Plugged In

Do we even remember what it's like to plug out? We're all in danger of our hands morphing into tech devices like something out of a Black Mirror episode. With this in mind we are feeling combative today - it is with sheer delight that we share these charming images from David De Las Heras. Painted for a multipart feature titled ethics, it's about making hard and soft decisions, making these decisions with knowledge and how this knowledge can create it’s own problems and create moral dilemmas. We've worked them into a step by step guide to plugging out. This thought has curled a smile onto our lips.

Eat Less Meat

Harry Tennant's latest illustration for Liberation France for an interesting article about human's dominance over animals throughout history. A rather beautiful way to preach about eating less meat and moderate our greed! We think there's a lot to be said for moderative living - thanks guys!

Yoga at the Bar?

Paul Oakley depicts the calmest yoga barman we've ever seen for the new year issue of imbibe magazine. We're bringing him out now as a 'throwback' to make you all consider your new years resolutions, How cruel. But mostly because our office is getting pretty good at the yoga / pilates classes so we wanted to toast an illustrated cocktail to our limber studio team! Of course we've always been able to balance a glass no problem, sometimes more than one...

Jakob Exhibits

Our favourite cookie monster and seriously talented artist Jakob Hinrichs is exhibiting his work in France...

 

"The Jakob Hinrichs exhibition, in partnership with the Franco-German Center for Provence, offers for the first time in France a broad overview of the artist's talent through the numerous preparatory drawings, sketches and original plates of his adaptations, but also Personal works and projects that remained unpublished in the hexagon, as his very nice contribution to the collective work A Graphic Cosmogony . The idea of ​​Jakob: revisit - nothing less - the myth of the creation of the world ... in 7 pages of course."

The Taming of the Shrewd

We have a world full of digital apps that give you an answer in milliseconds and a brain overlaoded with funny cat videos - who better to turn to for a running commentary on our bizarre world than our very own Stephen Collins. We can't help but LOL at his shrewd genius. Here's a selection of some of our favourite comic strips for The Guardian Weekend.

Memory

The modern mind is full of useful and not so useful information that we absorb and store and often struggle to find again. We're very impressed with Harry Tennant's latest concept piece for Libération FR on 'Memory in Psychoanalysis' - an inisghtul article too!

Minimal

We're pouring over the new illustrations of Mario Wagner today. Utilising abstraction and pairing negative shapes, Mario creates effortless graphic dynanism. They are ridiculously pleasing to gawp at, so make sure you check out his folio while you're here.
