Illustrating The Secret Garden: The Finished Illustration

Illustrating The Secret Garden: The Finished Illustration

We partnered with York Theatre Royal and Little Vikings to bring the outside, inside for Bloom! Festival 2018. Over the course of a sunny Saturday, we illustrated the windows of the theatre and encouraged visitors to join us. We were inspired by the nearby gardens and used this in our drawings.

Earlier this week, we illustrated at the Ladies' Night shopping event at Meadowhall in Sheffield. Customers could sit with us for 10 - 15 minutes to receive a personal portrait. It was such a fun evening and we met so many lovely people. This creative experience left everyone smiling.

York Fashion Week: Create a Look Book Workshop

York Fashion Week: Create a Look Book Workshop

We have a passion for fashion, and boy, did we share it at our latest workshop. We enabled local stylists, students and fashionistas to feel confident about style in collaboration with York Fashion Week and Fashion City York.

To celebrate the hotly anticipated fashion week, we invited guests to lovingly create their own look book to boost their creativity. Fashion can be a powerful self-reflection and we wanted to give people the power to express themselves through illustration and design.

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.
