Renegade Craft Fair in London 2011 Review: Illustration and Wall Art

The inaugural London Renegade Craft Fair took place on the 8th and 9th October 2011 at the Truman Brewery. Here's a look at some of the best illustration and wall art that I found, including The Bungaloo, Being Natalie, Julia Pott and upcycled wallets from Magic Industrie.

The Renegade Craft Fair obviously has some clout back in its home country of America, health since quite a few of the stallholders had flown over just to participate in the inaugural British event last weekend. This meant there was a welcome chance to discover some new crafting gems from across the pond, and marvel up close at the slightly different aesthetics of American design when compared to the UK’s own crafting scene. I’ve split my write ups into loosely grouped themes – first up some of the best artist and illustrators that I found.

John Vogl of The Bungaloo is obviously on to a winner: most of his display posters had been taken off the walls by the time I returned later on Sunday. I particularly liked the tour poster he had done for Explosions in the Sky.

Ryan Hansen of Magic Industrie, Los Angeles, creates handmade bookmarks and magic wallets from upcycled illustrations that he finds in salvaged books. One of these would make a beautiful alternative to the usual Oyster card holder.
