Massive apologies for the delay in the write up of The Picture Show Private View, which was at The Coningsby Gallery. I’ve been really busy at work but now I have two weeks off for the company shut down; I’ll be chilling out and doing some more illustration work. (So not exactly resting.)
Anyway, to round up The Picture Show Private View. The Private View went really, really well! The gallery was pretty much filled up throughout the night and plenty of drinks constantly flowing, like, non stop from Barefoot Wines! That night, lots of friends and families turned up to show their support. It was nice to see Emma Block and the Ballad Of ladies, Lindsey and Claire. Our tutors from our illustration course were there on the night. They were clearly very happy to see us and chuffed that we’ve all remained very good friends after graduating about three years ago.
Big thanks to Mags Potter Photography and Vinesh for taking photos during the PV night.
It’s so crazy that the seven months of planning went by so fast! We were all working really hard getting everything together and the amount of work that goes into organising an exhibition takes a lot of time.
Just after the exhibition, I had an interview for a CELTA course and I got on to it! My plan is to do the CELTA course and then swan off to Hong Kong for a while. I’ve said it for years that I’ve always wanted to go travelling and things are now starting to slowly come together. I’ll continue to do illustration on the side but I don’t want to rush into freelancing straight away. I’d rather wait until it picks up and then go with it. But for now, I want to be somewhere nice and hot!
I’ve been super busy over the past few months putting together new pieces of work for the show- scary stuff! All I can say is that they’re all handmade collages and I’m not showing any digital pieces. I thought, this time, it would be nice to show some original work.
Less than a week to go….. Hope to see you all there at the Private View!
