Travelling Light

Jeff Fisher is famous for his unique painterly marks that create atsmosphere and texture. With such a timeless aesthetic it's no wonder he is so prolific in the publishing world. His latest cover is for campaigner, publisher and wanderer Alastair Sawday, who has spent his life travelling. En route he has unearthed a multitude of stories - stories of people ploughing their own furrows, of travellers' tales, stories from the 'front line' of his publishing, ruminations and reflections about places, people and ideas. In this deeply charming, erudite and spirited book, he shares his experiences and explores the value of travel. Published with Little, Brown

Bonnie Be Bad!

David De Les Heras has wowed us all in his first commission with CIA For an article in Scotland in Trust. David was asked to subtly depict the Bonnie Prince Charlie and his darker side – domestic abuse, financial problems, infidelity and political shenanigans. With a clever colour palette and an arrogant expression, we think he's done an extremly good job.

Sandcastle Adventures

If you're off on holiday soon in search of blue skies and better times you might spot Julene Harrison's paper cutting style illustrating 93 Days of Summer for 'Southwest' - the inflight magazine for Southwest Airlines. Time to get out the bucket and spade, we're feeling inspired.

Rich List

Behold Rose Blake's cover illustration for a 16 page supplement inside The Sunday Times Magazine last weekend. The cover portrays an 'alternative rich list' compiled of 40 people (actually 42 as there are two couples) who are driven by something different- so rich from life and what they do for a living as opposed to just rich from money. What an outstanding array of interesting people - nice work Rose!

Green Goods

The wonderfully raw paint marks of illustrator Aitch sets the tone for the cover of the Green Kitchen cookbook. This latest publication by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl is said to already have a cult following for it's exciting vegetarian recipes. Unfortunately as it sometimes goes in the competative artistic world, the final publish favoured a photography route. Nonetheless, we think this wrap cover deserves to be laid out and shared for you all to sample.

London Zoo!

ELLO, ELLO, ELLO what have we here? Some rather cheeky chappies from charming folk illustrator Margaux Carpentier for London Zoo - be sure to spot her murals there too. She has such an individual style that sets her apart from other folk illustrators, crossing the boundaries of painting into the lands of graphic vectors - we can't get enough of these cute guys. Thanks Margaux, you've cheered us right up.

Mazza by Hazza

He's full of Cornish charm and we can almost smell the pasties - it's Harry Tennant again reminding us how much we love an escape to the seaside. From the craftsman himself, a beautiful two-colour screen print poster of St Michael's Mount in Marazion.

Wise Words

For a sensitive feature on teaching and our learning environment, Whooli Chen's insightful illustration has been paired harmoniously with some equally penetrative writing. As the author puts it: "The unexpected education we receive, the experiential moments we remember with friends, teachers, parents, siblings, colleagues are all reminders that emotions and experiences are powerful catalysts for learning, connecting, and even healing.”
