Inside the Secret Sketchbooks of @graemebase
For more from Graeme’s previously-unseen library of sketches, follow @graemebase on Instagram.
If these images of mechanical, organic and otherwordly creatures feel familiar, it could be because they come from the imagination of beloved children’s book illustrator Graeme Base (@graemebase).
"I’ve been writing and illustrating picture books for something like 30 years, but for every finished piece there are dozens of sketches that have never seen the light of day," he explains. The Australian artist—perhaps best known for the 1986 alphabet book Animalia (1986)—uses his Instagram account to share this trove of beautiful, unpublished pieces.
"The recurring themes in my art are nature and fantasy with whimsical overtones," he says. "I’m slightly shocked to find myself well into my fifties now, but inside the 11-year-old schoolboy is alive and kicking."

"Life | Style".
This photo shoot was a huge success thanks to all the stylish and creative men involved in it. My vision was to capture men’s fashion and incorporate it into an “everyday life” kind of feel. Many people see the DMV area as a place with no type of style or fashion sense, but that’s not true because if you look well enough you will find some of the best styles around, and these young men did a great job showing it. I hope you enjoy these images as much I do!
