Monika Melnychuk for Owl Magazine

It always pays to be prepared! Owl Magazine, art directed by Jill Monsod, has put together a pretty handy guide to the 'great outdoors' for their Summer issue. i2i Art illustrator Monika Melnychuk knew quite a bit about this topic already, spending much of her leisure time biking through the backwood trails in Whitehorse, Canada.  

And Monika's illustrations give a humorous twist on those all too important survival lessons. Have a quick read and smile along the way as Monika's characters show us a thing or two about those great outdoors.

Ian Phillips: Banners

Some years back, Ian Phillips created a version of these wonderful editorial headers for a small press magazine.  They were used in the design of the various sections:  Book Review, Letters, Contributors and Editor’s Note.  

Recently I was chatting with Ian about how much I liked these lovely conceptual images and he enthusiastically offered to revisit them in his fresh new style adding text using his new hand created font.  To see more of Ian's updated portfolio please visit here.

 

Voila!  People reviewing books…(chop, chop)

Not so friendly letters to the editor…(shall we say fuming?)

Ian says the Contributor's piece was based on the fact that there’s always one bad egg in the bunch. Can you guess who the spoon is? (clue:  it starts with 'E')

Ah yes!  And there’s always the editor’s note…quite possibly signed in blood!
