Club together for the Kids

Maria Raymondsdotter created these odd little shapes as part of a huge collaborative print (called a mandala) organised by inkdotprints to raise money for Kids Company. The private view will be held at the Station Kitchen in Bristol on the 24th October.


We've also recently updated Maria's portfolio with lots of new work! A good time for a look as any we think!

The Full English

Paul Slater has an exhibition coming up at 1830 Gallery at the Artworks in Halifax. Sadly he's robbed us of a beautiful painting that's been hanging in the office to put in the show, which shall be sorely missed. But it'll be a great show of paintings and drawings from the past 30 years of an outstanding career including new pieces created especially for the exhibition. The show opens on the 28th September and runs until the 9th November.

Nishants editorial takeover

We've spotted this hilarious illustration by Nishant Choski on the New Yorker website this week and are constantly in awe of how much expression he's able to coax out of the smallest brushstroke. Less is absolutely more! Keep an eye out for Nishants regular weekly feature in the Guardian Weekend Supplement, out tomorrow. It'll definitely be worth the trip to the newsagents before brekkie.

The Girl Effect

Ulla Puggard has been working with The Girl Effect, a campaign working with young girls around the world to eradicate early childhood marriage, female genital mutilation and to improve education levels and status among young adolescent women and girls in poverty. She created this height chart for an exhibition alongside the photographer Stephanie Sinclair to illustrate the stages in these young girls lives, where many of them are married off as young as five years old. A great cause and a creative infographic solution to communication of ideas.

On The Draw

Mads Berg was commissioned by the Canary Islands Tourist board, alongside 6 other international artists, to create a series of posters based on one of the islands in the archipelago using his own experiences and artistic medium. His posters ooze balmy summer warmth and his layered textures expertly capture the rugged landscape of the island of El Hierro.
