It's not often that you get a brief which asks you to design a bear equivalent of Ray Winstone with the swagger of a chain-smoking cockney for 7 to 9 year olds! Kristyna Litten rose to the challenge and came up with this brilliant wrap-a-round cover for Mr McCool, published by Egmont this month.

Read For Good

Keith Robinson's work for the charity 'Read For Good' continues with this latest set of illustrations. The images which are for a variety of uses such as bookmarks, certificates, sponsorship cards and posters, are to communicate the pleasure kids can get from reading. Last year, Keith designed the mascot and logo for the charity; Jamie and the orange balloon can be seen 'unifying' this set of images.
"'Read for Good' improves children's lives by encouraging and enabling children in primary and secondary schools to enjoy the powerful positive effects of reading for pleasure. In doing so these children also fundraise fantastic sums of money - to help seriously ill children across the UK."
