London based Gordon Armstrong AKA Mr Gordo is an illustrator, or rather ‘doodler’. His playful style and approach to design is refreshingly care free and unbridled of the slightest notion of giving one single fuck.

Craig Atkinson is an artist, photographer and publisher based in the North West of England. In 2005 Craig founded Café Royal Books, a publishing house featuring generally, but not exclusively, British documentary photography focusing on aspects of change from 1970—2000.
Apart from publishing, Craig’s artistic practice is centred around people and place, specifically Brutalist architectural groupings as sculptural masses. Craig is also a lecturer in Fine Art, Drawing and Image Making and Illustration at the University of Central Lancashire.

Doodling time takes on another dimension when Aaron Dickenson spends his time scribbling on 3×3 yellow Post-its and printer paper. We examine his zany doodles and celebrity homages with delight:
Doodles explores the realm of the subconsciousness, the language of archetypal dreams and universal symbols. Combining an absence of linear perspective and mixed media compositions, he guides the viewer through a primitive, rhythmic, narrative.
Doodles communicates through the history of symbolic signs, found objects and mysticism. His
intentional and emotive distortions of the figure are reminiscent of indigenous Folk Art found in South America, Mexico and Native cultures. There is a constant rhythm pulsing underneath the body of his work resulting in detailed, repetitive patterns throughout the figuration and landscapes. Doodles also works in a variety of scale ranging from large outdoor murals to small intricate drawings.
The artist recently returned from a three-month trip traveling to and throughout Mexico. The experiences of his voyage are translated through his current body of work featured in his upcoming solo show, Astral Rise.
