New site

A real pleasure to come across Grace’s work a while ago so now seems as good a time as any to do a quick post about her as she’s just launched her lovely new site (resplendent with a lovely colourful gradient background).

Her understanding and application of colour and line are a joy to behold, I can only suggest that you take your time going through her site as the deeper you dig the more you get!

Stand Up! Or, How We Love to Watch You Risk It All.

Some mid week pep for you from the great James Victore, this week talking about “Earning it ALL the time” and not becoming lazy in your work. I can’t recommend highly enough sending a ‘Burning Question’ to James, we did it a while back and got a fantastic answer back from him, if you don’t know, ask!

I have no idea how I came across the work of Llew Mejia, one day it just became apparent that I was continuously ‘liking’ his work on Instagram. Intricate patterns and exciting colour combinations dash across character drawings bringing them to life in a familiar but equally totally fresh and exciting way. I urge you to go forth and discover the wonderful work of Llew Mejia.

Wonderful work

Hang loose.

If it wasn’t so damned sunny in Salford today I’d bemoan the fact that this week’s Burning Questions comes to us from Hawaii, but it is, so all is good. This week the inimitable James Victore brings us the word of sunshine and happiness, as ever great pep for a Tuesday morning whether you’re feeling the sun on your back or not.

In Manchester Tonight

In the rainy city there is not one, but two shows previewing tonight. The first is ‘Above & Below’ by one of our favourite illustrators Rob Bailey. Rob will be bringing his savant like understanding of colour and form to the ever changing walls (and ceiling) of Common on Edge Street for the third time, managed to avoid any kind of sneak peaks so to say I’m really rather excited about this one is an understatement. Just up the road at Soup Kitchen on Spear Street you will find the second show ‘Flight’, a group show curated by Paul Hallows and Wotgodforgot featuring work made in relation to aviation created out of paper and/or card by a variety of designers, illustrators, artists, 3-d makers which promises to be equally fantastic. See you at the bar!
