Upfest Update

Upfest 2010 was what can only be termed as "truly amaze!" This was the first year the Upfest organisers had ventured to showcase live illustration alongside that of the graffiti giants and to what great effect! Teams of artists and illustrators packed into the Theatre Space at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol to lovingly adorn their given canvas with colour, characters, nudity (oops, my apologies) and i must say we definitely threw and drew some damn hot shapes. The following troops took part:

  • BOYS WHO DRAW
  • GIRLS WHO DRAW
  • INKYGOODNESS - yeay thats us, joined by the delicious Cami Dobrin
  • THE DECKED PROJECT - good friends Vicky Newman and Louise Brangwin
  • DRAWN RECORDINGS
  • URBAN ILLUSTRATORS
  • THE SECRET GROUP - shhh

Working from 12 noon till 6pm the Theatre Space was jam packed with eager onlookers and happy customers taking away prints, cards and artwork that was available for sale during the event. So at the end of our 6 hour onslaught we got the chance to stand back and admire the fruit of our labour and wonder if we would be invited back next year? Looks like we did ourselves proud as the news on the street is that the Upfest organisers are going to allow us to re create the magic next year! Woop woop. To the troops that took part we salut you! Much love.x
