Are you ready to go shopping? Well we are, or rather we were, at the East London Comics and Arts Festival last weekend. It’s Nice That loves an illustration fair like moths love a flame, but for those who weren’t able to make it, don’t worry, we’ve got a rundown of all the brilliant business that filled Hackney’s Round Chapel.
Illustration, photography or design fairs, fairs of all kinds really, are some of our favourite weekends of the year. It’s a day or two where many of our beloved creatives are in town, travelling in with suitcases stacked full with prints and publications for us to pour over, and write about for you lot to see a couple of days later.
