There are medal events in Judo today, in the Women’s 52kg and the men’s 66kg categories.
Illustration by Hannah Carty.
Excitement mounts in the run up to tonight’s opening ceremony in London! Here’s Hannah Carty’s illustration of the venue.
Hannah Carty’s illustration is inspired by Oktoberfest, the beer festival which takes place in Munich ends today! One of the most famous events held in Germany it is the world’s largest beer fair, attracting over 5 million visitors each year!
Hannah Carty’s illustration is inspired by the Harrogate Flower Show which takes place between 16-18 September, at which the “Heaviest Onion Competition” takes place.
Well, we think it’s safe to say the Summer is over, and so eastwing illustrators embrace the move to Autumn with our seasonal homepage.
Hannah Carty shows her support for Label Love…
“The PIAS warehouse which was burnt down during the rioting in London last week contained the physical stock for many of Britain’s Indie records labels, the loss of which is likely to be devastating for these small companies.
A great thing for people to do to support the labels is to buy music from them. The Quietus.Com recommends 20 downloads, have a look..”
Hannah Carty’s talks us through her work space,
‘ Welcome to my desk! It’s large with a steel top, which, as you can see, allows me to get rather messy as my work usually involves paint and collage, before it’s put together and tidied up on the trusty Mac.
I work in the back bedroom of my house in Norwich, and am lucky to have my partner Adam, also an illustrator, sharing this little studio space, so there’s always someone on hand for a “critique” when needed!
I keep plenty of sketchbooks to hand along with a selection of my favourite illustrated books. Magma bookshop is a dangerous place for me to be let loose, but I also have quite a collection of old blank notebooks which I snap up whenever I find them in second-hand shops; I like using the aged paper and the patterns on the inner covers.
On the wall I like to keep a little rotating gallery of inspirational gems that I come across – the wonders of white-tac! As well as pieces I’ve cut out from newspapers and magazines there are images by my sister Ella, a painter, and friend Ning-I Yen, a Taiwanese illustrator.
This all looks relatively tidy; however I have to confess that the drawers and files under my desk house a multitude of sins! I keep masses of found and painted/drawn-by-me scraps of things I like to use in my work. On my computer too, I keep a slightly more orderly catalogue of photographs I have taken, to draw from in my illustration work.
It’s a good job you can’t see my very shabby chair which has been slightly ripped to shreds by our cat, Mulberry, who’s usually not far away if not keeping my place warm for me!’
