1000 Tiny Fun Palaces

1000 Tiny Fun Palaces

Life isn't going back to normal for a long time - we know that now. Fun Palaces, like many other organisations, have had to adapt quickly. They obviously can't accommodate large gatherings so instead, their weekend in October is going to be about many tiny community-led ones. This is the latest drawing for them which shows people doing that - sharing skills and activities from their front gardens or a balcony; flying kites, playing music, dancing, gardening, sewing etc. They are calling it 1000 Tiny Fun Palaces. I love this idea and I loved illustrating it.

These are some of the recent illustrations I did for Fun Palaces. They wanted me to illustrate both activities that can be done alone or in pairs but also in groups for when we come out of lockdown. Fun Palaces can be held almost anywhere so we have churches, trains, libraries...

Tiny Revolutions of Connection

I absolutely loved designing this logo for Fun Palaces. I've worked for them many times and it is always a joy, but this one was particularly lovely to do. Tiny Revolutions of Connection is about the tiniest of connections, person to person. On their website they are sharing practical suggestions of ways people can connect a little more in their local community or simply pass the time creatively in self isolation. There are so many incredible and inspirational ideas - take a look here Tiny Revolutions of Connection

 

 

 

 

Updated Fun Palaces Illustration

Updated Fun Palaces Illustration

I've just completed an updated version of the Fun Palaces illustration I did in 2013. The new scenes depict the sort of activities that go on in the Fun Palaces, now that they have been running for several years. When I initially drew, the scenes were vaguer, either 'science' or 'art' or maybe a story telling. This time I had specific activities to draw on, as well as photographs. The Fun Palaces are continually evolving so I look forward to amending the image again in a few years time...
