Eric Kincaid Illustrator - Set of 4 Cards - Giveaway


Come walk with me through the enchanting world of Eric Kincaid, one of Dorset’s finest children’s book illustrators, where you will find Tinkerbell, Captain Cook, Cyril the snail, Cards, Limited edition prints and much more, plus a chance to win a set of four cards featuring “Cyril the fastest Snail in the world” value $10


The inspiration to become an illustrator happened on Eric’s 8th birthday when he was given a book of Robin Hood adventures illustrated by HM Brock. “When I saw Brock’s black and white illustration depicting the death of Robin, the emotion he had put into that picture came through to me from the printed page and I was deeply moved. I knew then that was what I wanted to do with my life.”

Eric’s version of Wind in the Willows, which he embarked on in the early eighties, was something of a labour of love. There are literally hundreds of pictures in the book. “It takes three or four days to complete a large illustration.” For his illustrations Eric uses watercolor and gouache to give body to the colour.

Eric’s versatility of style and eye for superb detail has made him one of the most successful artists in this field. Millions of children around the world have enjoyed his illustrated nursery rhymes, children’s verse, fairy tales, and storybooks. His titles have appeared in 14 languages, and worldwide sales exceed 8 million copies.


Eric opened his Etsy shop in April this year and I hope you enjoyed following me through his enchanting world of illustrations and that you were as I was, totally that”enchanted”.
