Ian Miller's latest drawings
Ian has produced a set of coloured drawings on the theme of Gormenghast and they also make me think of some of the work he did for the Tolkein books. I saw them yesterday and found them superbly evocative. Perhaps the forthcoming film of The Hobbit brought it all back to him. The originals are for sale on the Ian Miller website.
A blind auction of children's drawings
In association with her exhibition last week, Olivia Lomenech Gill asked local school children in Northumberland to produce drawings to commemorate the beginning of the Great War. With their work (and their agreement) she's now organising a silent auction to raise money for Medecins Sans Frontiers, the proceeds to be particularly directed to people in Syria.

The pieces for sale are on the left and they can be identified by letters of the alphabet. I hope you'll consider offering for one of these - and if you'd like to you can find the simple instructions on her blog. Thank you.
Juggling Hats and Harry
Jim Kay's partner, Lou Clark, makes the most beautiful hats. How she manages to do this at the same time as helping Jim out with Harry Potter I don't quite know. But there are more here, should you be looking for something festive or for that special wedding.
Reviews for The Dark Shepherd
There's now a good collection of reviews for Fred Gambino's book. †Quite rightly, it has received a lot of praise. †Susan Omand from The Cult Den sums it up nicely with this . . . "It is the art, the beautiful, sumptuous fantasy art for which you will buy this book.† The richness of colour, the intricacy of detail, it is all almost overwhelming."

More†here, on Fred's website. Also how to buy the book.
Beyond the Horizon - the film
Beyond the Horizon is a new a 34-minute film where John Harris discusses his approach to his science fiction work. It's highly watchable and almost mesmeric. He talks with great ease about his work, partly because he's so confident on the subject but also perhaps because he's being interviewed by his good friend (and extremely talented film-maker), Alex Goss. More of Alex's work can be found on his own website for Magenta Films.
Olivia Lomenech Gill's exhibition in Marlborough
Olivia has been invited by Marlborough College to show a body of work to commemorate the beginning of The Great War. This has great significance to the college as a total of 749 of their boys and men were lost at that time.

She has chosen to produce a collection of prints and drawings which describe the lives of the people left at home at a loss as to what their future holds, and also to continue with the theme of the horses of that period which she began when working on Standing To, the piece commissioned by Michael Morpurgo to be used as the poster image for his War Horse concert.

There is much more on Olivia's blog, and we hope that you will come to the exhibition which will be held at the Mount House Gallery within Marlborough College, SN8 1PA, from 7th November to 12th December 2014. Charles Poulsen's sculpture will also be on show.

Later: The show was a huge success. Here is a review from Tony Millett on Marlborough News Online.
Jim Kay and The Great War
Jim's illustrations for The Great War, published by Walker Books, are beautifully evocative without being too hard-hitting. This book, designed by David McDougal, is full of stories by the best of children's writers, a classic amongst the large amount of books on the subject, and now longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

The combination of Walker and Jim Kay, together with Patrick Ness, has already been the winner of the medal, in 2012. The book, A Monster Calls. Prints from the illustrations are available here.
