Big-Ups Matt Robertson Has Made ‘Picture This’ Shortlist

Advocate Art Freelance Illustrator Matt Robertson has beaten hundreds of artists to secure a place in the final of Waterstone’s ‘Picture this’ competition. Congratulations Matt! In June the bookseller invited readers to vote for a favourite fairy tale that they would like to see brought to life by Michael Morpurgo, one of the world’s greatest storytellers. Over a 1,000 people voted and the winner was Beauty and the Beast. Hundreds of aspiring illustrators entered. Now Matt has got through to the final few with the winner being announced in October, the best of luck to you Matt.
