A collaborative project by British illustrators. The project started back in September 2012 with a book and the use of the post office. The book is passed to each illustrator for them to contribute their bear to the story.
The project has now come full circle and the final illustrations were added in February 2014.

Little White Lies is a beautiful, independent film magazine. With the perfect combination of reviews and features, illustration and photography, they provide an insight to upcoming films, whether mainstream or independent. With passionate film writers and varied content, it goes against all popular opinion that film critics aren't worth your time. Trust me, Little White Lies is.

Back in 2012, designer Christopher Rouleau launched a project called Alphabet 100. The plan was to create 100 variations of each letter over 52 weeks. I thought this could make an interesting project for designers who want to experiment with font and hand lettering.
The clocks have changed, the weather (fingers crossed) is looking brighter and the daffodils are popping up. It's definitely spring and Easter is just around the corner.
Celebrate the festivities with a range of products designed by Tigerprint for Marks and Spencer. If you don't have a sweet tooth there are lots of crafty goods, you could grow a sunflower or paint a wooden bird house or decorate your house with bunting.
Lydia Coventry is currently in her final year studying Illustration at Plymouth University. Lydia is a collage illustrator so her main process is making fun images by cutting out shapes from textured or patterned paper that she makes.
She loves illustrating and writing for young children which is why a lot of her work focuses on witty, colourful and fun characters. Lydia have always loved colour and pattern making and hope to pursue it further to eventually release her own range of products.
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the previous competition, Black and White Pattern, we received just under 1400 entries. We have started judging the entries and the winner and runners up will be announced next week.
