This unique illustration is 'The bear scare bear', by Klaas Verplancke. Wonderful to see this inventive use of packaging tape as the basis of an image. Klaas is a very honoured illustrator from Belgium, who has won the Bologna Ragazzi Award, been a finalist for the Hans Christian Andersen Award, and been nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award nine times.

Scott Daniel Ellison paints quite dark, primitive images that intrigue with their surreal pictorial stories.
Scott's earlier works focuses on animal encounters of his childhood and youth. Recently his work has grown in stature and has become more macabre, inspired by Scandinavian folk art, horror films and music.

I have been playing.
There are two humpback whales in the Forth estuary near where I live currently.
As yet, I haven't yet been able to spot them and I would love to. So I consoled myself yesterday by drawing whales and then placing them digitally into my photographs of the Forth. It made me very happy, but hopefully soon I will have the joy of seeing these beautiful creatures in reality.

Sophie Herxheimer's collages in the last few weeks have revealed that limbo of being between the seasons particularly the desperate wait for Spring. Trapped in the black and white time of winter with splashes of colour and hope shining through.
