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!

The London Book Fair can be a rather depressing experience for creative types – what with all those partition walls and business-types doing business-type things – so it’s nice to see the artistic side of books making a bigger appearance this year. The Bookseller today published the final list of ten illustrators who have won a place to show their work at the LBF.

Clever chops. See more of Christopher’s work here: http://www.artypeeps.co.uk/christopherwilson.html and here: http://www.oberphones.com/. If it’s an illustrative design you want, he’s your man.
Last Wednesday (22 April) Artypeeps hosted a book design, illustration and photography exhibition at the Troubadour Gallery in Earls Court. This was a one-day event to coincide with the London Book Fair and it was the first exhibition by the Artypeeps collective.
The response from guests and visitors was overwhelmingly positive, with many people commenting on how refreshing it was to see the artistic side of book publishing gain more prominence.
We plan to repeat the exhibition next year but, in the meantime, stay tuned for details of the next Artypeeps event.
