• How to save the London Graphic Designers Meetup Group?
    • What we'll do Hi everyone, I have suggested hundreds of meet-ups for this group in the past years. The original organiser has stepped down and I would like to find members interested in keeping the group alive. I don't mind continuing to suggest events/exhibitions and more, only if I am joined by other dynamic and motivated members interested in playing a part. Anyone interested to discuss this before it is too late? The group will shut down on the 29th of December. I have picked up a pub in central London to discuss this around few drinks. Thanks Denis • What to bring Ideas and motivation • Important to know

  • London Illustration Fair 2016
    Hey guys, just posting this up as I've been to this event a few times over the last few years and thought it would be a good one to share and get people involved with on here! Thinking of heading down on Saturday afternoon for 2pm and checking out the event for a while, and maybe grabbing some food and drinks afterwards if anyone's interested :) Would be awesome to get a few of us down for the event. You can get tickets in advance from here:- https://thelondonillustrationfair.ticketabc.com/events/london-illustrati-10/ or you can get tickets on the day (for a little bit more). Here's the event info... 'The London Illustration Fair 2016 is an annual, artist-led illustration, print and graphic design fair, bringing artists and buyers together in a unique environment. The fair offers the chance for illustration lovers to come face to face with their favourite artists and discover amazing new artwork from emerging illustrators. There is something for every pocket from exclusive original pieces to prints and gifts for under ten pounds. We’re excited to confirm that this December The London Illustration Fair will return to the Bargehouse for what is set to be our most exciting festival to date.

Following on from a successful move from Hoxton to London's Southbank in 2015, The London Illustration Fair will once again seek to delight and entertain with another bumper packed event full of illustration, workshops, talks, music, live signings, murals and a ton of Christmas gift ideas for even Santa to get excited about. All from a top crop of well established and rising stars of the illustration and craft world.

Working in pen to create detailed monochrome pieces and using printing to add a bit of colour.

His aim is to reflect and celebrate social diversity through his image selection, mark making and colour choice. Daisy Emerson 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU Daisy is a full time Illustrator, painter of walls, painter of windows, hand-letterer and all round doodler. She has a real love of type which is incorporated a lot in her work. Daisy likes to use pencil,pens and paint to create, sometimes digitally but always starting with a doodle or a hand drawing.

Jean Jullien JACKIE BROWN Jean Jullien is a French graphic artist currently living in London. He comes from Nantes and did a graphic design degree in Quimper before coming to London.

Lilly Lou SUNSET BOULEVARD Street artist and designer Lilly Lou is now in her prime, painting the streets of London with her positivity imbued, unique letterforms. Armed with a BA in Graphic Design from Nottingham Trent University, Lilly Lou followed her desires and moved away from the computer screen to bring her distinct blend of femininity and strength on to the streets and continues to play with medium and scale. MOL GALAXY QUEST Fred Higginson also works under the name of MoL. Fred set up his first artist studios in an old church, providing affordable workspace for local artists, returning to London to set up Print Club.

RYCA BEST OF TEN BY KUBRICK Ryan Callanan is an artist working in contemporary printmaking and graphics.

Peter Strain TRAINSPOTTING He specialises in creating hand-rendered illustration, collage and typography and always tries to experiment with texture and mark-making techniques to keep his work evolving. His work is hugely influenced by film and music and aims to tackle social, political and cultural issues with a highly distinctive hand lettering style, bold imagery and humour. Joseph Vass GIRLHOOD Joseph Vass is a silkscreen artist whose work fuses typographic elements together with idealistic imagery, leaving the viewer with no hangover. A brush and ink fanatic, Joseph spends hours meticulously sketching on his light box before creating larger than life, colourful pieces that are then silkscreened or used commercially in print, web or advertising. Joe Wilson ROBOCOP Joe Wilson is an illustrator based in the UK specialising in highly detailed, hand-drawn illustrations and print. Working with a combination of pencil, ink and digital colour, Joe's work takes form as a hybrid of the traditional and contemporary. Cassandra Yap BRAM STOCKER'S DRACULA Originally from Singapore, Cassandra Yap is an artist and art director based in London. Her work often explores the juxtaposition between dark and beautiful subjects to create the surreal. Fuelled by her love of pin ups, the female form and an unhealthy obsession with vintage erotica, her photomontage halftone style images are dark, bold and humorous with a kinky edge.
