The Society of Killustrators

Founded by a band of illustrators, this loose group was built to hone a craft, further a trade, and stay in contact. Until now this sect of close friends has functioned on an invite-only basis. It's a creative game with no winner, and a chance to see how people in our field answer the same riddles laid before them.

Should you choose to participate, just take up a post, illustrate, meet the deadline and submit accordingly.

Laura Buxton released a helium filled balloon during celebrations for her grandparents’ gold wedding anniversary in Blurton, Staffordshire, in June 2001. Attached to the balloon was her name and address and a note asking the finder to write back. Ten days later she received a reply. The balloon had been found by another Laura Buxton in the garden hedge of her home in Pewsey, Wiltshire, 140 miles away. Both Lauras were ages 10 and both had three year old black Labradors, a guinea pig, and a rabbit.
