Claiming and Naming

Hey guys,
Because the doodles aren't signed, and people have been asking, I'm going to be putting the names of all the illustrators in a comment with every post. I've done the ones I can remember straight off and will confirm the others before posting! If anyone has some cool ideas for the next theme, let me know then, ok?

See you soon!

Also, a couple of new illustrators have joined in this week, so check out their websites and details on the 'Who We Are' page. Let us know what you think! Here's the images:
