Fresh from illustrating the story of Life of Pi as part of World Book Night, Essex-based design and illustration duo Lauren Baker and Phil Howell, aka The Hidden Dingbat Collective, are taking live drawing to an extreme this Red Nose Day.

With pens and pencils in hands tomorrow evening, they will be ‘transcribing’ the entire Comic Relief event as it happens, live at 15 Queen Street, Colchester’s creative hub. All this will be streamed using Kinura, with the pair’s pal, Jason Cobb, reporting via Twitter.

Baker and Howell will be auctioning off the finished work, after attempting to get as many of the celebrities taking part in the programme as possible to sign it.

More details are available on their blog.
