Frances Castle's Musical Illustrations

As regular readers of our blog will know, Frances Castle, is not only an illustrator but she also has her own record label, Clay Pipe Music. She collaborates with musicians and creates beautiful limited edition CD’s and Vinyl records. She uses design led compositions, varying thickness and boldness of line, with a sophisticated, limited colour palette to produce a unique combination of modern compositions in a folk inspired style.
