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.
