The launch for our latest exhibition When I am Big went down a treat- as did the sweets we served to get everyone in the real party mood. It was a fantastic evening and we would like to thank Kamilla and Emilie and, of course, all of those who came. For those of you who missed it, here's a little info on the exhibition...
The result of a creative collaboration between the London based duo Emilie Fjola Sandy and Kamilla Weinhardt, When I am Big is a photographic exhibition exploring the lives of some of the most successful creatives on the British scene. Showcasing childhood dreams, the colourful exhibition of over 25 photographs brings together for the first time a number of people who normally work behind the scenes yet have, for once, put themselves in the spot light.
Among others, the shots portray Jasper Goodall, illustrator and artist at the forefront of the reinvention of illustration during the late ‘90s, Nicolas Roope, director of creative agency Poke London and BBC journalist and milliner Mary Jane Baxter.

Many of us know and love the picture books Gallop! and Waddle!, bought to us by Rufus Butler Seder, well... now the genius of scanimation has bought us Star Wars: A scanimation picture book and, once hearing about it, we could do nothing but get straight onto the publisher and order it in.
Imagine: the first Star Wars book that actually moves, bringing to life the most memorable scenes from the epic: Obi-Wan battles Darth Maul The Millennium Falcon zooms away from an exploding Death Star Luke rides a galloping Tauntaun, Yoda twirls his green lightsaber, Boba Fett blasts up, up and away! And of course the most memorable scene of all—red and blue lightsabers flashing, Luke and Darth Vader fight the ultimate battle between good and evil.
Star Wars: A Scanimation Book presents 12 of the most memorable scenes, in a landscape, i.e., movie format. It’s an homage from an artist obsessed with the earliest forms of capturing visual motion to an artist obsessed with the most advanced. But that’s not what young fans will care about—this is having pure movie magic in the palm of your hand, to replay again and again.
