Brillustration and Ashton Gate do book week

Dammit I've been itching to tell you about this for ages, but time has been against me (so many cartoon lemurs to draw!) and photos have been like hens teeth (massive thankyou to everyone that had the presence of mind to take a camera and let me use your photos!) .  A couple of weeks back I organised for a bunch of my Brillustration chums and me to descend on Ashton Gate Primary School in Bristol to help them celebrate book week.  
I've posted about it at length on the Brillustration site (and will do again as more pics come in) so I won't  go on about it too much here, but suffice to say there was a bit of this...


 ...a bit of this (I'm nothing if not a paper nerd...I also have thumbs to be proud of)..


a fair bit of this..



And a lot of this!



 It was mad week, but an incredibly enjoyable one.  The good folks at Ashton Gate are probably getting bored of me telling them how great they are, but I'll say it again...you're ace!  Of course I should also gently remind the kids not to get too good with the drawing...some of us have a living to make you know.....

Looks like a lot of fun. Connecting with your audience.

And the Ninja kid is beyond brilliant.

I thought the ninja kid was one of your own.

It is great to see when so much energy comes from an idea. I wonder if it something you could do every week or whether you would soon wear out?

He he- no the Ninja is not one of mine! I had no idea who it was, then found out the next week it was one of my son's friends who we quite often walk home with.

We and the kids were all pretty shattered by the end of Friday, so as to whether we could do it every week, alas probably not. Howver we're hoping to do some kind of return match for the Big Draw in October, and Brillustration is currently scheming its next public scribble...
