This Week We Love ..... The London Illustration Fair

December 12, 2016
We went along to The London Illustration Fair at the Barge House, Oxo Tower Wharf. As usual it was full of amazing illustrators and designers showcasing their talents.
One of our favourites was The Doodle Man, who was live drawing the walls of the building while we were there, with his playful and intricate graffiti style doodles. Kristjana S Williams also caught our eye with her beautifully layered illustrations.


Overall a really inspiring visit, make sure you go and check out their events next year!

This Week We Love ..... Picture Books

August 22, 2016

We love children's books! They are such a great source of inspiration and always full of beautiful illustrations from crazy talented illustrators. So this week we are featuring two of our favourites!

First off, we have 'City Atlas' illustrated by Martin Haake and written by Georgia Cherry.
This book is chock-a-block with amazing imagery ranging from pizza eating crocodiles to a skateboarding Henry VIII. Get lost in every city around the world just by turning the page.

 

And secondly 'Rapido' by Joelle Jolivet and Jean-Luc Fromental.This Interactive book takes you on a journey around the city with a delivery man and his van. We love the bold and graphic style throughout and you can even see what is going on behind closed doors, for all you nosey neighbours out there!
