The Taming of the Shrewd

We have a world full of digital apps that give you an answer in milliseconds and a brain overlaoded with funny cat videos - who better to turn to for a running commentary on our bizarre world than our very own Stephen Collins. We can't help but LOL at his shrewd genius. Here's a selection of some of our favourite comic strips for The Guardian Weekend.

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

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!

Swiss Lifestyle

Whooli Chen has once again wowed us with her delicacy and ethereal charm. Swiss magazine Schweizer Famile commissioned a beautiful scene on travelling, featuring a traditional rolling swiss landscape and sweet wheels. It would be hard not to resist booking tickets for this trip.

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.

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.
