“Illustration Fair at the Oxo Tower”

One of our Creative Industry Practice tasks was to go and check this illustration fair. It was happening over three days in the Oxo Tower, and it was a real “pick-me-up” right after my depressing Geffrye Museum visit (https://katarinajakcsiova.wordpress.com/2016/01/07/geffrye-museum-visit/).

Here are some of the most inspiring shots from this lovely fair.

This Japanese girl was selling an amazing peek-through book for 1000GBP! It was worth it though.

Like the colours and the grunge.

Oooooh, makes wanna create something messy and beautiful, but have piles of other stuff to do (yes, some for uni too!), which must stay a priority.

Hope you enjoyed these works as much as I did.
