November 5th Woody Talk at Cockpits Arts

The AOI (Association of Illustrators) have invited me to give a presentation about my work and being an illustrator - followed by a Q&A session afterwards.

Rather unnervingly, the evening is called Head to Head, but I'm assured that this won't mean myself and fellow speaker/illustrator Chris Long being pitted against each other in some bizarre quiz or boxing match...

So if you've got questions about illustration as a career, need advice about the industry or want to find out more about Woody projects come along. I think there are a few places left.

5 November 2009 6pm – 9pm – Cockpit Arts (Holborn) off Cockpit Yard, Northington Street, London WC1N 2NP

AOI associate members and student members: £18, AOI members: £20, Non-members:£25

Zoo Art Fair

hello hello. sorry been too busy to keep up blogging - shocking, i know - sorry.

So what have I been doing?

Well in between making more Little Treasures (that go on sale from early Nov) I went up to the big smoke on Monday to see Zoo Art Fair.

On the whole, I wasn't bowled over by the Stand Presentations. However a couple of the Solo Works really stood out as really lovely and just right: Juan Fontanive at Riflemaker (london) made beautiful kinetic drawings and film inspired objects; while Anna Turner showing at the Collective Gallery's stand painted lovely little yet confident paintings.

The Editions Exhibitors were always going to be impressive, what with the likes of White Cube Gallery and the Serpentine Gallery amongst them. I fell in love with a Peter Blake piece - a portrait of Andy Warhol - on Paul Stolper's stand (i think) and there was a couple of pieces by the beautifully clever Dan Hays on the Multiple Store stand.

I loved the Zoo Art Fair posters and there signage this year too.

Yeah!! I just managed to get one of the Brighton Art Fair free bags. I went to have a quick look around the fair and see my friends at the Boxbird Gallery stand - they are selling some Boxbird-exclusive Woody screen prints on cardboard and original drawings. The fair is on now until 4th October.
