Drawing on Jacqueline Ayer: #IllustratingSummer

This August, we're asking you to share your summer illustrations with us. Be inspired by Jacqueline Ayer: Drawing on Thailand and get 'drawing on' wherever your summer takes you...


  • Competitions, Exhibitions

Whether you’ve taken your coloured pencils camping, packed your felt-tips in your beach bag – or are snatching a half-hour on your lunch break to sit in the sun with a biro and the back of an envelope, be inspired by Jacqueline Ayer: Drawing on Thailand to get 'drawing on' wherever you find yourself this August.

Jacqueline Ayer’s picture books, a remarkable addition to 1960s America, documented her family’s life around the back lanes of Bangkok. Whatever you’ll be ‘drawing on’ this summer, we’d love to see your work and will be updating this blog with a selection of your illustrations throughout August.

To join in, Tweet or Instagram us a picture of your piece, using the hashtag #illustratingsummer and tagging us, @illustrationhq in your post.

One pair of tickets to Jacqueline Ayer: Drawing on Thailand (and our other exhibitions open on the day of your visit) will be up for grabs for our favourite - and announced on Twitter - every week throughout August.
