Biography: Jill Calder is an award winning illustrator and calligrapher with a love of drawing, ideas, colour, ink, typography, narrative, sketchbooks and yes, deadlines. Jill blends traditional and digital image-making methods as seamlessly as possible to create whimsical illustrations for an extraordinarily broad range of clients around the globe.

Jill trained at Edinburgh College of Art and later at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1992. Through her work, she also has been invited to teach at various schools and universities throughout the UK and also in Hong Kong. Amongst other places, her work has been displayed at the V&A Museum, The National Museum of Scotland and The Royal Scottish Academy.
