Having produced a series of portraits celebrating the life and times of my heroes past and present, I will be adding to the series with a number of new pieces inspired by literary/heroes for the Lichfield Literature Festival.
The exhibition opens 1-5 March 2017 at Lichfield Library. Pop in anytime between 10am and 4pm to say hi, take part in a giant colouring-wall and see my new portrait pieces. All artwork is available for purchase at the exhibition and via my online shop. Follow my instagram for work in progress images.
Illustrator in Residence
I also have the honour of being the first Illustrator in Residence at the Lichfield Literary Festival and as such I will be working on-site at Lichfield Library throughout the Festival from 1-5 March 2017.
Illustration Workshop [Saturday 4 March 2017, 2pm]
If you fancy getting involved, I will also be running an interactive Illustration workshop exploring techniques behind illustrating for literature and other media. Book your place via the Lichfield Festival website: http://www.lichfieldfestival.org/michelleturton. I look forward to seeing you there!
