This is Spike the cat who lives downstairs from them, his head is abnormally large. You can't really tell from this photo, but trust me.

We only caught the end but there was lovely patterns on the walls made from tape, and a carboard city, and lots of people in aprons. Here we are playing a twister like thing:
The best bit for me was the venue had a big balcony with an awsome view down Hanbury Street. It was only a minute away from the flat so afterwards we sat in the amazing summer evening and had some gin and tonics. Super duper.
These were all the illustrators involved, check them out:
I want to refine the actual drawing, and I would like the blue to be more of a navy blue.
What I'd like to do is have one sheet with the group of people, then a circular border surrounding them, then block colour, with two panels of text at top and bottom...maybe. But I need a photocopier for this. And then I shall go screen printing and try different colours. I was thinking white on blue coould work well- the text, the group and circular border in white, on dark blue paper.
The poster is based on something Hermione Lee wrote in her introduction to the novel- "Is the life of the Ramsays in the garden and house enclosed by the outside world as if in parenthesis, as the lighthouse is surrounded by the sea?". Thus the circle surrounded by blue.

First up, 'Brush up your Russian- Conversations of Real Use', by Anna H. Semeonoff. This remarkable book is a series of potential dialogues you may have, should you go to Russia.
Second Up, 'A Lion in the Meadow' by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Jenny Williams. These illustrations are so beautiful! These scans don't really do it justice- each of these pages is part of a double spread. I will try and take some good photos some time soon to fully illustrate this.
She draws many lovely animals and people. I absolutely love her use of line. And then on top of that, Julia Pott may be one of the most productive people around. Visuals for Bat for Lashes, The Decemberists, animations, a vast array of printed matter for sale...
Watch more cool animation and creative cartoons at Aniboom
That is a lovely animation. I love the idea of using interviews as the subject matter.

However, upon looking into Peter James Field further, I wasn't as drawn to any of his other work. His draughtsmanship is unarguably great, but the composition of this piece is superb.

Woah it feels good to have a complete image..I feel the whole drawing was a learning curve too, I started to introduce watered ink instead of my usual controlling the pressure/ink quantity of my pen, I think it had quite an effect.

All I've achieved so far today is some research on Roland Barthes' Camera Lucida, and watching youtube videos from the disney studios.
