Plain Sailing with Kate Miller

Kate Miller has a strong screen printing background which has patterned the way in which she illustrates. That heritage is no more highlighted than in her latest work for High Life, British Airways magazine.


Her work always uses colour in interest ways and we love the shapes and textures which blend together on the page. A mixture of found imagery and new creation - this is some blue sky designing to be marvelled at in the air.

Mike Wilks for Stylist

Mike Wilks' compositions are so rich in detail and colour you can definitely spend a good while looking, scanning and getting lost in the image.


His recent work for Stylist magazine is no different. One for our French readers out there but we can all marvel that absolutely beautiful images.

All Day I Dream About Sneakers

Stylist Magazine always work with great illustrators and today is no different! Spotted is a series of magnificent maps by Jitesh Patel sketching running routes around the streets of London and Manchester.


It's all in aid of the new Adidas Boost trainer! What better way to don a new pair of sneakers than trekking some pretty inspiring city circuits? Lace up those boots and load up on those carbs.


My personal favourite has to be the Lambeth city pop culture route. Starting at The Vaults in Waterloo and onto Brixton Village.

Step Inside the Historium...

Katie Scott's Animalium was a riotous beginning to the Welcome to the Museum series by Big Picture Press. What could be more exciting than an open all hours pass to an exhibition of the world's most exotic creatures?


Well, I tell you what, Richard Wilkinson has teamed up with Big Picture Press to bring you something equally spectacular. 'Historium' presents 160 Ancient artefacts, housed between the loving pages of a beautiful hardback book.


You don't need to be a history geek like me to love this one! Cannot wait to get my hands on a copy....

Robson in the Woods

Almost in reverse to the Kai Clement's interview we brought you yesterday is a new gif created by Graham Robson.


Graham has an on-going love with Henry Thoreau and, in particular, his seminal book Walden. Part biography, part philosophical tome and part survival manual Walden offers us a way of understanding society by withdrawing from it... So no Mediterranean treats for Graham...


Anyway. it's a beautiful image! Check it out!

It seems a natural fit then that Wendy Plovmand should create such beautiful graphics for one of their many beauty stores. The result is a handsome foliage of botanical illustration.
