June issue of Creative Review is here and we are silly excited that the editorial team asked us to feature in Monograph (their subscribers only insert of greatness)

With an introduction by our very own Benjamin Cox - Monograph looks at the world of illustration spanning almost thirty years. There are sixteen superb illustration examples that begin with Paul Slater in 1983 and end with Andrew Bannecker in 2010.

The Flower Show

The award winning Kai & Sunny present their new exhibition The Flower Show at Stolen Space gallery.  It follows their previous sell-out solo shows - What A Wonderful World and Return To The Wild.

The exhibition features a series of monotone works highlighted in glittering silver which explore the word 'flower' including large scale, silkscreened prints.

As part of he exhibition, the duo are releasing an A3 limited edition box set containing five letter-pressed images from the show. This set includes a new short story written exclusively for these images entitled 'The Gardener' by Booker Prize nominated author of Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell.

The Flower Show is on until 26th June and to listen to Chris Moran reading the story over images from the exhibition, visit the Guardian website here!

Richard Branson's Submarine

Jonas Bergstrand was commissioned by Project magazine to illustrate an article on Richard Branson's new submarine that plans to go deeper than anything before.  He created 'a life under the sea' in layers depicting a submarine that moves around the page at the touch of a finger unveiling different depths. Super charming and rather funny too... only available on the iPad but here are some stills from the multi layered illustration.
