Tennessee-based trained illustrator Jessica Wohl works in the areas of painting, drawing, installation, collage and performance. She focuses on the concept of home and its residents, aiming to prove that not everything is what it seems by drawing and sewing on family photos. This process questions the representation of domestic perfection and happiness.
The series ‘Sewn Drawing’ uses embroidery to mask the characters on found photography and Wohl sews on them to embody the metaphor of the human need to “keep it together” and prevent life from “ripping apart at the seams”.

Yet today, the world’s bee population is declining quickly and it’s vital to support beekeeping communities.
They Honey Club trains beekeepers, organizes urban gardening programs, and hosts eductional events. Their latest project is Beetopia, an exhibition taking place at London’s Guardian Gallery, featuring bee-themed work from 25 European illustrators. They were asked to create pieces that show harmonious or optimal relationships between people and bees. The works are currently being auctioned off for charity online.
