Collective Nouns Illustrated
Back in March we teamed up with the Owl and Lion gallery and the West Port Book Festival, challenging you to illustrate your choice of collective noun from the All-Sorts.org index. We were thrilled with the response. Artists and illustrators from all round the world expressed their interest. The high quality of submissions meant that it was a tough job for our judges. You can see the winning entries below.
The winning entries have been screen printed by Isabelle Ting, and will be on display at the Owl & Lion Gallery from 15-27th June, 2010. You can purchase an artists’ book featuring all 15 illustrations as well as individual prints at A4 size.
