Robin Date is an extremely talented (if not gifted) young illustrator who is based in KwaZulu Natal. She used pencil crayon on paper for Palace Malice, and I believe that the result is rather astonishing. No gentle water colours here! Her pictures are bold, bright and extremely sophisticated and her line and form is remarkable. I believe that she is an illustrator to watch out for. If this is what she could do in her late teens I look forward to watching the progression of this amazing artists career.
