Miss Magpie's live illustration at Cabot Circus Shopping Centre

Miss Magpie was invited to work with the team at Cabot Circus Shopping Centre in Bristol, at a very special event called "A Shopping Affair". 

Two weeks previously she hand painted details about the event on to the glass balustrade for shoppers to see. Amongst the slick graphic vinyls around the centre, the artwork really stood out and caught the eye.

On the night itself there was a whole host of musical entertainment on offer, as well as discounts and offers in many of the stores. Niki was on hand to create bespoke illustrations of shoppers which were then often shared on Instagram and Twitter under the hashtag #ShoppingAffair.

The music and dance attracted some people to the area who told her that they wouldn't have normally been in a shopping centre on a Thursday evening. Niki illustrated men on their way to the mosque for Ramadan, a group of teenage boys, young families, and tourists as well as Cabot Circus regulars who had made the most of the discounts that many of the stores were offering. What a fantastic event!
