Russell Loughlan's emotional animals

I love Russell Loughlan's work. It makes me feel a bit tearful looking at it sometimes. 

He draws animals onto salvaged maps, pages from books or old postcards, and gives them feelings (quite complex ones). Simple. But very beautiful and strangely moving.





If you're in London, Russell has his first solo exhibition on at the Beardsmore Gallery in NW5, opening tomorrow for ten days. I wrote about it on the other website I edit, Belowtheriver.co.uk, if you want to find out more – you'll also see the nice logo that Russell hand-drew us for the site. Or if you aren't in London and just want to see more of his work, go to RussellLoughlan.com

You can't buy his work online, but you can pick it up at Elphick's and also buy copies of the badger print for £40 at Kentishtowner.co.uk (where you might recognise that logo).
