Ears Wide Open

Welcome to the World of Alexandra Embleton. This lovely lady, obsessed with illustration and music, has combined her two loves to create a zine packed full of indie bands, animation and hand drawn portraits.

I very nearly referred to them as doodles but they are worth so much more than that flippant word used to describe something drawn on your maths book in year 8, they are portraits, obviously drawn with love and a little bit of passion, evoking the subject perfectly.

Following in the footsteps of the wonderful Sketchbook magazine, there needs to be way more hand drawn magazines in the World. I, for one, would heartily approve.

To see more of Alex's zine, 'Ears Wide Open' and her other lovely illustrations, visit her blog.
