Sue Todd: Spotlight Interview via HAI

We’ve not done an LCS interview for a long time. Our last one was actually with Paul Shipper in 2015. We do have several incomplete interviews that seem to be gathering dust, but we’ve always had a zero pressure policy on completing them. When we get round to it, we will pick up the torch and start interviewing our favourite illustrators and creatives again. In the meantime, we have a lovely batch of short spotlight interviews with some wonderful illustrators over on Hire an Illustrator. The most recent one was with the talented Sue Todd and there are plenty more to check out. What’s your favourite sandwich filling? LOL.

Matt Dixon’s Transmissions 3

Robots are awesome and they always have been! There are only a few days left to nab yourself a copy of Matt Dixon’s robot art book, Transmissions 3 via Kickstarter. So there’s no time to dawdle, visit kck.st/2kQtlLC and make a pledge.

Matt’s robot illustrations really are amazing and so much fun. He’s already met his target, so it’s just a case of pledging now and waiting for the book to be printed up and delivered.

The Art of Dan May

SUBMERGED (LIMITED EDITION PRINT) by Dan May

It’s been a while since we mentioned our friend Dan May. He’s such a talented artist and deserves all of the coverage we can give him, so we thought it was about time we mentioned his current line of prints and original art. Have a nose at danmay.bigcartel.com and if you decide to buy anything we’re pretty sure it won’t disappoint. We already have several of his pieces on our walls, we’ve even got a couple of originals. He should really trademark his tiny little brush strokes.

Miyazaki – An Art Show Tribute

Louise Evans - The Miyazaki show at Spoke Art Gallery

Jonathan Edwards and Felt Mistress, two of our favourite artists, are part of a group tribute show at SPOKE art space in San Francisco. If we were on the right continent we would have been at the opening, so if you’re able to make it, you really ought to check out the work on display. It’s not a show to be missed!

Jonathan Edwards - The Miyazaki show at Spoke Art Gallery

Spoke Art is proud to present the Miyazaki Art Show – a whimsical showcase of over fifty artists from around the world celebrating the films of Japanese film-maker and animator Hayao Miyazaki. Taking inspiration from the Studio Ghibli director’s classic films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Ponyo to his lesser known work like The Wind Rises and Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess, each artist has created unique works inspired by Miyazaki’s imaginative universe.

Please join us for the Miyazaki Art Show, opening Saturday, February 4th, with an opening night reception from 6pm-9pm. Costumes are encouraged and some artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, February 25th, 2017.
