Project: Oscar the Onion – A short story by Matt Witt, illustrated by David Litchfield.
We are proud to present the latest update on the splendid collaboration between Matt Witt and David Litchfield, an illustrated book about a special little Onion named Oscar.
Matt says: I am so excited to see the first colour illustrations for the book. David has been working so hard and the results are magnificent. The image above is still a work in progress, it is a detail from a double page illustration. We will be reveling more over the next couple of months.
We would love to know what you guys think of this image, please send comments / feedback to email@example.com

A gallery of all of last month’s Creatures in one place, for your enjoyment!
Artist: Daria Hlazatova – Ukraine
This week creature received the first edition of Nosorog zine, a magical little journey into the creative mind of Daria Hlazatova.
Resembling something you might discover in the magazine rack at Gandalf’s house, this zine includes such quirky features as: An interview with Mozart’s wig, Holiday’s in Mordor, personal ads from fairytale creatures, a self penned horoscopes section. Not to mention a selection of short stories, all written by Daria and accompanied by her elegant decorative illustrations.
With a mysterious black cover and yellowing pages adding to its fairytale charm, this zine displays a conscious blurring of the boundaries between art, illustration, creative writing and self publication, with influences from theatre and performance art in there too.
As with all of Daria’s work Nosorog is the product of an overactive imagination and showcases her keen creative instinct. She adopts a combination of creative influences and inspirations and stirs them with her own blend of inward exploration to transport the reader towards a window of insight into her imaginative processes.
Its greatest charm is that you can tell she really enjoyed making it; brimming with love, care and creativity. We hope issue 2 is on its way.
