World Illustration Awards Exhibition at Somerset House
On Sunday October 31st we went to the World Illustration Awards Exhibition at Somerset House (London). It was a pure delight. Not only it was hosted at one of my favorite venues in London, but the selection of works by contemporary illustrators was quite good. The one I liked the most was Malika Favre’s Futurist-inspired posters for the BAFTAs 2015, but there were many remarkable ones, like Bartosz Kosowski’s perfect poster for Kubrick’s Lolita, the cheerfully cute drawings of Chris Haughton for the Royal London Children’s Hospital, the super busy “Larger Than line” by Mattias Adolfsson, the powerful and colorful “Alice in Wonderland” art by Grahame Baker-Smith, or the iconic “Autism” work by Aad Goudappel (one copy of which I acquired for our private collection).
