Heres my cover for today's Guardian's Guide supplement dedicated to this years Manchester International Festival. 

The Guardian wanted something really bright and colourful with a digital feel to link in with the
line up this year.

Now in its fifth edition the festival presents an array of new, exciting and specially commissioned work by some of the world's best artists in visual and performing arts, music and popular culture

This years line up includes Bjork, Jamie XX, FKA Twigs, Charlotte Rampling, Gerhard Richter, Carl Craig and Four  Tet.

Damon Albarn also returns to MIF with, a new musical inspired by Alice In Wonderland.
Albarn has created the music while the lyrics are by Moira Buffini. The show follows Aly into, an extraordinary virtual world where she can escape from school bullies and an unhappy home life.
