Player portraits

One thing the lockdown has given some of us is the opportunity to indulge in creative pursuits.

MIFA – Missing In (the) Football Album – is the brainchild of designer, illustrator & art director Dave Will. Originally conceived in 2018 when Dave had the idea to illustrate all 254 players missing from the Official...

The colour, texture and sense of fun that Lee’s style has makes it perfect for attracting families to the RHS Gardens to take part in the varied activities on offer, and maybe pick up some gardening knowledge along the way! We asked Lee a few questions to find out more about his creative process and what inspires him. 1. How would you describe your approach...

Kevin was fortunate enough to be able to attend last night’s talk by comics legend Dave Gibbons at The Lightbox gallery and museum in Woking. It was a great opportunity to hear from a man who has been involved in the creation of some of the most iconic characters in comics, from his work on 2000AD to Dr Who, Green Lantern, Superman, Batman, Martha Washington and, of course, Watchmen. The illustrated lecture on his career had an educational focus to it, from Dave’s own schooldays –...

It is very rare we get the chance to go out as a whole bunch of us from Premm, so when Pick Me Up opened its doors at Somerset House for 2016 we were all very much up for it! I mean who doesn’t love seeing what the cultural arts have to offer each year, especially when some bring such a smile to your face like these Little ‘Floam Buddy’s’ did to Jess’. (Pictured: Floam Buddy TRIO, by Julian Glander) We all had our favourite pieces, Sophie was particularly taken with these beautiful Pastel...
