Cat O’Neil for Guardian Observer

Happy Monday! Our London weekend was a rather cold and wet one but the Lovely Cat O’Neil brought warmth and joy with her exquisite work for Observer Food Monthly – ‘Korean Cooking, my Mother and me’. Rob Allison’s powerful piece on learning to define his identity, his role and people’s attitudes to difference through his mother’s cooking made the weekend really rather sunny. Many thanks to Paul Reed for this splendid commission.

Such a lovely set of covers from the wonderful Sarah Gibb for Harper Collins. I can think of quite a few little ones who’d love to unwrap these on Christmas morning!

Such a powerful image by the wonderful Joe Morse. This striking piece graces a DJ booth in an achingly cool Shanghai club.

In praise of Illustration

Cat O’Neil and I were very touched to see a letter in the FT on Saturday extolling the beauty and sensitivity of her image in the Life & arts Section last week. I did spend the weekend trying to track down The Rev. Sally Wells to thank her but without luck. If any of you know her or happen to be in or around Salisbury in the coming days do please pass on or warmest wishes to her and her daughter.

It does of course highlight how very important an illustration can be in not only explaining a text but also allowing it to resonate and connect with the reader on a personal level.

Re-Brand at Sommerhonning

Having spent several years immersed in the fascinating culture of Tokyo, Ailsa Johnson decided to capture her experiences through a collection of striking images which span the divide between the real and the imagined.  This collection has received a beautiful review in Pen Magazine which is definitely worth a read.
