Scrapbook Live saw the launch of the latest edition of Scrapbook, the seventh edition in the notebook series we have designed.
The event took place at The Griffin Gallery and Illustration’s Senior Agent Victoria Pearce along with curator Montana Forbes planned the event to perfection, joyfully supported by twenty-one exhibiting illustrators, five of whom performed ‘live art’.
Introduced by Garrick Webster
With a welcoming introduction from Computer Art’s journalist Garrick Webster and a few words from Victoria, artists, clients and agents were left to mingle and enjoy the rare opportunity to chat face to face, surrounded by walls draped with creativity.
Sarah Beetson’s live portraits created a crowd whilst Jacqueline Bissett’s glamorous fashion drawings of figures in the gallery were breath-taking. Both Miss Led and Gail Armstrong showed their skills with much interest from the visitors to the gallery, and lettering artist Ruth Rowland demonstrated her spontaneous lettering skills.
The evening concluded after each illustrator was interviewed and had time to relax and enjoy sounds from DJ Dirty Freud. Everyone left with a goody bag (designed by Manifest) full of wonderful giveaways from our illustrators.
Victoria Pearce said “It has been wonderful to bring together our illustrators, clients & agenting team in this personal way to enjoy a coming together of creativity, illustration & inspiration” We’d like to thank our sponsors The Griffin Gallery, Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Conte a Paris, Cobra Beer, Manifest and everybody who came to the event.
