Seven Stories with... Chris Haughton and Benji Davies

We were recently joined by Illustrators Chris Haughton and Benji Davies for a fantastic Ink and Drink event at Seven Stories. Everyone who attended enjoyed a glass (or two) of wine in our studio as Chris and Benji gave us an illustrated look at their careers to date and took us through their creative processes for their recent, published work.

We were lucky enough to sit down and get to know our guest speakers as they talked us through their relationship and inspirations before they offered some advice for budding illustrators looking to break into the industry.
