Hmm... except with Carl maybe. That face is FIRMLY within my manga-influenced skill set.
Sammy drew my advice-giving house hob, Poppet, who is also the reason I am currently in the lead in the Paper People game. Sammy has kindly documented my victory in her latest blog post.
The reason we were in London was to go to The Art of Illustration, a talk at the British Library. I drew the guests on my notes. From top to bottom - Quentin Blake, Posy Simmonds, Jamie Hewlett and Martin Rowson. They all told us about four of their favourite illustrators. It was mostly good, aside from an awkward moment in the question section, in which someone asked why none of them had picked any women. It was shrugged off and joked about in a way that suggested it wasn't important, and one of the guests joked that 'we could have picked Posy, but she's here' which kind of made it sound like Posy Simmonds is the only influential female illustrator in existence. That disappointed me.
Also we got to 'very awkwardly walk down the stairs by Jamie Hewlett in silence' as Sammy put it. Because we are the SMOOTHEST PEOPLE.
