Thursday 8th Oct was the private view of the third annual Cheltenham Illustration Awards.
Simone Lia and Tom Gauld were guest speakers and also exhibited a range of their latest work alongside that of the student and emerging talent entries. It was a fantastic day out that began with talk from Simone and Tom who were both incredibly engaging and entertaining. As each slide came up there was a hush and a little ripple of laughter as the audience all got to the punch line of each illustration at the same time. The quality of the work was fantastic and the bright modern exhibition space in Gloucester uni all added to the high quality of the show. After crisps and sarnies the awards were presented and mingling commenced!
My piece, "Cast Adrift", was the one chosen for the exhibition.....check out the pics!
