Quick redo of an old panel from 3 years ago (wow, I’ve been drawing this pony for 3 years?!)

There’s a lot of things I could still do better. I overworked the “green fairy” when I could have gone simple… but overall, my line work has improved far more than I thought it had, and I’m quicker at shading than I used to be.

A group known as Book Swaps for London aims to establish a city-wide “book-sharing scheme in London’s tube and train stations.”

Shelves are established in stations, and commuters can use them to pick up books they would like to read and drop off books that they want to give away. This scheme builds on already successful ones such as Bookcrossing and local pub and hostel swap schemes.

Plug Out by James O'Loughlin

Summer is here and what better way to celebrate than by switching off those electronics and embracing the outdoors? At least that’s the question that designer James O’Loughlin asks us to consider with his fabulous new poster.

This is the perfect time to escape the screen,” says James. “As we focus on electronic devices for work, entertainment and socialising the good weather is bringing people out into the parks, beaches and streets and away from the cyber space. In England we rarely have the pleasure of such good weather and this is a great opportunity for us to engage with one another and the world without the need of electronic aids. This needs to be celebrated, so take advantage - plug out and get out.”

Why?

By plugging out and going out for a mere hour each day you could save over 45,000kWh of energy in a single year. That’s enough to power 70 frostless refrigerators for over 300 days each.

How?

Spend a day outdoors, with help from this National Trust guide. Find the best and most exciting destinations for a family day out, near you. Just remember to leave those gameboys at home.
