Rachel Levit20. November 2013
Rachel Levit draws in the kind of style that I really like, detailed in it’s simplicity and cool in it’s content. Rachel is a Brooklyn based illustrator born and raised in Mexico City.
I would love one of her dotted faces, they’re too awesome.
Her blog, if you’re interested…
Johnny Neon and his Zombie Durrants.15. November 2013
I have a very talented friend called Johnny Neon who draws like no ones business. He is so good and so fast at drawing (I’ve had the pleasure of watching him draw) that it makes me want to punch him the neck whenever I see him because I wish I had half the amount of drawing skill in one finger.
A while ago he drew a series of zombie pictures, they were all of famous dead people that were pretty damn awesome, so a few months ago I commissioned him to create a zombie portrait of Shane and I for our 5 year anniversary. Five years is apparently represented by silverware, so he skilfully put together this drawing of us, zombified, side by side, holding a silver knife and fork. He made it up to the size of this antique frame that I have had for ages and when he was done I got it fitted and wrapped for Shane.
I think it came out amazingly and Shane loves it as much as I do, so now not only do we have a painting of us looking like the Kardashians, but like crazy-ass zombies too. Too awesome. Thanks Johnny face, I hate you, I love you.

These are some of his zombie drawings from his Famous Dead series.
Jean de Wet12. November 2013
Jean de Wet is one of my all time favourite South African illustrators. I own quite a few of hie pieces and slowly but surly we’re getting to hang them all up. This morning I unpacked this little set that we bought at his last joint exhibition in JHB. They are 4 original drawings of the sweetest houses, in fact I would kill to live in a house shaped like one of these little guys.
I have included some of his latest line creations so you can ooh and aaa over just how much detail goes into one of his pieces. So good!

These paintings are by Megan Howland, she was born in 1985 in Massachusetts, and grew up in New Hampshire. She currently lives and works in Portland, ME.
Her portraits are great and I would hang any one of them up in my house, but the first one below is my favourite. It makes me think about how life can be so beautiful sometimes, but so overwhelming too.
Plate collection05. November 2013
We have been collecting plates for a little while now, lately we’ve tried to find one every time we go somewhere on holiday, that doesn’t always work out because what we want is quite specific, but every now and then we stumble across something cool, like the dog comes from Japan and the McBess meat plate comes from Paris. Anyway we unpacked all the ones we have so far, which we are getting ready to hang, when I see them altogether, they make me very happy.
Maria Lebedeva04. November 2013
Maria Lebedeva is currently exhibiting at Wolves. Her work is fine and delicate and all watercolours and ink. I hope my photos do them justice because you really have to see these little pieces of painted craftsmanship in real life to appreciate just how wonderful they are. Her stuff will be up until the end of the month if you are keen to come have a look…
I haven’t photographed everything, there is still a lot more to see, but if anyone is interested in any pieces below, just drop me a mail email@example.com
Her work is super well priced and apart from 3 limited edition prints, everything else is original.
