Hartlepool Festival of illustration

First things first ,CCAD must awarded the best illustration festival host award for their sublime effort and care they put into creating the Hartlepool Festival of Illustration.

Kristian Jones and myself was asked to run a live draw workshop and invited to present a talk based on collaboration on behalf of Brothers of The stripe, who also displayed a a collection of wooden panels.

An illustration exhibition was one of the many highlights of the festival with work from Ralph Steadman, Chris Riddell, Drew Millward, Tom J Newell, Dan Mumford, Malarky and many more.

The personal highlights for Kristian and myself  was getting to meet some very talented CCAD students, sharing knowledge and beers with peers and pulling off a human pyramid during our talk to illustrate how Collaboration works.
