event Details

Enjoy an illustrated talk from satirical caricaturist and multi award-winning illustrator Anna Crichton – the mistress of pictorial puns.

Anna Crichton is one of New Zealand’s foremost illustrators and cartoonists, and the five-time winner and two time finalist in the New Zealand Qantas/Canon Media Editorial Artist Award (and as yet the only woman to win it). She is a regular contributor to the New Zealand Herald, Metro, The Listener and more, and has worked internationally for The New York Times, The Wall St Journal, Time Magazine, The Bulletin and The Australian.

Anna’s work is held widely in many public and private collections and is collected by the New Zealand Cartoon Library at the Alexander Turnbull Library. All Anna’s work is hand drawn with an old fashioned dip pen and brushes using permanent Aerocolour ink applied to archival watercolour paper.
