Out & About: Shipshape Illustration and Design Forum, 15th April

Tea & Crayons are super excited about this: Shipshape Studios are hosting an Illustration and Design Forum on 15th April 2012 - with our very own Rachel L taking part! The event is now being held at The Brook Green Hotel, which is a 5 minute walk from Hammersmith tube station. It's also easily reached from Goldhawk Road and Shepherd's Bush stations.

"A panel discussion and networking event on careers in the design and illustration industry, with Emma Block, Alice Potter and Rachel Lewis.

During this intimate event, the panel will discuss careers in illustration and design, and will cover crucial aspects such as social networking and marketing yourself. There will be a Q&A session where you will have the chance to ask any questions about careers in the creative industry.  

The artists will be exhibiting a selection of their work and it will be available to buy. Refreshments will be available to purchase."

Tickets are £15 if you buy before 15th March, and as well as talking about our own careers to date, answering questions and generally discussing starting out in a creative career, we'll also all be selling prints of our work on the day, and Emma Block will be selling and signing copies of her amazing book, Tea & Cake. (Which we wholeheartedly approve of. Of course.)

This is the first time you'll be able to purchase archival prints of Rachel's work, which is super exciting. All of the panel members have followed slightly different career paths since graduating and it will be great to hear about the different options that are there for aspiring illustrators, and hopefully each panel member can give really varied and interesting insights into how they've got where they are today. It's going to be a great day and we hope to see as many of you there as possible!
