The above image, They came by water Oil on canvas, is from John Marsden’s The Rabbits. Shaun Tan is the illustrator / artist and his work is amazing. The story is quite good too until it mentions the ’stolen children’. The whole thing is the story of Australia and early settlement, but it shows a very one sided view, which is not something to be proud of in what seems to be a childrens book.
Anyway politics aside, Shaun Tan also has his own wordless graphic novel called The Arrival which is fantastic.

Peter Doherty’s Blood Paintings are mentioned in the Daily Mail. The second one (Cell portrait: Number 3 On The Twos) is quite good.

Lastly, Wired Magazine: The Science of Pop-Ups.
