Johanna Basford

Johanna Basford is a Scottish illustrator and ink evangelist who “prefers pens and pencils to pixels”, nowadays known as one of the pioneers of adult colouring books. Johanna’s first adult colouring book and The New York Times bestseller Secret Garden was published in 2013 and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. With over 15 books published since then and a series of other colouring products, such as journals, planners, and calendars, Johanna’s work attracted the attention of many popular clients such as Tate Modern and Nike. Johanna’s mission to inspire the world to put down technology for a while to pick up a pen or pencil and get creative has sparked a movement of colouring as a form of self-care.

Mark Beaumont

Mark Beaumont BEM is a Scottish long-distance cyclist and adventurer who holds the record for cycling around the world in less than 79 days, completing a total of 18,000 miles in 2017.
