(P.S. Extra sneaky treat of Janelle on this week’s Sesame Street)
Very excitingly Barnaby Richards and myself have been working away on a new series of 20 Things books. 20 Mysterious Things is our first title and each book is a collection of illustrations on a theme.
20 Mysterious Things is now available to buy online and a website for Pinch Press will be announced soon!
Here’s a section of my screen print for Print Club London’s Blisters: The Sound Sessions exhibition. Can you guess who it is?
40 artists / 40 prints / £40
You can RSVP to the private view on September 12th here
There are a few new snippets on my website lickens.co.uk
A sneak corner of North America for Lonely Planet Kids
Here’s a corner of the flags of the world I’ve been making for Lonely Planet. There are (as you’d expect) ever so many. Favourites include Nepal and Porto Rico, and towards the end anything that didn’t have a crest on it.
I drew this Maharaja image for The Original Metal Box Company and the wonderful Clifford Richards that you may have seen knocking around here before. Here it is made up and up at Pulse last week. It can be purchased here
PULSE was really fun this year with the first showing of our Illustrators’ Collection and three of our artists made it to the show. L-R: Barnaby Richards with Knight, Alice Lickens with Maharaja and Tor Freeman with Lizards.
Corner of a big book project I’m currently working on!
Last summer I worked on Outdoor Wonderland an activity book for kids with Ivy Press. It was a whopping big project with 80 pages to illustrate and I got to slug my way through beetles, squirrels, limpets and dens as well as instructions on how to make seed bombs and tie dye shirts. Here are a few of the spreads, it’s now widely available from good bookshops and (the dreaded) amazon.
Just before Christmas I made this map for Clear Management’s brand spanking new offices in City of London. The map is being installed on their walls, hopefully they’ll be a few photos of it in situ coming sooon.
This Saturday I’ll be over at the wonderful Dulwich Books reading my book & making tiger, racoon and crocodile masks! It’s at 11am so bring yourself and your seven and under. It’s FREE!
