Consciousness

Richard Wilkinson has produced two illustrations for the cover of The New Scientist. This alternate illustration was produced for an issue about how scientists have found a new way to test for consciousness and have since found evidence of it in nearly all animals - including insects and molluscs. So we better think twice when swatting away mosquitoes from now on! See the final cover illustration in his portfolio

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.

Forbidden Forest

We can't help but share another delight from Andy Singleton's  project with Pottermore. Our favourite and rather heoric creature, known to some as 'Witherwings' but most as 'Buckbeak'. A charming and passionate hippogriff who lived with Rubeus Hagrid in the School grounds and who was a loyal in defending Harry in battle mutliple times. Andy has created a whole array of paper crafted 3D models if you're as nerdy as we are about the wizzarding world.

Someone Like Me

Happy Shrove Tuesday folks!

 

Our visual treat to you today is a look back at the colourful book of Margaux Carpentier. 'Someone Like Me' is a children’s book from Concern which explores diversity through the stories of eight remarkable children from eight different countries. Someone Like Me explores the lives of children affected by war, natural disaster and extreme poverty, with the aim of introducing children to concepts of development in a way they can understand. A beautiful tangible collaboration between author Fionnagh Nally and Margaux. See more of this inside in her folio.

50 Things

This tactile 48 page book is designed by Dust Studio for school children containing a list of 50 things to do before leaving Wybourn School, Sheffield. The publication is beautifully carved throughout with playful graphic vectors and is finished with such finesse. We could all learn a thing or two from these guys!

Paper Scales

Andy Singleton worked with Lisbon based band 'Memoria De Peixe' (loosely translated as fish memory) to produce a floating paper fish that incorporated MagLev (Magnetic levitation) technology. The band commissioned Andy to create the fish for use in their upcoming live shows that coincide with the release of their second album 'Himiko Cloud'. Catch it in paper scale action here.
