Dear friend and fellow UoP graduate, the mega talented London based illustrator Lucy Dalzell has recently had a lovely pop up book published by Cicada Books. Designed by Corina Fletcher and written by Michael Palin and Dan Cruickshank, the book explores the history of London’s King’s Cross station and the surrounding area from the Victorian age through to today. Design Week published an online article about Lucy’s work and have some great images of the pop up book, so I strongly recommend checking them out.
I’ve loved her artwork ever since university and wanted to share her wonderful work with you. Go buy her book immediately!
I wanted to share this super cute collaborative piece The Everywhere Project. Designed to pay tribute to the classic folk song “I’ve Been Everywhere”, a select group of designers and illustrators are invited to create luggage labels, each reperesenting one of the 92 locations that appear in the American version of the song. Each artist shares their take on a place they’ve been, have connections with, or a place they only recently learned about.
The description of the project s featured on the website, saying “The song was written in 1959 by Australian songwriter Geoff Mack using Australian place names. It was later adapted to North American (and a few South American) locations by Hank Snow in 1962 and it hit number one on the country music charts. It has since been recorded by many artists including Johnny Cash and Willy Nelson.”
The project is curated by Adrian Walsh, a designer and illustrator based out of Southern California.

Whilst walking through London last week, I came across this rather cleverly applied Graffiti. Created by ‘washing’ the stencil graphics away from the pavement, the artist leaves a temporary composition behind. The more people see it, the quicker it disappears. I also liked the contradiction and anti rebel nature. On further inspection, I found out that the graphic was actually a viral campaign by Sony.
