The other week I was in Switzerland taking part in a week long residency called
'Buongiorno its Playtime' organised by Evelyne Laube, one half of the the multi-talented 'Its Raining Elephants'. 8 illustrators were invited to each run a workshop and give a presentation to the group in order to encourage an exchange of ideas, and encourage play within our work.
The illustrators were Katrin Stangl, Nina Wehrle, Johanna Benz, Nadine Spengler, Orphea Heutling, Manuel Marsol, and Michael Redmond.
Here are a few photographs from the week but check here for more work and information about the Sasso residency
It was a fantastic privilege to be working alongside such a talented group of illustrators, and really interesting to discuss ideas about illustration from a non UK perspective.
But don't just take my word for it, check out their work for yourself.
