Wed 23 May 2018
6.00pm - 10.00pm
The second issue of Blume Illustrated, an annual independent arts-focused magazine based in the Blue Mountains, launches on 23 May this year – and it promises to be an unmissable event!

“We’re fortunate enough to have iconic Australian illustrator and artist Michael Fitzjames as our special guest speaker at the launch, so the night is set to be a celebration of creativity in print,” says Faye Wilson, Creative Director of Blume Illustrated and founder of the Blume Project.

The second edition is dedicated to Katoomba poet Deb Westbury who died in April this year after a long illness. Two of her Katoomba poems are featured along with new, original work by celebrated Australian artists, poets and writers such as James Gordon, Jude Martinez, Ward O’Neill, Tohby Riddle, Michelle Streich and Wilson herself. It also introduces some new up-and-coming creatives including unpublished aspiring illustrator, 17-year-old Tessa Bunton who was mentored by Faye to create three illustrations for the magazine. The work featured in the magazine will form part of the next Blume Illustration Festival, scheduled for August 2020. The main exhibition for this festival is titled Black & Blue 2 and will be held at BMCC Gallery in Katoomba. Black & Blue, The Book will also launch during this festival. The first Black & Blue (Black Stories from the Blue Mountains) exhibition was held at the BMCC Gallery in 2014.
