Luke Ramsey’s zines, prints, drawings and collaborations (like the above collection of monster mug shots executed with Finlay Pogue) could keep an attentive viewer absorbed for days on end.

But there’s more! Along with his wife Angela Conley, Ramsey runs Islands Fold, an independent publisher and artist residency on Pender Island, B.C., Canada, founded in 2006. Available for purchase at the website are a multitude of prints, drawings, shirts and zines, the proceeds of which go directly toward funding the residency. Good work, guys!

Genevieve DF Simms is an illustrator and artist whose bold, swirling images we can’t get enough of. Her website assembles a bunch of her illustration work, as well as limited-edition silkscreened posters and prints available for purchase.

We’re also enamored of Genevieve’s blog, which collects her process sketches, adventures in Google image search and thoughts on the role of an artist/illustrator. “One of my favourite things about doing illustration assignments,” she writes, “is that one must often explore things that they may not otherwise investigate.” There are also photo studies and one-offs like this awesome inventory of Genevieve’s treasures, inspired by the A&E show Hoarders. Neat!

We love Graham Carter’s lovely, colorful silkscreens on Japanese plywood. The images are painstakingly detailed and lively, and take inspiration from Carter’s illustrations.

Along with his partner Alice, Graham launched Boxbird Gallery & Studios, which represent a passel of illustrators and printmakers. Boxbird is also a working studio with full screen-printing facilities on site. Visit the Boxbird site as well as Graham’s site to check out some of the UK’s finest young printmaking talent.
