Lost for Words

Greg Becker is the clever-fella behind these charming drawings for a new book called “Lost English”.

Concerning old words which are rarely used, the book follows a Lost English Rediscovered theme, and is published by Michael O’Mara Books.

Harvest Fast Day Pack

More amazing lettering skills from Ruth Rowland this month, with this commission for the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development's Harvest Fast Day Pack.

Comprising two posters and a collection envelope, the packs are distributed to primary and secondary schools in the UK. The stunning poster photography is by Marcella Haddad.

And the good news continues for Ruth, she has just won first prize for her Aruba Posters in the Design Ad Campaign category of the Altpicks Awards. Fantastic!

Hello to Bec Winnel

A warm November hello please for Bec Winnel and her thoroughly wonderful whispery drawing work.

Based in Melbourne, and working predominantly in colour pencil, graphite and pastel, Bec’s delicate portraits are reminiscent of vintage postcards with a hint of George Tooker on a happy day.

Food Glorious Food

This Dickensian yuletide scene is the creation of Jamel Akib, who has illustrated two terrific food-themed pieces for Real Deal magazine.

Explains Jamel: “Chalk pastels worked well in getting over that dusky light and the softness of the snow... and got me in the mood for Christmas early!”

Tatler Anniversary Edition

The talented Emma Rios has an impressive 18 pages of her work in the current issue of Tatler magazine.

For this, their 300th Anniversary Edition, Tatler commissioned Emma to created a replica of New/Old Bond Street for 17 jewellers on the famous street. Each jeweller had a replica of the shop front, complete with gorgeous jewellery displays.


Good news this month for Rosie Sanders whose long out-of-print book, "The English Apple", is to be republished next year by Frances Lincoln entitled "Apples".

For this new edition, Rosie has added 22 cultivars to the original set. Each new cultivar features two painted views of the fruit, as well as the leaves, blossom and a cross-section.

Wall to Wall

One huge and exciting challenge was set for Miss Led this month after visiting Marcelle Symons at her boutique in London.

Miss Led was requested to cover as much wall space as possible, across 3 floors, adjoining corridors, walls, stairs and doors to include changing rooms. All in just 2 weeks! Plans are set for a return to the site for some live window painting next month.
