Featuring work by leading experimental illustrators including Laurie Rowan, Anna Mill, Sam Pierpoint and Doug John Miller, the exhibition showcases an array of work using new apps and software as well as traditional mediums. Many of the illustrators featured in the exhibition will show work that is a call to arms to inspire those in other industries to innovate environmentally and technologically.
