Lucy Joy Oldfields
work is largely driven by her love of eye catching objects and surface decoration. She tends to enjoy herself most when working in fine detail and trying to approach drawing with an uninhibited and non mechanical technique. Like us, Lucy is all about the charms of hand drawn wobbly lines.
Lucy has got some lovely treats in her Etsy Shop
at the moment and tonnes more projects and beautiful illustrations on her blog
We spied David Ryan Robinsons
work for the first time a couple of years ago whilst still at Salford Uni. We were running our Cheap Affair art and craft fairs at Islington Mill
and Ryan held a stall with some other students selling their work, wares and home made cookies.
Ryan has been on the illustration / graphic design scene for a couple of years now and has racked up quite a few impressive projects including work for
becks beers, the bbc, tba magazine, the Cornerhouse
and Afflecks Palace
He has also had exhibitions all around the manchester area, including font bar (oxford road), odder bar (oxford road), nexus art café
and again Islington mill (salford). He has also recently illustrated the “laugh your socks off” celebrity joke book, released for sports relief.
As if all of that wasn't enough to keep you interested, Ryan is also in the process of finishing off the album cover and a small illustration booklet for Allie Moss
' new album, Late Bloomer, which will be available instore from around mid-April.
