Sunday links #5

1 Graham Roumieu
Graham's simple looking illustrations are whimsical and well-observed. I love this ridiculously anthropomorphic cartoon above.

2 Scout Pare Phillips
From illustrations to photographs, Pare Phillips' work is sublime. My recent favourites are the Impressions series, where she's captured the marks left on the body by clothing. Sensual in some places, straightlaced in others, she brings 'parts of life' to life.

3 A Midsummer Night's Dream 
Ever since I was small (I've always been a big reader), I've loved Shakespeare. And having studied more than four plays in secondary school alone, I've got a lot of time for the big man. On a wander round London last year, we stumbled across the original Rose Theatre - the original home of Shakespeare's productions. Rediscovered fairly recently, it's looking for funding and awareness to bring it back to life - but you can visit the museum and see the very foundations (!!!) where it all started. Following a long, long dream, I've just booked some summer tickets to see A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Globe. As always, there's plenty of performances and plays - all from as little as £5 - so why not get lost in Shakespeare for an afternoon?
