The Burgermat Show

The Burgermat Show was a group exhibition and food pop-up that I cooked up in collaboration with Daniel Young of Young & Foodish.
For the two-night only ticketed event on 27 and 28 June 2011, I invited 24 illustrators to create original burger-themed artworks to be displayed as high quality signed paper placemats all set on tables upon which attendees were served an amazing burger cooked up by chef Fred Smith specially for the occasion.

As well as the original London event, The Burgermat Show also popped up for one night only at The Royale Eatery in Cape Town, South Africa, and also in The Damson Diner in Dublin. The Royale Eatery still features the “Burgerac” burger on its menu that I designed in collaboration with them specially for the event.
