I am excited to release the second pack in my Illustrators Collection, Romantic Illustration Brushes. Inspired by the work of twin sisters, Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone, who created some of my favourite childhood illustrations. I have tried to capture the romantic style of illustration that was their trademark.


The sisters' started gaining popularity in the 1950s, and are probably best remembered for their illustrations for Dodie Smith’s classic novel, The Hundred and One Dalmatians, but they illustrated literally dozens, if not hundreds, of books. They always worked on illustrations together, with Janet specialising in animals and birds, while Anne would focus on the people and period costumes that are a hallmark of their work. 

This pack contains 7 New Unique Brushes and a Sketch pencil

  • Soft Liner
  • Laying Down the Paint
  • Dust Streak Shader
  • Glazed
  • Hair and Fur
  • Textured Painterly
  • Opaque Painterly
  • Sketch Pencil


You can see their influence at work in the listing images where I have been inspired by their drawings and have tried to emulate this style. To find out more about the Grahame Johnstone sisters and their various works, you can click here.
