How it all started

In 1986, founder Paul Beebee left Cornwall College and gained a position at Blue Chip Illustration in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, as in-house illustrator working with local advertising agencies and design companies. Breaking away and moving to Cirencester in 1989, he set up Beehive Illustration, representing former colleagues and illustrator friends, from the garden shed.

Skip forward 30 years and the dedicated team of 7 now represent over 150 illustrators around the world, creating artwork for thousands of children's books. Proud of their hard-earned reputation the team offer great service, gentle understanding, and an uncompromising objective to deliver exactly what their customers have come to expect: beautiful illustrations, on budget and on time, every time.
