Grab a discount on The London Illustration Fair 2015. And what’s the foodie connection you ask? You will have the opportunity to take a Food Illustration Course with specialist food illustrator Amelie Persson.

The London Illustration Fair 2015 will present the work of 50 emerging illustrators, from prints to beautifully crafted products, selected by creative agencies, publishing houses, illustration collectives and studios.

There’ll be artist-led talks and street food vendors, as well as a festive bar. However, once inside don’t miss the Food Illustration courses with Amelie Persson – this is one for the adventurous foodies, for yourselves or a great gift!

Amelie Persson is a Swedish-German freelance illustrator and writer. With a love of drawing food and kitchen supplies, she has three cookbooks with her own recipes published by the Berlin-based indie publishing house Jaja. She compares drawing to cooking, a creative process that involves your hands and your senses. “It’s about getting to know your preferred material, tools and set-up – in the kitchen as at the drawing table.”
