living with hattie stewart is an art book made from 32 removable prints, with interview questions (and answers) throughout. i really like this easily digestible format, and it really lets the images shine. hatties work is bold and colourful and this certainly comes through!
though i’ve not seen her work in person, the colour looks very well reproduced and detail is well preserved. the semi matte, thick paper does an excellent job of letting her work ‘pop’ which is what is needed with this sort of artwork.
now, obviously i’m a fan of such colourful, graphic illustration, but besides that, i really enjoyed reading through the interview. they really can help you see further into someone else’s word and imagination. some of the answers are short and to the point, and others more in depth. i feel like i get a good sense of hatties personality through her answers, too. continue reading…

coming and going is a (childrens) book written by isabel minhós martins and illustrated by bernado carvalho.
it includes two things i’ve always been interested in: facts about animals and nature, and lots of colour. i would have loved this book as a child. at almost 30 now, i definitely do.
it shows how animals and humans travel the globe, and the essence of why. it’s certainly a book that makes you think about your place on this planet, and how you can be more aware of your (and THE) environment. continue reading…
