Magic Cloak Print Giveaway


 A5 Cloak Giclee Print by Lesley Barnes

I'm sure UK illustrator / animator Lesley Barnes needs no introduction. Many of you will remember Seven Little Houses, a marvellous short film she co-animated with Thereza Rowe , which I featured early last year. I am a fan of both artists and loved their collaboration. Lesley graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2006 and made her mark in the animation world thanks to her award-winning, must-see short Herzog and The Monsters "for anyone who loves typography, about a small boy who steals words, a forest full of monsters and lots of vintage penguin books".


Needless to say, Lesley boasts an impressive animation and illustration portfolio and her work is very much in demand. Recent projects include artwork and animations for jazz musician Kit Downes' new album Quiet Tiger.

If you've seen Herzog and The Monsters you won't be surprised to learn of Lesley's passion for books. In addition to her illustration and animation work, she has a small etsy shop where she sells handmade leather bookmarks and a few of her prints.


Lesley is kindly offering Kickcan & Conkers' readers the chance to win one of her beautiful signed and numbered A5 Magic Cloak giclee prints as well as giving two bookmarks for runners up. If you would like your name in the hat please leave a comment below. As usual, anyone who spreads the word via twitter, facebook or any other network gets an extra entry.
The giveaway runs until 6pm (18h) CET Sunday 6th March. I will announce the winners the same evening.

Good Luck!

Si vous voulez participer à ce jeu pour gagner cette magnifique dame  toute en couleur de Lesley Barnes (impression Giclée, format A5) laissez-moi un commentaire, faisant attention de me laisser votre adresse mél. Lesley offre également deux marque pages en cuir pour le deuxième et troisième gagnant. Vous aurez deux possibilités de gagner si vous relayez l'info par twitter, facebook ou tout autre réseau social.
Fin du jeu dimanche 6 mars à 18 heures.
J'annoncerai le gagnant le soir même.


Bonne chance!
