We are delighted to have award-winning illustrator Guy Parker-Rees as one of our Snailspace artists. His design was chosen by our Print Partner and sponsor, Captiv8.
Parker-Rees, who lives in Brighton, has come up with a design to celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of his much-loved books, “Giraffes Can’t Dance’. The design will be instantly familiar to many parents and children in the city.
He explained what he likes about the project:
“It is going to be brilliant to see them all together when they’re finished. I usually use watercolours so I’ve had to find my way with acrylics. With the schools decorating their small snails as well, Snailspace is a celebration of art with lots of people getting involved. I think being more snail is essential to health and sanity, I see it as mindfulness and staying in the moment a bit more.”
Don’t miss this snail in September.
