AJOTO Valentines day cards created by Hannah Jacobs

The notable British animator and illustrator Hannah Jacobs joined us at Fortnum & Mason to create a series of special edition Valentine's cards illustrated with the AJOTO pen.

Hannah is a British director, animator and illustrator. Her body of work crosses both illustration and animation and demonstrates an empathic study of a range of different subject matters. She works in 2D digital animation, using a hand drawn frame by frame process to create subtle abstract narratives using textured and layered drawing. She has enjoyed much success with her films screening worldwide at festivals including official selection for SXSW, Tribeca, Annecy Festival, LIAF, MONSTRA, and Rooftop Films.

To celebrate the spirit of St Valentine's Day we teamed up with our London retailer, Fortnum and Mason to share this wonderful afternoon. Visitors and customers to the F*M store had the opportunity to not only enjoy the live illustration by Hannah Jacobs, but also receive a complimentary handmade Valentine card by Hannah.

Whether you sketch, write or draw it impossible to dispute the power of pen and ink in expressing your love and admiration for someone special. The AJOTO team were also on hand to showcase the full collection and had a great time watching more new customers use our beautiful pens to write their special messages.
