Illustrate Your Own Gig Poster

Illustrate Your Own Gig Poster

with Ben Brown and Blair Sayer

Prints + posters - from your brain to the page!

Illustrate and design your very own street poster with illustrator dudes Blair Sayer + Ben Brown.

In this 2.5 hr workshop, you'll have ample one-on-one time with Ben and Blair as you bring your design to life.

Oh! And because we like to make a real go of things, we'll serve some beers and snacks too. It's usually Mary's fried chicken, or some charcuterie and cheese from Continental, and a couple of tins from Young Henrys.

About Ben + Blair:
Ben Brown is a Sydney based illustrator, designer and artist. His work has appeared on countless CD covers, t-shirts and posters for performers like Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age and Pearl Jam, to You am I, Dune Rats and Cosmic Psychos. Ben has also provided branding, illustration and merchandise for events including the Big Day Out, Good Vibrations Festival, Homebake, The Falls Festival, Bowlarama, and the Australian Open of Surfing. He provides editorial illustration for magazine titles, including Mad magazine, Surfing World & Rolling Stone.

Blair Sayer has always loved to draw. When the New Zealand ex-pat was younger, his days were spent climbing electric fences, taunting medium sized dogs, and hoping for a rainy day so he could draw more.  Blair turned semi-professional in his mid-teens when he started cartooning for the local rag. Wellington School of Design was his next step, and after graduating in 1993, he has been illustrating ever since. Craft beer, tee shirts and gig posters are his favourite canvases.

About Blair Sayer

Blair Sayer has always loved to draw. When the New Zealand ex-pat was younger, his days were spent climbing electric fences, taunting medium sized dogs, and hoping for a rainy day so he could draw more. Blair turned semi-professional in his mid-teens when he started cartooning for the local rag. Wellington School of Design was his next step, and after graduating in 1993, he has been illustrating ever since. Blair styles vary, as he's easily bored and enjoys a challenge. His clients are varied as much, with craft beer, tee shirts and gig posters being his favorite canvases. Blair now lives in Glenmore Park (posh Penrith) and works in the city most days. He's always up for a chat, even more so a beer - and loves that he gets to enjoy both at his Cultivate Folk workshops!
