About
What connects caricature and political posters? Uptown fashion and downtown street art? Retail packaging and computer games? The beginning of the 21st Century finds illustration as its animating art form, whether it’s the popularity of children’s books, the re-emergence of craft, the mainstreaming of Street Art and the buzz around the animated movie - big and small budget. Varoom magazine, and the Varoomlab website, tracks and explores the work, the ideas, the people behind this flowering of creativity.

Expert writers from the illustration and design worlds, from newspapers and magazines, and specialists from our college network with professional and academic expertise, unpack the ways in which illustrative images are shaping culture and society. Varoomlab is a collaboration between the Association of Illustrators and a network of international colleges, which alongside regular updates is also a venue for the sharing of academic research and peer-reviewed articles. -Varoom

About
Popshot is a bi-annual British based art publication that champions contemporary poetry and illustration. Gently intent on hoodwinking poetry back from the clammy hands of tweed jackets and school anthologies, Popshot looks to celebrate the poetry of today and tomorrow with the whimsical arms of illustration wrapped tightly round it. We are of the thought that the future of poetry is even more exciting than the past.
Each issue of Popshot contains a collection of poems written to a theme. These selected poems are individually sent out to a collection of illustrators who illustrate the poems according to their interpretation of the piece. These illustrations are then bound together with the poems to create a beautiful volume of literary and artistic goodness.
Popshot is published twice a year in April and October.
