What’s up?

Here’s some of what’s new on the blog, ICYMI. Since the last blog round up. and the one before that.

The latest CREATIVE SPACE is on the art of illustration, spotlighting the Caribbean Big Cat books, which you should check out if you’re looking for diverse books for children.

And you can catch up on all the 2021 CREATIVE SPACE installments which are a mix of film, fashion, fine art, art enterprise, art support, lit, more lit, and more. Even earlier ones, like this one from 2020.
