Who said feminists don’t have a sense of humour? British artist Sarah Maple is one of the many feminist creatives that debunks this silly myth. In her latest body of work, she creates hilariously perceptive and provocative works that explore the issues of gender roles, rigid beauty standards and the ridiculous attitudes society has towards […]
In this poster series by London digital production studio, INK, WWII-era propeller planes are carefully paired with their canine counterparts in order to transform their familiar hard-edged, silhouettes into a more adorable craft: a beagle, a schnauzer and a golden retriever. The beauty of Dogfighters stems from reimagining key details from each plane into recognisable features from […]
Leo Fitzmaurice recently won the UK’s Northern Art Prize for his always-witty art installations built painstakingly out of everyday crap. But he doesn’t just re-present crap as crap, in the way that a lot of artists in this field do. No, Fitzmaurice reconfigures his crap with intricate systems – you think you’re looking at and […]
I’ve been creating illustration for a wide variety of media for many years now. I studied illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK, with the legendary children’s book illustrator Tony Ross as my tutor. After University I moved to live and work in Munich, working exclusively in 3D for clients such as MTV, Swatch […]
A figure painter from England, Nicholas Chaundy’s work is rooted in the tradition of the Old Masters.

Antony Micallef did the artwork for volumes 2 and 3 of my DJ mix compilation series Disco Circus. He’s my favourite artist, and now a close friend. I find his art contemporary, yet classic, and he paints with such detail that I can stare at his art for hours
Residing by the sea in sunny Brighton, I work as a freelance illustrator in a rough and exciting mixed media style for a broad range of clients, but also dabble in things like graphic design and fine art.
If there’s one thing other than art that I can appreciate, it’s classic pro wrestling. I’m not talking about the drama queens they call ‘superstars’ these days, but classic characters like Andre the Giant, Bret Hart, Texas Tornado and more. Apparently I’m not the only one. Thanks to UK-based design studio ilovedust, there’s an entire online gallery full of artwork dedicated to these departed legends.
UK artist Clemence Joly has taken the meat out of meat with this awesome range of knitted wool products which was recently on display in a window of Fabrications Gallery at the Broadway Market in London.
The artwork of UK-based Nick Deakin is always bold and colourful. He uses characters and type to adorn worn surfaces for clients including Fused magazine, for whom he did a commissioned illustration of the “so-hot-right-now” band the Ting Tings.
UK illustrator Andrew Council gets to attack windows of Bristol with a paint pen. Legally! Adorning them with intricate collections of creatures, he draws the viewer in with the details of rabbits made of tanks and dinosaurs composed of, well, in his own words ‘lot’s of stuff’.
