Last night the NUCA illustration course held an auction to raise money for our end of year degree show. The aim was to make £500 and hopefully we achieved our target. It was a fun night with a great turn out and we even had a professional auctioneer from Keys to guide us through the bidding wars. The auctioneer was great and kept a good pace for the evening, it felt like we were on cash in the attic! There was a good selection of work donated by students, ex students and professional illustrators from the likes of Rob Ryan and Eric Carle (the creator of the hungry caterpillar. Here are a few photos from the evening and I'll keep you posted on the final sales figure.

A good turn out.
The Bar - we ran out of wine in around 10 minutes!
