Learn to Speak Cat – Review

Before we moved house earlier in the year, I used to get the bus to the post office three times a week to post out orders. The best thing about those bus trips was checking out the latest Learn To Speak Cat cartoon in the Metro newspaper. They always made me laugh. Anthony’s pictures aren’t …

Lo-Fi Photo Fun – Adam Bronkhorst

Daz and I love photography, especially with lo-fi cameras like the Lomo LC-A, Supersampler and any other film cameras we can get our hands on. When our friend Adam asked if he could use some of our photos in his new book we were thrilled! Daz’s cow photo even made it to the cover. Lo-fi …

Childrens Book Illustrations

I’ve been researching childrens books recently, thinking about maybe designing my own. I love the idea but when it comes to making up stories I am rather lacking so it might be a while. We went to a few carboot sales over the weekend and I got lots of lovely books, most for only 20 …
