A Year in the Garden

She's got strength of line and a bold cut and is probably just as good with the garden tools as her printmaking tools. For Dan Pearson's book Natural Selection linocutter Clare Melinksy has charmed us all with her fresh botanical prints. Cast your eyes over this crisp cover and some of the tactile details found inside and make sure read this wonderful interveiw with Clare with Dig Delve.

Adding detail with small brushes of texture and delicate shading Tatiana brings this touching scene to life : having once lived together with fond memories playing scrabble on the porch, the story follows two sisters that play scrabble on their phone to stay in touch and stay connected.

Can't Fight The Moonlight

The very personal story of conflicted masculinity and self-love in Moonlight is a great reminder that cinema can be a profound human experience, Sam Gilbey's cinematic portrait sensitively depicts the lead character and it's already been circulating the realms of the internet and had kudos from the official Moonlight pages. Commissioned by British Airways for 'Highlife Magazine'. Bravo Sam!
