Sketch: Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2018

Here’s the beginning of the illustration for my bookmark at the IGI stand in Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Every year the Illustrators Ireland has a place at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, this year it’ll be shared with a few other organisations from Ireland like the Children’s Books Ireland and publishers.

The Children’s Book Fair in Bologna is on 26 – 29 March in Bologna, Italy.

Exhibition: The State of Us – You, Me & the Liffey

Before creating the artworks for the pop-up exhibition organised by Illustrators Ireland & OFFSET my “sitter” wrote a little text about herself:

“Graphic designer, typographer, writer, teacher, swimmer with a mild fear of sea creatures — real and mythical. Loves making and reading beautiful books, vibrant colour and affogato. Avid baker of sweet things, coffee drinker and Mum.”

So to help overcome her fear I made her Queen of the River Liffey in Dublin. This is the illustration in full:
