This is my entry into the Don’t Panic Design a Poster competition. The theme was Spirit, so I decided to design a free spirit. A dreamer. The posters are judged by Handsome Frank illustration agency. If you have the time, please click HERE to give my entry some support. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

 

I wanted to do a post about some of the recent picture books I have brought. The picture book industry is so exciting right now, and I am enjoying adding to my collection  with some great author/illustrators. Things that strike me most often are the simplicity of the pages, and the end paper designs are often as exciting as the illustrations in the books too (note Jon Klassens I Want My Hat Back).  I hope to add Owen Davy’s Foxly’s Feast and Knight Night to the collection soon. Here are the covers and a few of my favourite spreads from some of them. Enjoy!

 

Ohh Deer have launched their very first competition called Stuck on Repeat.

5 winners will get their designs made into stylish notebooks. The competition is open to illustrators, graphic designers, photographers even textile designers!

This is your chance to be stocked with some fabulous people on Ohh Deer!

Good luck 😀
