The Usher Gallery, Lincoln

artists, architects, designers and makers. Artist Gwen Tooke has made a performative piece of work, creating a categorisation of the sketchbooks. She will be present during the exhibition. Here is Maggie Warren, the Community Engagement Officer surveying the exhibits before the public came in.
Two of my favourites are by illustrators, Dan Berry, above and Tom Gauld, below. Their illustrations are also included in the digital projections in the adjoining room. One of Simon Faithfull’s palm pilots is also displayed in there. Illustrator Jane Hienrichs‘ sketchbook is under Tom Gauld’s.
Jane had braved the temperamental train service from London to attend the opening, here we are together, Jane on the left.
I designed this logo last year for Marie Világhy’s new venture, setting up a business around the perfect wedding venue in France. She recently launched her website and it will make you want to get married just to have the party there…just to GO there….and it’s in France too!
