Well, what an exciting year 2022 has been, We’ve welcomed some brilliant new illustrators to the list, had a number of books featured on award shortlists, we’ve hosted some brilliant events, launches and exhibitions and our artists have worked harder than ever. We have celebrated great successes transitioning from the page to the small screen with a number of our favourite characters striking major television deals, and there’s more to come in 2023! 

Catch up on all our brilliant news features and illustrator spotlight interviews from 2022 HERE, and don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter for weekly updates.

We look forward to telling you all about all the exciting projects we have lined up in 2023 in the spring. Lots of love from all of the Arena team.

It's been almost impossible to choose but here are just a few of our highlights.
