Illustrating Hansel & Gretel for the 21st Century

May 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join House of Illustration curator and Varoom editor Olivia Ahmad  in conversation with painter and illustrator Clive Hicks-Jenkins and Design for Today’s Joe Pearson as they discuss Clive’s reinventions of Hansel & Gretel, including his most recent work illustrating Simon Armitage’s retelling of the classic tale.

 

Clive will talk about deconstructing and reimagining a classic tale across multiple formats for different audiences in the 21st century, while Joe will explain how Design for Today transformed these contemporary fairy tale landscapes into printed imagery for book format.

 

Signed copies of the beautiful 96 page hardback will be available to buy on the night ahead of the official launch date.
