It’s always great to come across work that makes you smile, and with the slightly morbid, yet cheeky humour in Stephen Cheetham’s work, it’s hard not to. He obviously has fun doing what he does, but with his eye for clean, simple design, he does it with a fresh and clear panache. We sat down with Stephen to find out more about how he started, and where that sense of humour came from.

We really like the brush work and warm palette being used in these ink illustrations by Norwich-based Joel Benjamin. Originally from Suffolk, he grew up with a love of the outdoors, which can be seen in his drawings and their soothing, rustic tones. A great use of ink and watercolour, scanned in and reworked for a modern edge to a traditional medium. He tells us more about his inspiration.
