For a second year running we seized the opportunity to be part of the House of Illustration-organised Illustrators' Christmas Fair in London. It is always an enormous pleasure to meet – often for the first time – collaborators, supporters and customers at these rare occasions. Our stand at this cheerful event already attracted a lot of attention at last year's well-visited 2016 fair and was once again a long but great day out on this chilly but sunny Saturday in 2017.
