On Wednesday 27 April the Fred Aldous Leeds team will be heading over to Outlaws Yacht Club for the first ever Illustration Showdown Leeds.
Illustration Showdown is an interactive art event that started in Southampton, went on to Bristol, then Manchester & now has started up in Leeds.
The Leeds organiser, Ash, told us how they discovered Illustration Showdown after being asked to sell Ladyfuzz, the zine they help run, at the event in Manchester. After experiencing the atmosphere and seeing how the event was an opportunity for like minded people who had a love for art and illustration to get together, Ash decided to bring it to Leeds.
On the night, artists will battle it out in pairs and it will be the crowd’s decision who wins and makes it to the next round. Alongside the artists battling there will be stalls where you can by the creative wares of local creatives and DJ Todd “JD” Malloy will be providing the music for the evening.
The artists who will be battling it out:
Joe Atkinson aka Jahoer
The Pied Piper
Liam Hill aka Highgreen Dawn
Estate Supply co.
Leah Rose aka Pochlight
Cous Cous Bang Bang / Lucy Hawkins
