As advocates of promoting and sharing the joy of reading and story telling, Bright and the Doodle Bar are incredibly pleased to announce the next Storytime event occuring at the end of this month. With our ten years of industry experience, we understand the importance of taking a book beyond the book shelf and actively encourage every Bright creative to engage with their key audiences to drive discoverability and build the foundations of commercial success. Last year saw the yuletide success of our first Storytime Sunday, featuring Bright artists Nicola O’Byrne and Ben Mantle with their illustrated books Open Very Carefully(Nosy Crow) and Rudey’s Windy Christmas (HarperCollins). The event was a rousing success and a creatively indulgent Sunday was had by all. Read more about this event here.

Crackanory

Joint London commission Ruth Palmer for these retro portraits for Dave's Crackanory.

Currently splashed over the underground, the 48 sheet posters of six celebrities were painted in the style of 60's and 70's children's book illustrations. And to promote Dave's new Crackanory series, the portraits include David Mitchell, Vic Reeves, Johnny Vegas and Ruby Wax.  Ruth says "I love the painting styles of the old picture books and so this was a really enjoyable project to work on."

Read For Good

Keith Robinson's work for the charity 'Read For Good' continues with this latest set of illustrations. The images which are for a variety of uses such as bookmarks, certificates, sponsorship cards and posters, are to communicate the pleasure kids can get from reading. Last year, Keith designed the mascot and logo for the charity; Jamie and the orange balloon can be seen 'unifying' this set of images.
"'Read for Good' improves children's lives by encouraging and enabling children in primary and secondary schools to enjoy the powerful positive effects of reading for pleasure. In doing so these children also fundraise fantastic sums of money - to help seriously ill children across the UK."
