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.

I love my work. I hate my work.

This week the question raised is of whether or not it’s possible to love the whole of creative process, more sterling stuff from James Victore, if you’re feeling this and want to see more then just hop over to here to get your inspirational fix from his back catalogue of awesome Burning Questions series.

Exhibition

Four Fish of The Apocalypse

Breeze Block Gallery, Portland
Solo Show by Greg Eason

“God – What you done?

Greg – I used religious and apocalyptic imagery to deconstruct The Book of Revelation – Chapter 6 of the King James Bible.

God – Why?

Greg – It’s a good read, and I find a lot of inspiration within it. I’ve always enjoyed religious imagery – it’s quite beautiful, and powerful.

God – Hmmm, okay. But, there are no fish in that bit of text.

Greg – Think so.

God – Nop.

Greg – Sorry.

God – Don’t do it again.

Greg – Okay, can’t promise anything though.

God – Bye.

Greg – Bye.” — Greg Eason

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!

James Victore gets Lazy

More great words of wisdom from our man in Brooklyn, James Victore, this time on the subject of getting lazy in your work and being able to accept the right kind. Firmly enjoyed his sentiment to the questioner of “Stupid people don’t ask questions”.
