Ben Oakley and The London Illustrators Fair

Yesterday (10 July) we made a trip to The London Illustration Fair to meet Sam Bennett, one of the founders of the fair to see about ways of working together at the next fair in December. 

Our favourite pitch there was the Ben Oakley Gallery which had prints from Rowan Newton, who donated to our auction last year, Jo Peel who has also donated work both to Art on a Postcard and The Hepatitis C Trust's annual fundraiser with Sadie Frost, Mark Powell, David Bray, another Art on a Postcard contributor and Ben's pal Ray Richardson

We've been collaborating with Ray recently for Art Car Boot Fair (ACB). His images of his dog Brian were extremely popular on our pitch. Ray joined at ACB us to do live painting. We'll be doing it all again on 30 August in Margate 

We loved this print which is a collaboration between Ray and Ben and features their distinctive bull terrier and fairy motives.

The London Illustration Fair is open till 6pm on Sunday 12 at Hoxton Arches, 402 Cremer Street, E2 8HD. It's well worth a trip. You can pick up  prints from as little as £10 up to £300.
