This post is shamefully late - but I am just now surfacing from my busiest work period EVER. I have some exciting new work to show you and one big project to reveal next week. But for now, let's skip back a couple of months to The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair which this year had the very special new addition of an Illustrator's Corner - promoting illustration and matchmaking artists and publishers from the Middle East and North Africa and across the globe. It was a pleasure to be involved this year and I made some great contacts as well as meeting a load of fabulous and talented artists from the region. Here is a small selection of designers, animators and illustrators who I got to know at the book fair. Click their pictures for a link to their own websites and here for more information on the book fair.
As well as exhibiting my work at the Book Fair, I was asked by The National newspaper to illustrate the cover of their special edition book fair magazine - for which they requested a typographic interpretation of the 50 Novels You Should Have Read - have you read them all?!
