Thank you so much. I can't tell you just how much I enjoyed the workshop. It was brilliant and loved seeing you share your secrets.

Hi, I’m Emma Block

I'm a multidisciplinary illustrator living in London, working across editorial illustration, publishing, packaging and branding. My first book, The Joy of Watercolour was published in summer 2018, and I am currently working on new books.

My work is inspired by the people I meet in my everyday life, old photos, vintage clothes, old films, travel, 1950s illustration, 1930s jazz and sausage dogs.
