York is a city of beauty, talent and heritage, so it’s no surprise they have their own Culture Awards evening, hosted by Make It York. York Culture Awards is an annual celebration of the city’s best cultural and arts organisations and events. We were so excited to be invited to record the event through the power of illustration.

Live Illustration for York Fashion Week at Marks & Spencer

Live Illustration for York Fashion Week at Marks & Spencer

York Fashion Week 2018 (by Fashion City York) was a stylish week-long festival celebrating fashion and creativity across one of our favourite cities, York. When we first discovered this, we were eager to get involved and it’s lovely to now be a part of the festivities! One way we’ve been contributing to the magic is through live illustration. We were delighted to be asked to illustrate portraits at the VIP Launch Party at Marks & Spencer.

Whilst at the party, we interacted with local bloggers, entrepreneurs, fashion designers, stylists, makeup artists... the list goes on and on! Everyone loved socialising and celebrating. Our live illustration offered respite for those in need of a sit down! Those that did sit with us, had a lovely experience receiving a bespoke portrait drawn by us live on the night. Our favourite part of the process is seeing the guests’ faces light up as they receive their illustrations. 

Anthropologie x Buttercrumble: Happy Mail Workshop in Leeds

Anthropologie x Buttercrumble: Happy Mail Workshop in Leeds

It was a joy to return to basics last Sunday and enjoy the love and effort which goes into writing an old-fashioned letter. We had the perfect workshop venue (Anthropologie, Leeds) and loveliest guests to collaborate with too!

By working with the creative lifestyle brand, Anthropologie, we created a supportive environment where participants penned letters that combined words, collage and illustration before securing in an equally beautiful envelope. Their happy mail was then ready to pop in the post!
