Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman

Of all the eulogies and farewells dedicated to our dearly departed Alan RickmanSir Ian McKellen wrote, "behind [Rickman's] mournful face, which was just as beautiful when wracked with mirth, there was a super-active spirit, questing and achieving, a super-hero, unassuming but deadly effective."

ALAN RICKMAN (1946-2016)
wonder | wander | world bids goodbye to our sweet love. Alan Rickman, a man of such talent and wicked charm, stunning screen and stage presence, life activist and life long legend.

Alison Worman: thinking with your hands

Alison Worman is our inspiration for this week. Her sketchbooks and art objects take our meandering thoughts in unexpected directions.

'What Was Once John's Yellow Mug', 2009

Alison fills her sketchbooks with scraps of paper and fabric, stitches, and lace. Often the finished book is so thick it can't fully close.

The Second Black Sketchbook

She is a Book Arts genius and is even featured on one of our favourite blogs, The Jealous Curator.

It's deceptively simple work that inspires us to be looser and more relaxed in our own art journals.

David Bowie : David Jones

On January 10, two days after his 69th birthday, David Bowie left, leaving us bereft in our loss.

The attendant outpouring of grief and eulogies was immediate and unstoppable.  

Just as each and every one of us found something unique in David's music, we welcome 
everyone’s celebration of his life as they see fit. ~ David Bowie Official Site
