I'm not sure if I have posted about Gemma Correll before, but I am a huge fan. You may recognise her as the illustrator of the famous 'pugs not drugs' t-shirts that are being copied everywhere. Her illustrations are so cute and bound to make you chuckle. The spider below is my favourite but head over to her blog to see a whole load more. She also has a really great website

Today the postman bought me the latest copy of Anorak, their animal edition. I don't know if you've come across Anorak before, it is 'the happy mag for kids' and full of beautiful illustrations from a whole variety of illustrators. This issue the front cover is from Studio Tipi, who have also illustrated some of the features inside. But go and buy yourself a copy and see for yourself.

They also have a beautiful blog full of pretty and inspiring things.
