Kate Moross and co. at Outline Editions (yep, more affordable art)


...just some of the exciting fresh names in illustration currently gracing the walls of the new Outline Editions pop-up gallery/online shop for graphic artists.


I went to the wildlife-themed launch of the new pop-up in Soho last week - where I fell in love with this insane-could-be-menacing print (top) by the artist, Claire Scully (£85 for an A4, limited edition print).

She explained her inspiration for the work came from the urban surrounds of the house in London that she grew up in. Like me, she loves the city she grew up in and sees nature amid the concrete, brutalist architecture - and loves the contrast. Her sister, she said, is a furniture designer, and made her a series of bird feeders in the shape of the local tower blocks to hang in the garden and by the windows - they were seized upon by the squirrels. She used the scenes she observed from her bedroom window to inspire this - among other - works.

As some readers may know, I'm having a few squirrel issues. Love them scampering through the garden, with its tower block backdrop; don't love them living in my roof and galloping and gnawing into my dreams. Somehow this image captures my ambivalent relationship with them.

Check out some of the other interesting, fresh talent in the online shop, or at the gallery (or below) – open until 31 Jan.
