I’m a Busy Bee at the mo…

It’s been a while since i’ve posted on here, I’ve been super busy working on new books for the Bolognia book fair at the end of the month, alongside some other brilliant projects.

Some great stuff has been happening lately though that I just wanted to share…

The little Illustration collective that I’m part of has an exhibition up at Cherryleaf coffee house in Norwich all this month. It looks fab, and i’m dead proud to be part of a group of such lovely talented and organised people. We all took a classic book, and re-designed the cover art. They’ve come out brilliantly and everyone has done a fab job.

Autumn Clutter City

The past couple of weeks, I’ve been getting ready for the Autumn Clutter City at Norwich Arts Centre. 
It should be a good day, with live music, and lots of stalls selling arts, crafts and lots of handmade goodies. There’s always some pretty fab cakes there too. Yum. 

I’ve been expanding my stall a bit too, there will be lots of affordably priced illustrated earrings, notebooks, bunting and more.
Pop down and say hello! 

Clutter city!

I’m dead excited about being included in the spring Clutter City Market this year at Norwich Arts centre. There’s going to be lots of local artists and craftspeople selling their handmade goodies! 
If you’re about in Norwich on Sat 20th, then pop in and say Hello!

It’s been a while!..

Well, It’s really been far too long since I posted in here. So, quick roundup. After a busy end to 2012, working on a craft book, we had a nice, chilled out Christmas. Then January came around, and I got thrown into lots of exciting projects. Maps, Activity books and layout projects, never-ending snow, weddings and a holiday have come and gone since, and i’ve finally got a little time to post here.

I’ve also been gearing up to have a bash at some craft fairs this year. It’s something i’ve been wanting to do for a while now. There have been a couple of Pop up shops in the Jubilee pub I’ve used as trial runs, which went pretty well.

Despite being fairly busy with projects lined up, I’ve got lots of Ideas for self-initiated projects that I can’t wait to start. I think 2013 is going to be a good year.

Norwich Print Fair

I can’t get over just how quickly this year has gone! It really doesn’t seem a year since the last Norwich Print fair exhibition.

There were some fab artists at this years fair, and if I had more money, would definitely have bought something more than a couple of postcards, hopefully next year. There were just so many fantastic prints to choose from. There are certainly some new local artists I shall be watching out for (and saving up for).

I’ve been very inspired by this years fair, and I’ll be dusting off my lino cutting tools, and re-instating the Silkscreen at some point in the not so distant future.

• Some awesome linocuts by Rob Barnes
• Brilliant screen prints by Richard Horne 
• Amazingly intricate Linocuts by Vanessa Lubach (I especially loved the chickens)
• Lovely linocuts by HJ Jackson 
• Bold and colourful linocuts by David Jones
