The Holy Island of Lindisfarne
Liam O'Farrell returns from a successful painting trip to Northumberland.
After a few days painting, Liam has recorded his essence of the county in North East England. He travelled from Lindisfarne; one of the earliest sites for Christianity in the UK now with its fisherman's sheds made from upturned herring boats, to Dunstanburgh castle; painting a wonderful view of the ruins dating back to the 14th century and to historic Alnwick now known as the home of Harry Potter. Liam's enthusiastic interest in people, their banter, culture, the architecture and natural surroundings, means you may find him sat on his stool sketching, in a town near you!
Steven Van Hasten illustrates the 'Reason to be Cheerful' feature for Reader's Digest.
Written by James Brown, the story is about how wonderful it is to sleep in a cosy warm bed. Lots of people have to sleep in awkward situations and aren't able to have this comfort we take for granted. Steven says "It's a funny short story about bad situations to fall asleep."

Commissioned by the Hollywood Reporter, Zoe was asked to show where you can get the best juices in Los Angeles.
