Rosie James

I have never seen anything like this before and after attempting to stitch recently for the Book Fair I really admine Rosie James work. She stitches everyday scenes, normally involving people, in such a human way. They look realistic and so detailed. I really like how you can see the off cuts of thread and the simplicity of the black thread against the white linen. On some of her works she used fabric also which adds another amazing element and makes the whole thing seem more complex. I prefer the purely stitched pieces and really want one!

Don't Panic

Don't Panic have a poster competition where anyone can enter and get their poster made and distributed to loads of people! It's a good idea. But... it is also pretty difficult to know what poster they would like from a one word brief. Here are some of my favourite posters which have won in the past. As you can see they are all very different and there does not seem to be a preferred style.

- Nature by Sam Ashton

- Home by Matt Macgregor Glen

- Foreign by Ferry Gouw
