Here are a few pictures from last Saturday's Festival of Illustration event at Heffers which I did with Marion Lindsay (my studio buddy)! We didn't get the whole way through the alphabet but we did get up to 'N' in the end! Big thanks to all the staff at Children's Heffers and to all the participants - it was really fun! You can see more pictures on Marion's blog.

I went drawing at the Fitzwilliam Museum this morning. The exhibition The Search for Immortality comes to an end this Sunday and I really wanted to see it. The exhibits that really caught my imagination were two jade burial suits. Small pieces of jade were patchworked together to make them: on one it is all held together with ribbon and linen; on the other wire links all the pieces. They looked amazing.

As part of the ongoing Festival of Illustration in Cambridge, myself and my studio buddy Marion Lindsay will be running a session at Heffers Children's Bookshop this Saturday from 11am - 1pm. We're going to try and create an animal alphabet with the children who come along - it's not a tried and tested event but fingers crossed it will go well!
