Illustrating Animal Farm

Hexham Book Festival




Showing at

The Main Theatre

Sunday 12 June: 5pm
Tickets: £5, £3

Award-winning illustrator Chris Mould brings George Orwell’s classic and visionary story of revolution to a brand-new audience with striking new animations in his trademark satirical gothic style. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to watch this sublime draughtsman at work - Chris will illustrate some of the characters from the book live, while he talks about the process of re-imagining a world-renowned text and shares some tips on how to tackle the art of animal illustration. 

Animal Farm is just an ordinary farm – until the animals revolt. They get rid of the irresponsible farmer. The other animals are sure that life is improving, but as systems are replaced and half-truths are retold, a new hierarchy emerges… Orwell’s tale of propaganda, power and greed has never felt more pertinent.
