UK Exhibition: They Walk Among Us

image

The latest solo exhibition from artist and children’s book illustrator Sarah Underwood.

In this showcase, Sarah returns to a regular theme, a lifelong love of animals.

Her menagerie is playfully personified in various ways to hold a mirror up to our own personalities and ask, if animals led our lives, would we treat them any differently?

Denise Gallagher was commissioned to create an illustration of Pinocchio based on the original Italian fairy tale by Carlo Collodi. The novel, “The Adventures of Pinocchio” is dark and tumultuous with many twists and turns. Denise used imagery from the tale to create an illustration that captures the spirit of this whimsical yet grim story.

It seems every week fewer and fewer people submit news to the LCS. Which is fine, people’s habits change. This doesn’t mean the LCS is going away any time soon. Over the last few years our focus has moved away from us being an art news portal and towards being an outlet for our products and projects. We run Mail Me Art and Showcase 100 along with offering hosting services for our users and we’re also constantly updating our blogroll with new websites. We’ve got upcoming projects in the form of a new zine and we’re very excited to be launching a clothing brand next year. Products, publications, exhibitions and events are our future and that’s what we’re doing. It takes time to move from being a little website with user generated content to a group of people who curate exhibition, publish books and create merchandise, but we believe it’s worth the sweat and tears. We’re here for the long haul.

A little while ago we said a sad goodbye to Illustrationmundo, it was fantastic website and it’s going to be missed. Nate Williams was kind enough to let us have the old IM artist interviews for reposting on the LCS, along with the ICONIC Podcasts. We’ll hopefully get these up on the site in the coming months for posterity and for people new to the world of illustration to discover and love. If there was a hall of fame for contributions to the online illustration community, Nate would be in there along with John Martz (DRAWN!) and Jason Arber (Pixelsurgeon).

The Little Chimp Society is a still a community and everyone is welcome to join. Users can still submit news and we’ll share the pieces and announcements that grab our attention. We’re growing and looking to the future, but that doesn’t mean we’ll forget about the talented people who got us here in the first place. If anything our evolution will allow us to give back and further connect with the thousands of followers and fanatic members of the LCS. As Dr. Emmett Brown said “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads“.
