nesta's.fest21.com, the Signature Sketch collection of caricature filmic moments in the festival community...
I storyboard, and design film and tv sets. My sketchbooks are full of the character and environment settings of both cinema and literary worlds, they are my own original storyboard collection of festival travel sketches, with pen and paper.
Nesta's Sketch Collection covers The Berlinale Talent Campus, Edinburgh Film & Literature Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Viennale Festival, London BFI Film Festival, Discovering Latin America Film Festival, Hay on Wye Literary Festival at Hay ... the International Film Festival Summit talks and the fictional San Lorenzo Festival... aswell as various Key London cultural events, Millers Academy of Arts and Science, Intelligence Squared and YouGovStone. The more I sketch, the more I see.
