About Us


There’s no doubting ILLUSTRATED is home-grown.  Formerly known as ‘Showcase Cities’, we began in 2010 with a series of small, regular East London events featuring local artists.

Over the last 7 years we’ve delivered 80+ creative events, experimenting with different formats, venues and disciplines. This early process of trial and error has helped shape our company into a valuable platform linking artists with professional opportunities.

ILLUSTRATED 2017 brings together some of the brightest visionaries in contemporary illustration – an opportunity to see some of the biggest names in the business and glimpse beneath the surface to check out some of tomorrow’s most promising talent.  Coupled with a vibrant programme of live art, music, seminars & workshops it’s set to be an exciting few days.

2017 also sees the introduction of the IWS (Illustrated world series) … A prestigious collection of live tournaments set to propel talented illustrators onto the world stage – more here
