The west side of Wilkes Street, looking towards Christ Church. The houses in the foreground, built in 1723, display a sustained uniformity of design and detail unusual in early Georgian Spitalfields. They were speculation by local master builder, Marmaduke Smith.
Here are a few scribbles from the last few days in London. I was in the big smoke for a networking event I have spent the last few months helping organise with our Illustration course at @leedsartsuni - miraculously it all went smoothly! It was a very valuable experience and a massive learning curve, being the first project of this type that I have ever been involved in. A huge thankyou to all the speakers who attended and took time out of their busy schedules to answer our questions and give us advice about the industry. They were as follows - Ziggy Hanaor from @cicadabooks, Sophie Stericker from @hachettebooks, Sam Arthur from @nobrowpress, Nicola St Louis from @anthropologie, Greg Burne from @bigactive, Ruby Boddington from @itsnicethat, Matt Nankivell from @ogilvyuk, Michael Crozier from @dusk.studio, Ben Cox from @central_illustration, Chloe Morgan from @plum_agency and last but certainly not least, Sam Summerskill from @barepsldn. Thanks again guys, I hope you all had a great day and we hope that our paths will cross again soon.
