Jonathan Leach’s Celebratory Dinosaurs for Still-Moving DJs

Jonathan Leach was commissioned by Still-Moving DJs to illustrate a promotional piece of artwork to celebrate their seven year anniversary.
Still-Moving DJs  Jonathan Leach
The fantastical image features the two DJs riding on the backs of dinosaurs – one of their favourite things. The DJs can often be found surrounded by toy dinosaurs on the decks at their gigs so naturally they loved Jonathan’s portrayal of them. Still-Moving DJs are currently preparing for The Larmer Tree Festival in Salisbury.

Nicola O’Byrne’s ‘Open Very Carefully’ Kick Starts a Whole Generation of Young Readers

Following an award studded 2014 for Bright star Nicola O’Byrne - including the coveted Waterstones Children’s Book Prize - this year was already set to consist of gleaming prosperity. The BookTrust‘s Booktime story for 2015 – that is to be gifted to 700,000 reception-aged children in UK – is Nicola O’Byrne’s debut picture book, Open Very Carefully (Nosy Crow).

OpenVeryCarefullyCoverhighres

The book with bite, which was brokered by Bright M.D Vicki Willden-Lebrecht, has been a seemingly huge success with children of all ages, their parents & schools the world over. Kate Wilson, Managing Director of Nosy Crow, aptly describes why the book has been received so well by young readers -

‘With its invitation to interactivity, its humour and its stylish but accessible illustration, Open Very Carefully seems to have really wide appeal’

The Nosy Crow book, which is to be distributed to all UK school children aged 4-5, will be accompanied by a Booktime pack that provides guidance & notes for parents aimed at installing the importance of reading with their children.

 With a reach of two million children & families, the BookTrust is Britain’s largest reading charity. As the organisation’s 10th Booktime story to be gifted to every reception child in UK, Open Very Carefully will no doubt continue to grace the shelves of more and more young readers this year – especially with the availability of 13 languages.

Larry Rostant’s portraits of Jimmy Edgar for DJ magazine

They broke the mould when they made this issue’s cover star Jimmy Edgar.

Larry Rostant's portrait of Jimmy Edgar is psychedelic, freaky, funky — and that’s not just his music. With a life well lived that’s reflected in the extraordinary scope of his albums and DJ sets, he’s not afraid to be different — and celebrates that difference.

A celebration of creativity, freedom and diversity is something that dance music should be about, but is something all too often lost in the chase for filthy lucre. Jimmy’s a star like they used to make, someone with something to say, and it seems that now more of us are listening than ever.

Poor Alfredo is a frog who just can't dance. No matter how hard his best friend Marty (a smooth talking fly) tries to teach him all the fancy dance moves - all he ever does is Jump! Jump! Jump! It's just not cool!  Or… is it?

Garry Walton – Channel Shore

Garry Walton was delighted to be asked to illustrate the cover of  ‘Channel Shore’ by Tom Fort. Garry worked with the design team at Simon and Schuster to create the cover art for Tom’s previous title ‘The A303 - Highway To The Sun’ and was thrilled to be asked to illustrate this next book in the series.

‘Channel Shore’ takes the reader on a fascinating, discursive journey from east to west, to find out what the English Channel means to us and what is so special about the English seaside. We love Garry’s cover illustration - it conjours up memories of lazy summer days at the beach!
