David De Las Heras has depicted a curious portrait for La Maleta magazine accompanying an discussion 'What Makes Us Human?' Eight academic disciples of different genreations convened at The European School of Humanities to discuss. They cited that the evolutionary success of humans is surely "a mixture of innovative features, intellectual capacity, curiousity, flexibility, adaption and socialisation, that requires an approach from different points of view." A very wise start to the day indeed!

Do we even remember what it's like to plug out? We're all in danger of our hands morphing into tech devices like something out of a Black Mirror episode. With this in mind we are feeling combative today - it is with sheer delight that we share these charming images from David De Las Heras. Painted for a multipart feature titled ethics, it's about making hard and soft decisions, making these decisions with knowledge and how this knowledge can create it’s own problems and create moral dilemmas. We've worked them into a step by step guide to plugging out. This thought has curled a smile onto our lips.

Harry Tennant's latest illustration for Liberation France for an interesting article about human's dominance over animals throughout history. A rather beautiful way to preach about eating less meat and moderate our greed! We think there's a lot to be said for moderative living - thanks guys!

Paul Oakley depicts the calmest yoga barman we've ever seen for the new year issue of imbibe magazine. We're bringing him out now as a 'throwback' to make you all consider your new years resolutions, How cruel. But mostly because our office is getting pretty good at the yoga / pilates classes so we wanted to toast an illustrated cocktail to our limber studio team! Of course we've always been able to balance a glass no problem, sometimes more than one...

Our favourite cookie monster and seriously talented artist Jakob Hinrichs is exhibiting his work in France...
"The Jakob Hinrichs exhibition, in partnership with the Franco-German Center for Provence, offers for the first time in France a broad overview of the artist's talent through the numerous preparatory drawings, sketches and original plates of his adaptations, but also Personal works and projects that remained unpublished in the hexagon, as his very nice contribution to the collective work A Graphic Cosmogony . The idea of Jakob: revisit - nothing less - the myth of the creation of the world ... in 7 pages of course."

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.
