I have two group exhibitions coming up. One is called ‘Distance’, organised by Romina Berenice Canet, a very energetic and talented argentinian artist and fellow member of ‘Drawn in Bristol’. 11 artists from England and 11 artists from Argentina (plus Romina) will be taking part in this two-part show- first exhibiting in argentina in the Casa Carnacini from the 6th-23rd January and then the show will be brought back to the UK for a second exhibition. It should be good! Here’s a sneaky peek of my piece titled ’10 Steps Away’:
A little late but I am not the best blogger, I treat my blog a little like a very casual journal. Anyway, during October, one of my pieces ‘Fishing’ was exhibited at the Grain Barge in Bristol(a really nice cafe/bar on a boat) alongside a variety of work from other ‘Drawn in Bristol’ members. This was our first big group exhibition but hopefully not the last as it was a very interesting show.
‘Fishing’ will also be exhibited alongside 5 other illustrators at the Mshed where I will also be selling some prints:)
During November I was lucky enough to be a part of the Drawn in Bristol pop-up shop in Cabot Circus. As part of the Pop-up Bristol project, 15 illustrators (inc myself) were able to set up a lovely shop for just over three weeks which allowed us to present our work to the general public in an accessible and very friendly environment.
It was a massive success. On a personal level, I not only sold quite a few prints and cards but I had a crash course in retail. It was definitely a steep learning curve. It was all pretty new for me: ordering bits and bobs from suppliers, handling printing orders, packaging suitably for sale, pricing work, inventories and even little things like reordering stock on the shop floor.
Here are some photos from our wonderful launch party:)
And here’s a short article!:
