Gab #15. A Get Together For Creative Folk.
Thu 4 May 2017, 19:00 – 21:30 BST
Join us at Gab #15 for a night of creative & design talks featuring:
Mr Bingo was born in 1979. In 1980 he started drawing. There wasn’t a lot to do in Kent. Mr Bingo is called Mr Bingo because when he was 19 he won £141 at the Gala Bingo. He’s been making it rain ever since.
Over the last fifteen years he has worked with hundreds of clients across a wide range of media; you might have seen his illustrations in TIME, Esquire, QI, The Mighty Boosh, The New York Times and on Channel 4. He is a regular in the New Yorker.
In 2015 he launched a kickstarter to fund a book of his hugely popular Hate Mail project. This was a turning point in his life and he realised that if the public were willing to fund his silly ideas, maybe he could turn this into a ‘career’ and stop working for clients for ever, which he did.
Dan Woodger is a London based illustrator who creates vibrant character based work for magazines to murals and lots in between. His clients include Google, Microsoft & The New York Times. Hear about Dan’s career highs and lows including the story of how an obscure 2am email eventually lead to Dan becoming the center of a bizarre game of tug of war between Coke & Pepsi.
With over 10 years experience in the industry, Lisa & Laura decided to take the leap and launch their own design studio, ilka. Join them as they talk through their somewhat random journey, from creating yoga pants to designing a brewery.
The ballroom will be open from 7pm (no early access due to an event brefore) but you can grab a beer in the downstairs bar (if you wish!) before the talk. Talks will start around 7:30, wrap up just after 9 and the bar will be open downstairs following for those that wish to hang about!
Tickets for this Gab will skin you a mighty £10. YES - that's a whole £10. We'll still pick up the tab for the venue but we need some sweet cash money to pay for other expenses (hotel, travel, extravagant riders etc). Blame Brexit! The ticket price includes Her Majesty's VAT of 20% and an eventbrite booking fee of £1.
