I'm part of an illustration collective called Paper Assassins and we've been working on a new exhibition coming up as part of Artweek Auckland in October. We're transforming a shop in the Chancery in Auckland's CBD into an alternative universe bookshop, there'll be a range of fantastical book themed artworks, specially designed ex libris bookplates and a place where you can print and colour your own bookplates.
The 10 awesome illustrators on board are: Rebecca ter Borg, Marc Conaco, Pablo Espinosa, Toni Gill, Chris Hutchinson aka Chippy, Sloane Kim, Toby Morris, Colleen Pugh, Ezra Whittaker-Powley and myself.
The opening night is Saturday the 8th of October from 6-9pm, sponsored by Budweiser and we also have a late night (til 9pm) on Wednesday the 12th with the Quick Draw Sketch Gang doing live portraits and a kids activity day on the closing Sunday the 16th with lots of activities planned. Come along!
