This is the delicate beautiful work of Timothy Karpinsky I love his style, pallet and his ideas, he has some wonderful work for you to see. Timothy as well as being a prolific artist also works as art director for Gnu Snowboards at Mervin Manufacturing. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.

'Spence's Donkey Lifter' by Poet, filmmaker and painter Paul Yates , from Belfast. I adore this painting of a man carrying Donkey, I love donkeys, and it reminds me of man handling our greyhound.

Today there was a whole line of snow angels on a bank looking amazing. So Hine's 'Squid Snow Angel' caught my eye and made me laugh. Hine makes wonderful plush items and incredible Halloween outfits! I do love the creative way that she and many other talented artists introduce their creations to the world. Hine Mizushima's creativity has been in painting, illustrating and now plush and animation, enjoy.
Here are some examples of Angie Pickman's incredible patience and intricate work. Angie is a paper cutter, the tininess of the top cut is phenomenal and the central photo is a bee shadow puppet with movable parts, wonderful !

If there is one book I covet it is The little boy and the Big Fish by Max Velthuijs, but I'm wondering if I just have a thing about fish in the bath.
Oh dear! 'A journey around my skull's' series of neglected illustrators presented itself to me today. Here are two of Will's images of the Austrian illustrator, Helger Aichinger's illustrations from 'Jonah and the Great Fish' by Clyde Robert Bulla (Cromwell, 1970). Oh Dear! I've just ordered an Elephant a mouse and a flea...
Last year at the park I listened and watched in wonder, as a swan on the pond pushed its way through the ice to the shore, the sound was amazing.
Marcus has some wonderful work prints and collages.

Here is the incredible work of Jessica Quinn, Jessica is a textile artist who works with wool and plush, but I adore her line drawings and her fantastically strange and unique imagination.
A young Chinese illustrator who used to be an electrical engineer, these examples of Antony Xu Jin's work have the order and colour of Indian Miniatures, and they are appealingly other, if you know what I mean, anyway I think they are great.
