tell me a story
i mentioned in a previous post about some exciting illustrationey plans that were being conjured up between soupa and yarn fest, and yesterday i was sent the details to share with the world ...
yarn are teaming up with soupa and cure studio for this years yarn fest :
celebrating story and storytelling - showcasing film, theatre, music, illustration and literature and providing a platform for mixing them all up! yarn fest 2011 will be running from 19 to 23 February
for full details visit the website
i will be there helping out over the weekend AND you can see me looking all scared doing some live drawing on sunday evening between 6 and 8, where a bunch of illustrators will be drawing stories as they are read aloud by the authors, live. LIVE! eak!
basically it's going to be a totally ace weekend full of fun creative events so make sure you come along for some super fun times!
speaking of soupa i made this month's banner for the blog using one of my new illustrations (there's also loads of info about yarn fest on the soupa blog too) if you want to get involved in soupa you can design your very own blog banner, we're always looking for contributors! click on the 'blog banners' link under the blog banner for all the details you need! ... have i said blog banner enough?! blogbannerblogbannerblogbanner
in other news:
i've recently posted a few new items up in my etsy shop, you should totally go check them out if you get a moment.
i've been working on some more new drawings recently (as always) so am planning on updating my portfolio page at the end of the month for your viewing pleasure.
also i've spent a few days this week in a local primary school working with all the little kiddies to create a mural for their entrance corridor. the children were all given some acetate and pens to make some wonderful drawings, and it was my job to paint them on the wall! somewhat different to what i usually do, but it was all good fun! going in again on friday to finish it all off so will post a pic of the finished project then!
