The Brothers Hilts - Illustration clearly runs in the family / by James Huggins

Sometime last year our chums at Penguin USA showed us a picture book they publish called The Insomniacs (below), written by Karina Wolf and illustrated by The Brothers Hilts. We fell in love with their work and were delighted to discover that it is in fact the work of two brothers who combine their talents in different ways using both traditional and digital techniques to achieve the final result.

The work is dark and atmospheric but still has a very childish and playful charm to it. Needless to say we're on the lookout for an excuse to work with these guys.
