If You Don’t Already Love Luke Drozd’s Art You Will Soon

I’m indebted to Luke Drozd for supplying some amazing prints for the charity event me and colleagues organised recently. I was particularly excited to receive donations from Luke as I’m a huge fan. Not only is Luke generous he also produces some truly lovely screen prints.

Judging by recent updates to his blog & Facebook page, he’s also very busy at the moment. He has an exhibition of fine art at York College Gallery, he’s just published a book of comic strips, Dark Days and Other Tales (complete with button badge),  and he’s created some lovely screen printed band posters, including gorgeous festival posters for New Order & Graham Coxon (pictured below – images courtesy of Luke Drozd).

Luke posts on various social media sites so you can follow what he’s up to & get your debit card at the ready when a new poster is released. Why not like him on Facebook  or Twitter right now. He happens to be pretty damn funny as well so you can’t go wrong.

Alice Potter Illustration

Alice Potter very generously donated one of her prints for the craft fair me and colleagues held at the University of Birmingham recently. Along with the print she included the adorable postcard pictured below with a personal message written on the back. Since it was addressed to me I thought it would be ok to bring the postcard home:), and it’s now taken pride of place on my fireplace. I’m thinking it would look even better if I were to decoupage the frame – so that may be a little job for the weekend!

Isabel Reyes Feeney’s Tea For Two

Me and Phil recently spent a week in Madrid. We found some cool shops around the Malasana and Chueca districts, including a  number of comic book shops, and craft and vintage boutiques. In one of the boutiques, Nest, I picked up the postcards below, by Madrid-based illustrator Isabel Reyes Feeney. Adorable aren’t they?

Check out her Etsy shop to see her other postcards and stationary.
