Chantelle and Burgen Thorne
Chantelle and Burgen Thorne are a pair of married illustrators, working in a mixture of traditional and digital media. On meeting new people they take turns at answering 'what do you do for a living?' because they get such a kick out of saying 'we illustrate childrens' books'!
Thanks to the liberating powers of the internet and email, Chantelle and Burgen live in blissful country idyll of the green hills of KwaZulu-Natal.
Their largest project to date (for Pearson Africa) spans over 132 readers over 12 levels, they also developed the style guide of 220+ illustrations and the cast of quirky characters.
