degree show...

...opening night was on Friday. i haven't known quite what to do with myself the last two weeks since uni finished. have been doing odds and ends of doodles and a bit of playing in the print room. i have some plans to actually illustrate a couple of the poems that i had originally planned to do for the honours project. as i can see a way forward with that and children's books are something i still very much would like to do but within my own strengths and way of working. this is a picture of me next to some of my work. next up is London and the 'new blood' show. to my complete and utter surprise, i was awarded 'best in show' alongside my fellow illustrator Jennifer. as per normal the tears fell but i was shocked and still am. i would like to thank everyone for their support over the last few years. studying illustration was difficult but i love illustration and here's to the future.
