It’s been a bit quiet on the Tumblr front from me the last couple of weeks, but that’s because I’ve been a busy bee over the last month and haven’t had a lot of time to spare for new work! Here’s what I’ve been up to:
Firstly, I was part of a Cambridge Creative Network pop-up, one night only, exhibition at Duke House in Cambridge where art-buying was fuelled by wonderful food made by Stella Pereira. (I sold some prints there so yay!)
Then I was running a stall at the fantastic Illustrator’s Fair at the House of Illustration’s new premises in London, which I reviewed on my other blog here. I spent a week furiously drawing monsters in order to put together the ‘Colour Me, Chimera’ colouring book for this and you can still buy them here if you’re interested.
After this I had less than a week to get ready for another group show with the Cambridge Creative Network. The private view for this one was on Friday 4th and it will be running throughout July and August. It’s at a slightly remote but really lovely location called The Highwaymans. Check it out if you can, for a chance to see some great work by my fellow network members, such as Alan Rogerson (on Tumblr).
And finally, this week I had a break from frantically preparing for my own exhibitions and took a trip to the capitol to visit the London Illustration Fair at Hoxton Arches and attend the private view for the House of Illustration’s first exhibition; a really nice display of the works of Quentin Blake, including work in progress doodles, page layouts and original artworks for several of his books. I definitely recommend swinging by there if you happen to be at King’s Cross! It’s only a 5 minute walk!
Phew! So that’s what I’ve been up to this month. I don’t have anything big planned now for a while so I’m going to knuckle down and get on with some of my own work again. I’m planning to have my Bestiary Project series all finished by September so that I can print and sell 2015 calendars for them! They should be available online as soon as I’ve ordered them in but will also be making an appearance at the Mill Road Winter Fair and hopefully at a currently only-vaguely-planned Christmas Fair at the House of Illustration.
New work on the way soon! All my best to you my lovely followers.
