ELCAF 2013 was hosted at the historic York Hall in Bethnal Green, reaching visitor figures of over 3,000. The bold and colourful identity this year was left in the reliable hands of Andy Rementer, an illustrator and artist from the USA whose work has been featured in sources including The New York Times, MTV and Creative Review.

Activities included talks by Jon McNaught and Matthew the Horse, an interview between Paul Gravett and Blexbolex, live drawing sessions, Toy Hacking workshops, and a huge range of exciting new work on show from local and international exhibitors.
