 Last Sunday some SCBWI members were taking part in the first ever Illustrator Fair. No one knew what to expect. It was held in a newly developed area near Kings Cross.
 I followed the signs from the station, 
led on by the illustrations along the way, 
passed the open square of water spouts,
and the brand new House of Illustration, into an area of stands  
and found SCBWI friends and colleagues setting up.
We displayed our artwork and sold our books and all had a great day!


  1. Looks so fab! I was sorry to miss it!

  2. I'm going to see the House of Illustration tomorrow. Your fair looks a wonderful event!

  3. I hope you had a great time there. Can't wait to go myself, now it's open.
