The twelve winning artists have been announced!
Self motivation… something we all struggle with from time to time. Sometimes it’s just so much easier to watch TV, tidy your room or sit down the pub than it is to get on with that all important task demanding your attention. What you need is an inspirational calendar to get you through the year, full of illustrations to keep you going, pick you up and make you laugh!
The calendar completely sold out last year, selling in places such as MAGMA Books and the ICA Bookshop, as well as our own LMNOP shop. Our plan is to bigger and better that this year, getting even more printed and stocking it in even more shops.
From the submissions, 12 artworks have been selected for inclusion in the calendar. From those 12, there will be one overall winner who will be the lucky recipient of their very own Riso Gocco kit, imported straight from Japan. The overall winner will be announced when the calendar has been printed in a couple of weeks.

LMNOP Publish Me! winner announced…
Big thanks to all our entrants, it was fantastic seeing so much amazing work - and everyone who voted and commented on their favourite entry too. We will now be working with Ian to get his book published and it will be released late October with pre-orders available soon.
David Shrigley, Hayward Gallery.
This month we caught the end of the David Shrigley Exhibition. Shrigley’s humorous approach laughed at snobby conceptual art and attempted to show the world for what it really is- one big joke!
His weird and wonderful combinations of taxidermy and stick men had sinister undertones that fitted alongside his tongue and cheek illustrations.
We hope you all made the show; it was good to go to an exhibition, which laughed at art instead of taking it too seriously.
If you like Shrigley’s work then have a look at the cartoons from Devine Comedy,
In the Box Exhibition, The Brighton Fringe Festival
As I hope everyone in Brighton knows the Fringe Festival is now on. So this week we took the opportunity to go to the In the Box Exhibition held at the print studio, Ink Spot Press. The exhibition showed a number of different artists responses to creating art within a box. It was a colourful display, which allowed you to peer into different worlds that the artist had created. It’s open throughout the month, so it could be fun for you to get involved and visit it.
LMNOP PUBLISH ME! Do you have an illustrated / photographic / typographic book which you would like to be published?
We are looking for artists / designers / illustrators to work with us to produce an exciting new publication. We are looking for people who are using illustration, photos and design in interesting ways to tell a story or engage an audience. Words are also allowed, although we would like the focus to be on the visuals.
It should be a work of art in its own right!
You can submit your project directly to our website here, successful nominations will be given their own page on the site.
Once nominated the public are able to ‘vote’ for your work to be published. There more votes a work receives the more likely we are to publish it!
