Illustrations by Jack Simpson

Jack Simpson is a local Leytonstone artist, who is showing a selection of his illustrations in Slate until 29 March. He says “They depict the various sights I see on my travels in London and around the UK. I love finding interesting looking people and enjoy the challenge of trying to capture their look and form with a simple line drawing and sparse uses of colour.”

Each of the Slate windows has a different theme: People; animals; vehicles.

The A4 prints are for sale at just £20 each – for more information have a look in the Slate windows. Jack also has a wider selection of his work on his website at

Eleanor Bedlow, Drawings – 4 Jan to 15 Feb 2014

Eleanor Bedlow recently spent 2 months in Delhi on an artist’s residency – teaching at the International Institute of Fine Arts in Modinagar as well as travelling to Manali on the tip of the Himalayas. Here at Slate, she has been showing some of the works triggered by this experience of India.

From the tombs, ruins and temples of Delhi, to building sites and crumbling structures; from the mountainous landscape of Manali to a site which had been taken over by monkeys, Eleanor was inspired to create these wonderful drawings.
