A couple of weekends ago we were exhibiting our wares at Brighton Illustration Fair 2017. We had a fine time, rubbing shoulders some of the stars of the illustration/arty world (including David Shrigley, It’s Nice That and Jordy van den Nieuwendijk) listening to talks by the likes of Tuesday Bassen and most importantly buying stuff! A few shots of our stall, including some handmade signage by our Patrick. You can buy our stuff at our webshop.
Just across the room from our stall was Jordy’s drawing club, run by the very excellent Jordy van den Nieuwendijk (he’s the fella in the orange shirt in the photo). We took part in one of the drawing games which involved drawing dinosaurs with a pen in each hand. See below for a video of some of the fun work produced at the workshop.
And here are the things we bought from everyone else at the fair!“Ripples” comic book and “Lady in the Egg Hat” sticker by Wai Wai Pang. “Ripples” is a beautifully drawn detective story comic book – it was too intriguing not to buy! We haven’t read the book yet, but it has to be good!Special drawing and personal message inside. The little dog character’s T-shirt says “Not Owen” because our Patrick keeps getting confused with Owen Gildersleeve.
Super cute exercise book with hand drawn decoration by Fern Eleanor
Hand made tote bag by Hiffy Ulrich. Love the colours on this!
“Little Red” by Bethan Woollvin. We thought this take on the Little Red Riding Hood story was too good to pass up! Little note on the inside (note we erased the name of the person it’s “to” in photoshop so it doesn’t spoil their Christmas surprise!)
2018 collaborative calendar featuring work by Lauren Humphrey, Joe Lillington, Lizzy Lomax, Tim Harrod, Maria Suarez Inclan, Joe Mackenzie, Molly Martin, Michael Driver, Tatiana Boyko, Esme Lonsdale, Andres Lozano and Bridie Cheeseman. Each month is by a different artist and is printed with lovely riso colours.Cat Disco zine by Rebecca K Jones. If you’ve ever wondered what the cats in your neighbourhood get up to while you’re asleep at night, this is the book for you!
Thanks very much to the BIF organisers, we had a great time at the fair!
