Happy first day of autumn! Jane Ann Hancock's 1838 sampler, which she worked when she was 10 years old, is getting us into the autumnal spirit. It's all about those green, yellow, and brown tones!

The artist constantly on my mind right now, Józef Wilkoń. Lord knows I'm about to get the inks out again. I remember looking at his work, ten years ago.. as a sixth form student... and I'm back now more than before !

Charlie Harper's wasn't all over the gift shops or anything yet then, i think he'd gotten a little lost to time, but we were in animation school & Samurai Jack was the new thing & we heard an interview with Scott Wills where they talked about Charlie Harper & it was a big deal

Was fun to talk to Jon Klassen @burstofbeaden about his hand painted cover, the Canadian shield and terrifying @thenfb short films.
