Silkscreened skylines by illustrator Kate McLelland

Kate McLelland's Edinburgh

Kate McLelland's London

Edinburgh-based illustrator Kate McLelland has a great portfolio of work. A recent graduate of Edinburgh College of Art’s Masters degree in illustration, Kate has worked on prints, commissions, exhibitions and a children’s book.

I really like her series of skyline prints. Originally created as an entry to a competition held by London Transport, her London print was a re-deigned skyline that reflected London today. After enjoying the process of creating the image (and picking up first runner-up in the competition) Kate decided to make two more city skylines – first Edinburgh and then Paris. On her website she notes that every year she has created a new skyline but hasn’t decided on which one to do this year. Hopefully she decides soon because I can’t wait to see it!

Kate McLelland’s ‘Skyline’ prints are currently available for purchase from the Hello Polly store.
