Yellow was an exciting digital and book project that saw 52 of the world's most exciting artists illustrate 52 an entire year of news stories. The concept was to investigate what artists can bring to news coverage beyond traditional print and TV journalism. Beginning as a weekly digital series in late 2014, Yellow was eventually collected and published as a beautiful luxury book in December 2015 – taking over £25k in sales on Kickstarter and orders from some the UK's most desirable stockists.
