I can’t think of anything braver for an illustrator than agreeing to do the portrait of another illustrator. But that’s what the hellohead charity exhibition at CARGO, Rivington Street (this Wednesday 22nd August) demands so that’s what these courageous souls have done.
On Wednesday, Rosie Shorter and Lucy Joy’s night of face related fun will run from 6pm till late and include live portrait drawing in two minutes, a pop up shop and an interactive set plus a silent auction of all the prints from the portrait-swap. All the money raised will go to the National Autistic Society and some of the portraits on display will come from NAS artists. And on Thursday, Style & Then Some favourite Zeena Shah will be running a screen printing and art workshop with Bread Collective for children with autism and Asperger’s from 11am to 2pm.
Over 60 illustrators and designers are taking part – you can see the names and work of some of the artists in the above image, from the hellohead site. If you fancy sticking your head into the exhibition (sorry) or noseying around some of the work online (OK, I’ll stop), you can find out more at the hellohead website or the event’s Facebook page. Style & Then Some will be there getting our face painted so we’ll post some snaps up afterwards.
