Blog Catch Up: Animation in 'London Stories: 2014 Serco Prize for Illustration' Exhibition at London Transport Museum

My 'Our Town' animation (which can be viewed at Joymask's Youtube channel here: can now be viewed a bit more formally, too. 'Our Town' is on display through early April at London Transport Museum in the 'London Stories' show, an exhibition of 50 illustrations and 5 animations selected from over 1,000 entries for the 2014 Serco Prize for Illustration.

Several photos (of somewhat debatable quality) from the exhibition private view are yonder below. A lovely time was had by all, and I even got to wear a jingly little badge with the TFL sign on it that read 'Rebecca Hendin: Featured Animator,' which all felt very fancy indeed.

Blog Catch Up: Illustration for Passing Clouds

I also recently did the poster illustration and graphic design for East London venue Passing Clouds' bluesy, swingy, festive club night, The Cakewalk Cafe:

Blog Catch Up: Olfactory Illustration

I created an editorial illustration to accompany an article about the olfactory system by Apolline Saillard in the upcoming Central Saint Martins MA Culture, Criticism, and Practice + MA Communication Design collaborative publication. The publication launch will take place soon at the Whitechapel Gallery in East London.

Blog Catch Up: Integrating Knowledge Exhibition at Somerset House

I've neglected my blog rather badly over the last several months due to Masters Degree madness, but it's time for many-an-update going back through mid-2013! Firstly, some images from the Integrating Knowledge Exhibition my work was part of at Somerset House in spring 2013.

I worked with a small team of people from Central Saint Martins MA programme and the Kings College London research department to produce a project following the path through London outlined in Virginia Woolf's 'Street Haunting.' I created illustrations based on parts of the story, then superimposed the illustrations into relative locations along the 'Street Haunting' path.

A few of my illustrations, and images of them superimposed into the London cityscape:
