crystal palace festival
Here’s the official poster for this sure-to-be-exciting writer-illustrator-led event, organised by the remarkable Alex Milway. Garen Ewing drew the dinosaur on the mast, based on one of our local dinosaurs, which are really quite famous and why haven’t I been to see them yet? Probably because Crystal Palace is uphill on my bicycle and I am very lazy. (Note to self: that is a very poor excuse.)
Remarkable fact I learned from Alex the other day; Darwin’s ten-year-old daughter Annie died in Alex’s grandmother’s house. This is the same grandmother whom Edward Elgar used to bounce on his knee, that woman knew people.
