A Drawing a Day: A pop up exhibition by David Litchfield

A Drawing a Day: A pop up exhibition by David Litchfield

Last year, illustrator David Litchfield decided he needed a challenge.

So, on 1 July 2010 he embarked on a mission to create a drawing a day for an entire year. Each day, David posted a new drawing on his blog and Facebook and as word spread so did his following.

Over the last 12 months, David’s project has been featured in (amongst others): Ballad of… magazine, Digital Artist Magazine, Creaturemag, Neurobalsto magazine and Lost At E-Minor.

This June David finally completed his challenge and to celebrate this achievement, We Are Bedford is hosting a pop-up retrospective at one of the empty shop in Bedford’s Castle Quay area. On Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th August, visitors will have the chance to see all 365 drawings displayed together in this unique exhibition which takes place at 24 Castle Lane, Bedford, MK40 3US. Frames for the event have been kindly donated by the good people of Bedford and The Art Centre on Howard Street.

This exhibition represents the first event in a range of empty shops events enabled by an RSA Catalyst grant.
