one of my most favourite paintings. I remember first seeing it about 10 years ago in an illustration annual. I just discovered it was created by Richard Thompson, who is also the maker of the Cul de Sac comics.

Shaun Tan created a new book: Rules of Summer… a beautifully simple yet surreal story of two brothers. 

Besides loving the book, I was interested to hear and see Shaun chat about the themes and processes in his work in the videos section of the site. Fascinating!

A few great illustrations by Vitali P. Konstantinov, for Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. I really enjoy that cupid-baby.

Every few weeks for the last five years, I have checked Natalie Ascensios’ website to see if she has updated any new work. She hasn’t, but I’m still not disappointed. Her older work is astounding and brilliant, and it’s hard to choose a favourite. On a school trip to New York nearly 6 years ago, I got to see her painting of the Algonquin Round Table close and in person, and it was the highlight of my trip.

I discovered the paintings of Catherine Kehoe today. Fascinated by them all, but particularly her portrait and figurative work.
