Here are some more photos from Jane's book launch that took place last week in London. A very big thank you to everyone who came along to look at the exhibition or to meet Jane and get books signed. A huge thank you also to the team at The Illustration Cupboard for hosting such a wonderful party.
The fantastic (and scrumptious!) cake centrepiece was made for the party by the super talented Shereen at Shereen's Cakes and Bakes.
This Wednesday was the publication date of Jane's new book Ruby, Blue and Blanket and to celebrate the launch, the Illustration Cupboard held a fantastic evening reception. It also marked the start of an exhibition which is now running until 16th March, displaying original artwork from the book as well as rare original drawings. You can find out more here.
Here is a very sneaky peek of some photos from the evening, but keep your eyes peeled for lots more on the website next week.
PS. Can you spot the amazing Jane Hissey cake centrepiece? Watch this space for more information!
Jane's brand new picture book, Ruby, Blue and Blanket, is published this month and to celebrate its launch, Jane has an exhibition at The Illustration Cupboard in London. An array of original artwork will be on display, with a selection of the published artwork and some rare original drawings offered for purchase. Artwork can be previewed here. The exhibition runs from 28 February until 16 March so there's plenty of time to go and see Jane's meticulous artwork introducing three vibrant new characters.
This weekend Jane was at the Imagine Children's Festival at the Southbank Centre where it was all about the kids taking over! The festival was transformed BY children FOR children and hosted the top names in children's literature, dance, theatre and art. Children came along to hear Jane read from Little Bear's Trousers as well as meeting the real toy characters and hearing all about how Jane creates her illustrations and wonderful stories. With a chance for children to get their books signed, it was a lovely day and great to see so many people having fun! The festival is running until Sunday 24 February with lots of free things to see and do - a great place to visit this half term holiday! Click here for a full programme of events.
