Last night I was at Handsome Frank presents "An Insider's Guide to Illustration". It was a cool little event, hosted by Illustration Agents Handsome Frank and held at The Church of London's new event space, 71a.If you don't know The Church of London, they are the creative genius behind Little White Lies Magazine the beautifully illustrated movie magazine, amongst other fab publications. To be honest, I was even quite excited about seeing inside their offices. The event had great insights from illustrators Tim McDonagh and Malika Favre and Art Director Paul Pensom,
D&AD New Blood winner and Pick Me Up 2012 exhibitor Tim McDonagh talked about his working practice and what he has learned since he left University.
The sublime illustrator, Malika Favre showed us a how her saucy work has developed over the years.
And Creative Review Art Director Paul Pensom was there to give a really helpful top ten list of what to do to impress an art director. I definitely took away lots of great ideas. While I was there, I also got to see Handsome Frank's first exhibition; Tweet-a-Brief- an exhibition inspired by creative briefs collected on Twitter, which was hanging in the same space as the talks. The exhibition was great!! Handsome Frank has the most incredible talent on its books. Totally worth seeing, so go visit before it finishes on July 22.
