Studio Operative is a multidisciplinary production and publishing studio focused on showcasing the possibilities of contemporary illustration.

We aim to provide a space to promote innovative ideas and discussion regarding the future of the discipline and produce a wide range of published matter. We collaborate with exciting illustrators to facilitate work that is reflective of the eclecticism of illustration as a subject while exploring the increasing tendency for many illustrators to work more broadly across the visual arts.

We are dedicated to promoting the continued importance of printed matter in the age of the internet as well as exploring the potential of online communication.

As well as individual publications we publish Limner, a journal which presents an ongoing discourse regarding current industry practice, education and ideas.
