Author: Collective of award-winning illustrators is to launch an immersive, collaborative exhibition in London
To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the disappearance of the USS Wasp in the Bermuda Triangle, the Drawn Chorus Collective is presenting AHOY!, a nautical illustrative imagining of mysteries, tales of the sea and wonders of the deep.
AHOY! is an immersive, collaborative exhibition between collective illustrators and guest artists. Displayed at London's Espacio gallery, the show runs from the 28th of August until the 2nd of September 2014.
Drawn Chorus is a group of talented illustrators working together to create zines, crafts and shows.
Among the over twenty-strong Drawn Chorus are illustrators who have been shortlisted for the AOI awards, annual Folio Society competition, Macmillan Children's Book Prize, 3x3 Magazine show and Threadneedle Prize. Members have also worked for a number of well-recognised brands and publishers.
AHOY! also marks the launch of the Collective's first graphic novel anthology, Tales From the Deep.
The Collective said Ahoy! will be much more than just an exhibition- the space itself is being curated to create an immersive environment to help bring the work to life with themed food, a window mural, interactive exhibits, gallery shop and more.
