A post-Christmas must-buy! When Julius Weidemann contacted me a while back I didn’t realise the body of work I put together was for such a great publication. Taschen’s 100 Illustrators, edited by Julius and Steve Heller, is a compendium of all the Illustrators Now books, edited from 600 to 100 ‘best of the best’. It’s certainly a privilege to be amongst so many great exponents of our profession. Thanks Julius, Steven, Daniel and Nora. Not many left on Amazon!
Two new A3 prints, ‘Midlife Cyclist’ and ‘Man and Bike’ have been flying off the shelves. Grab one here.

The ‘making of’ film for Curo’s ‘Learning Space’ drawings. A forward thinking company willing to embrace work that’s not done on a computer. Wall drawings, transferred panels and window vinyls all combined to create an exciting workspace.
