With her playful patterns and distinctive illustration style, it's clear to see why UK illustrator Jenny Bowers is in such demand throughout the world. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face this Monday morning here are just a few of my favourite pieces. You can see more work on Jenny's Peepshow Collective website.

I really like the typography, illustration and identity work of the exceptionally talented Scottish illustrator and designer Steven Bonner. Steven has a really smart, clean and easy to navigate web site which makes browsing his portfoliio an absolute pleasure. It is refreshing to find someone so talented at both design and illustration in equal measure.
To view more of this amazing work you should really check out Steven's website here.

Muir and Osborne's knitted dogs book 'Best In Show' inspired me so much that I just HAD to know more about the creators and boy I'm so glad that I did a bit of rummaging through their blog and websites to unearth yet another gem. It transpires that Sally Muir is also a superbly talented artist with a spectacular portfollio of dog paintings. For me, it is clear that Sally is what I call a 'true dog person' by the way in which she has captured their personalites and breed traits like only someone who has really connected passionately with dogs could.
Frustratingly when I first discovered Sally's dog portraits I bookmarked my favourite images to blog - today I am kicking myself, as when I returned to her web site it has been substantially edited and has very few dog images and none of the ones I wanted to show you today! I've just spent the best part of an hour going over my history from weeks ago on Sally's site in hope of pulling up some the old files but I am afraid I simply get a 404 error. The last image is a screen grab from my history with some the images that I wanted to post.
