Beautiful Children’s Book Illustrations At The UCLAN Creative Festival

Yesterday I popped in to university (UCLAN) to have a quick look around this years Creative Festival. On show was the degree work of the universities art and design courses. There was a lot of fantastic work that stood out but ignoring my natural tendency to lean towards the design of the built environment I have to say my favourite work was that of an Illustrator Naomi Jones.

Naomi’s final degree work included a book that she had written and illustrated herself. Below are a series of images from the book that I got off the artists website.

The illustrations are absolutely charming! Clean, quirky and with almost a 3D feel this is a children’s book any kid would love in their collection (or at least their parents would!)

As a UCLAN student myself any chance to promote another student is great! Simply click on any of the images above to view the artists further work and contact details.

Preston Graffiti 2

Walking in to university today (well to the pub to be more precise) I noticed that the graffiti on the side of the Ship Inn had changed once again.


The geometric patterns in this piece show a big change in style compared to the previous graffiti work I showed you last month. I wonder if the piece is by the same artist. UCLAN has a great creative community, I would love to know more about this particular artist!
