Usually the final window on your chocolate advent, contained a larger chocolate, quickly to be scoffed down before breakfast. So in the same spirit, I have put up our final advent in the early hours of the morning, with a special treat. Not only does this little illustration animate, but for an added bit of fun, the first person to comment with the name of the artist wins an art print. (its easy really, its Christmas, and I am feeling generous).
Thank you to all our readers and supporters this year, have an awesome Christmas and new year. We look forward to bringing you bigger and better things in the new year.
UK illustrator, Steven Topley, has created this cool number 23. I’ve heard they got early snow in London this year, they are so lucky, those of us down under meanwhile are sweltering in the heat, feeling more like a melted snow man.
You can see more of Steven’s work here.
Brett Manning has illustrated this gorgeous, cozy little 22 for our artist advent calendar. Brett’s is one of the featured artists in our zine (which is available for purchase). You can buy her art online or read her blog to find out more about her.
