I have had these wonderful collaged slippers by Joanna Neborsky saved for a while, waiting for the right time to share. At last, it is 'slipper' day and if you haven't seen them already you can wonder at these textured feet, get into your fancy footwear and enjoy your Friday.

Lately, as well as attending many illustrator workshops I have really enjoyed watching videos of illustrators working and talking about their work. Beatrice Alemagna's beautiful animated film discussing her book 'What is a Child?' is an absolute joy, insightful, magical and wonderous.
