London Illustration FairThe London Illustration Fair returns at the end of November and can usually be found taking over the Bargehouse, a four-storey warehouse by the Oxo Tower on the South Bank. The fair showcases the work of illustrators, designers, print makers, publishers and crafty businesses for a three-day illustration extravaganza. Exhibiting alongside the artist-led stands are handpicked creative partners and a packed programme of workshops, artist-led talks and workshops, live DJs and a fully stocked winter-warming bar. Last year's workshops included the history of record sleeve illustration, graphic novels, paper cameras and a multitude of printmaking techniques which visitors got to try out.
