Chris Riddell, Children’s Laureate 2015, champions the joy of doodling.
In the first event of its kind Chris will be doing a Q&A with a difference. He will draw his answers and the lucky questioners he picks can take their doodle-answers home with them
Chris is the genius behind a vast range of children’s books that children and adults revisit time and time again. There’s Alienography, the Ottoline and Goth Girl series, and for older readers The Graveyard Book, and The Sleeper and the Spindle, written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris. He also illustrated The Edge Chronicles and Russell Brand’s Pied Piper of Hamelin. He has twice won the coveted Greenaway Medal and still manages to produce political cartoons for The Observer.
See him in action in this live drawing tour around the wonderful world of Chris Riddell. Wildly inventive and richly entertaining, for anyone who can hold a pencil – come and watch as it takes on a life of its own….
