Ohh Deer competition winners were announced today! Two of my expected winners won 🙂 I would definitely buy something from Lorna Scobie (whom I’ve already talked about) and James Barker (of course those masks caught my eye right away among competition entries!). Congrats!
Wandering around ohh deer competition submissions I just fell in love with this two illustrators talent:

Planeta Tangerina was elected as Best Children’s Publishers of 2013 for Europe at Bologna Children’s Book Fair. I’m an absolute fan of Planeta Tangerina so I’ll show you my favorite 3 books from them (just nottest now that they’re all from the same illustrator — Bernardo Carvalho).
Have you read any book of Planeta Tangerina?
Do you have any book from any other winner publisher? I’m curious to meet them too!

Selfless Portraits is a very nice project where people around the world draw a facebook profile photo of some stranger. After you enter, you’ll need to choose the profile photo you wish to see drawn and a random photo of someone around the globe will be delivered to you. Then you’ll have 48 hours to draw it and only afterwards your drawn picture will be sent to you.
Hello Europe! is a project made by three friends. What’s their ideia? They’ll be going around Europe for 100 days in an RV, stopping in several cities and in each one they’ll go looking for street artists and choosing the 3 best artists by facebook votation.
By their words:
“Sometimes the best artists hide and find where least expected. A less visible art in front of everyone with so much meaning.
Sometimes the streets are flooded with art, music, color. With charismatic faces and talent which makes us stop and observe. Forgetting the rush, the stress and the bills to pay. We awaken our senses to receive the emotions they are offering us without knowing for sure they will receive something in return.”
I’ll be posting news here as well!
