migrating birds

June 15, 2017

A few months ago Philippa was contacted by Stephen Fowler – he of Rubber Stamp fame – and invited to be part of an exhibition called Migration. Each artist was asked to produce a single A6 postcard of a bird either perching or in flight. A total of 100-200 postcards will form an exhibition that hopes to draw attention to the plight of thousands of children and their families who are, as a result of oppressive regimes, violence or poverty, forced to migrate to safer places in the world.

The exhibition runs from 9-30 September 2017 at the International Centre for the Picture Book in Society (ICPBS) at Worcester University, in collaboration with BIBIANA, the International House of Art for Children in Bratislava, Slovakia and will coincide with the Biennale of Illustration in Bratislava (BIB) and its symposium.

Philippa’s response – produced a day before the dealine(!) used a simple letterpress block that was printed then hand tinted.
