and more.

We headed down to this year's show in London last week, not only to check out the latest from illustrators we know and love such as Noma Bar and Tara McPherson, but also to discover awesome illustrators that we hadn't come across before.

Here, we round up ten of the best illustrators we discovered during our time at Connections.
