The Garden is a beautiful story of healing and growth through mindfulness and gardening.

Joanna is a high-powered finance consultant who’s been signed off work after having a nervous breakdown. Seeking more than just something to pass the time, she travels to Kyoto, Japan, to immerse herself in the arts of zen gardening and meditation.

Returning home – and to the challenges of daily life – Joanna finds peace and a new sense of calm through nurturing her own garden – and her soul

I have happily forgotten what used to concern me before all this.
I am the strongest thing in the world.
I have an infinity of precious details to smile upon

Praise for the creators:

‘[Obata] is a talent to watch. I like his elegant, understated drawings, which hint at the manga stories he must have read as a boy.’ – Rachel Cooke, Observer (on Just So Happens)

‘hugely eloquent narratives . . . well served by Wilson’s succinct and elegant text.’ – Morning Star (on The Many Not the Few)

Tales of the Tarot: Chapter 15 – The Devil

Meet Natalie Dormady, creator of 365 Gentle Reminders

‘Doodling rainbows reminds me that storms will always end, and the light will return. Flowers and bumblebees remind me of how important each one of us are in this world.’

Natalie Dormady, aka @littlearthlings – author, artist and creator of 365 Gentle Reminders

It’s a new year, and for many it’s a time of renewal and working toward a better relationship with themselves. We could all probably do with some self-compassion after the excess and family tensions that often come with the holidays, coupled with the deep darkness we experience in the winter (in our part of the world, at least!).

That’s why we’ve published 365 Gentle Reminders (just £9.99 during January 2020), a page-a-day book of positive, uplifting reminders illustrated by the inspiring Natalie Dormady. After battling with mental illnesses, Natalie found her passion for art while on her recovery journey, and she’s been sharing her Gentle Reminders on Instagram for a few years now. Get to know Natalie through our interview, below…

Alba Ballesta González

Alba Ballesta was born in a hot day of 199X somwhere along the Mediterranean. She co-founded Weba! Studio (animation and indie-games) while finishing her major in Fine Arts, where she continues to work as Art Director. Her works are influenced by the three corners of a sacred triangle:

I: An eclectic vision on the arts, including references such as orientalist paintings, the universe of Jean Giraud and the art in motion by Hayao Miyazaki, but also the poetry of García Lorca and the Japanese Haiku;

II: A contemplative vision of everyday reality, which brings inspiration for her typical compositions filled with local birds and plants;

III: A strong connection with the dreams realm, where she finds the seeds of her inspirational tree.
