Live Portrait Illustration at Victoria Gate, Leeds

Live Portrait Illustration at Victoria Gate, Leeds

This month we had the pleasure of setting up our easels in the gorgeous setting of the Victoria Gate shopping centre in Leeds. We were thrilled to take part in their Shopping Affair event which even saw, Strictly Stars, James and Ola Jordan take the stage. 

Our role at the Shopping Affair involved illustrating guests. We love performing live illustration at retail events like this because of the smiles we create. Each person received a bespoke portrait which they could take home and treasure forever. The portraits make beautiful mementos and conversation-starters.

WANDER: The Old Red Bus Station Exhibition

WANDER: The Old Red Bus Station Exhibition

In January we exhibited at The Old Red Bus Station alongside fellow illustrator, Adam Menzies. Our first exhibition of the year (titled WANDER) challenged viewers to see their environment in a new way. It launched on the 12th of January, 2017. It has now been a month since the exhibition ended and we wanted to reflect on this.
