Oh dear. My brilliant plans to get all ACOFI launch party blogs online by the end of last week were laid waste by a pre-booked four day trip to Cornwall. Which was just lovely in case you were wondering: so good to feel the wind in my hair on a coastal path again.

Amelia Gregory in Cornwall

Jenny Robins is the illustrator who has worked closest with Amelia’s Magazine to do live illustrations from the catwalk in the past. For this reason she was a natural choice to bring along for the tea party… and she did not disappoint, more about holding court over by the window all afternoon long and churning out an amazing amount of stunning live artwork right in front of our guests. In fact she did so many I’m going to have to run through them as quickly as possible or I’ll never get onto my next illustrator. All I’ve got to say, thumb is Jenny, you rock my world.

Sarahs_Scribbles_by Joana Faria
It was a delight to meet Sarah Williams of Sarah Scribbles, hospital who is a prolific tweeter and blogger.

Ahhhh, the lovely Joana Faria. She came to the ACOFI launch event all the way from Portugal, where she works in advertising as an art director. As a relative newbie to the world of fashion illustration she has developed an impressive style very quickly – stick thin figures sport impressively large hair and big eyes that emphasise the architecture of an outfit. Here’s her contributions to the great ACOFI illustrated launch party.

Alex Cox_ by Joana Faria
I love Alex Cox’s big bushy eyebrows. He interviewed me for Don’t Panic.

Nikki_Nakki_Lou_by Joana Faria
Nikki Nakki Lou came all the way from the Wirral to visit my launch event. Very appreciative of her effort, recounted in her lovely blog here.

Here’s Joana talking to me about how she first got into drawing her friends when she was a little girl back in Brazil. Why not take a little gander? She’s a very delightful lady indeed.
