Association of Illustrators award for COOP poster!

I am very happy to be selected as a winner at the AOI awards, in the Research and knowledge communication category. The brief was to design a poster for COOP, Italy that aims to present ideas about sustainable living in a simple and clear way. It was a collaboration with Italian publisher Corraini Edizioni who I work with regularly, and the second part of a larger project about education in schools, called Sapere COOP. The poster will be used as part of EXPO 2015 in Milan, with the general theme 'Feed the Planet, Energy for life'. Here is the final image and an early sketch!

The Illustrators' fair

I am looking forward to taking part in the Illustrators' fair next Sunday, at the House of Illustration near Kings Cross. It's free and there will be loads of illustrators exhibiting and selling their wares, as well as workshops, sideshows, food and music. The fair is part of a series of 'housewarming' events put on to celebrate the opening of the House of illustration - the world's first gallery wholly dedicated to illustration. The fair is open from 11am - 6pm and you can find out more here.
