Chirp chirp! In a long-awaited merger the Artypeeps network is now part of The Curved House, a creative agency working primarily for publishers and authors. Please visit www.thecurvedhouse.com to find out more.
This blog will shortly migrate to The Curved House but we will continue to have our twice-yearly Artypeeps drinks nights and will keep the network active through Facebook.
Thank you to all of the Artypeeps crew who have supported the various endeavors and made our network the special little community that it is.
Ahoy peeps! Those of you in the Artypeeps Facebook network will know that we have almost 900 Facebook friends all around the world. We want to get our network up into the thousands so we’ve now started a fan page. We’ll be profiling some of our favourite designers, illustrators, artists and other wonderful creatives on this new page. We’ll also be handpicking fans of our page to profile their work so we need to see lots of talented peeps liking the page!
Visit the new Artypeeps Fan Page, click ‘LIKE’ and then spread the word to all your friends. Thanks!

We’ve been working hard this month to stay off the booze and save our beer money to spend on books so on 1st November we’ll be throwing a little drinks party to retox and celebrate the end of Sober October. All welcome but please RSVP (see invite) as numbers are limited.
The event is kindly sponsored by Naked Wines (in keeping with our commitment to supporting independent businesses) and will be hosted by the lovely Treadwells bookshop in Bloomsbury.
If you don’t already know about the campaign visit the Sober October website to find out more.
