A Scribble of Illustrators, running from May 1-7, will take place at Centrespace Gallery, and will showcase a diverse range of techniques and skills, as well as hosting a variety of readings and workshops over the bank holiday weekend.

Included in the line-up are locals Gwen Millward, who loves drawing bugs and has illustrated for a number of popular publishers, Joe Berger, who won World Book Day Illustrator 2010, and Donough O'Malley, illustrator of the popular book series The World of Norm.

Other exhibitors include, Paula Bowles, Jo Empson, Yasmin Ismael, Sean Julian, Steve Lenton, Henning Lohlein, Lauren Tobia and Sarah Warburton.

In addition to exhibiting work from past, present and future publishing triumphs, each of the illustrators will be creating a new artwork for the show, illustrating one of their favourite collective nouns.

The exhibition runs daily from 11am-5pm. More details of the event and workshops will be announced on the Facebook page 'A Scribble of illustrators exhibition'.
