Well I had an absolutely brilliant weekend at the book fair. Not only were my books popular I also met so many wonderful people and was presented with so many opportunities. Being part of the book fair has further reassured me that my illustrations do have a place in the world, and chatting to buyers and book collectors really inspired me to 'keep on trucking' Id forgotten how much joy doing my illustrations had brought me, and seeing that same joy brought to the people who bought my work made the experience even more satisfying. I felt as though my illustration might be getting over shadowed by my performance, but realise that in the right content, both illustration and performance can bring both myself and others joy, and that is why I will always continue to be an artist, and never let any of my skills slip onto the back burner.
I am also part of an exhibition of postcards curated by Louise Atkinson called the Imaginary museum, which will be on display at the Tetley until the 22nd of march.
The imaginary museum is made up by 18 spate artists, visitors may select individual post cards to make up a set, making up their own imaginary museum,
Also I bless the day I met Louise Atkinson. She has been such a positive influence in my life ever since the day I met her, she has continued to encourage me both in my art and confidence and has helped me so much. I'm so lucky to have met such a talented and genuinely nice person, what a good egg , I love her very much!
