The Equestrian Society is a group of Icelandic Illustrators. They’ve decided to spend an afternoon in March and fill a Cat Café with cat illustrations drawn on site. The works will be for sale and all receivings will go to Kattholt, a local Cat Rescue.
Elín Elísabet Einarsdóttir, Árni Jón Gunnarsson, Helga Páley Friðþjófsdóttir og Lóa Hjálmtýsdóttir are four of the founding members of The Equestrian Society. The Society is for illustrators and the members try to meet once a week to draw together, discuss illustration and introduce artists and methods to eachother. This year, the Society has decided to reside at the Cat Café on Bergstaðastræti and draw in public. The café will soon fill up with cat drawings and passersby and café guests have an opportunity to see illustrators in action. All of the illustrations will be for sale and theall receivings will go to Kattholt, a local Cat Rescue.
