Yeah! Stereohype will come out of its virtual online shell again this Christmas to meet real people in real life. This promises to be socially awkward again—yet fun! Please do come and visit us again this year! We will have a scrumptious double-length Stereohype / FL@33 stand at the Illustrators' Winter Fair 2018 that takes place on Saturday, 8 December, 11am–5pm – this time indoors inside the entrance area of the Central Saint Martins next to House of Illustration, King's Cross, London, 2 Granary Square, N1C 4BH. We offer smiles and direct eye contact for all, we also give away free copies of our Stereohype 2004–2014 book (please ask for a copy if we are too busy to hand them out while you are there). As in previous years please do follow the squirrel and the silver helium balloons. More info at houseofillustration.org.uk. See pictures of our previous stand at last year's Winter Fair and our stand at the Summer Fair 2018 – all posted over at our design studio flat33.com.
