I am up and running!

It feels like I haven't updated this in a while, although I think it's only been a week or so. This post is to mainly announce that MY WEBSITE IS FINALLY DONE (for the most part - still got a few bits of work to put up). I figure it's important that I have it working and up-to-date by the time of Drawgasmic and New Designers.

Speaking of New Designers, I am seriously behind on getting some more edith prints done. I've been at Glastonbury Festival for the past week (Which was quite possibly one of the best experiences of my life! Highly recommend!) and I'm also behind on packing for the move to my new place. Argh! Stressful and wonderful times!

I hope you're all well. See you after New Designers now, I reckon!

It has arrived!

So, my work has arrived in St.Louis, MO without a hitch! Thank you postal service, you have served me well!

If you guys want to do me a huge favour, then please promote the show as much as humanly possible. Even if you don't live in St.Louis, spreading the world will still give Cranky Yellow more publicity, along with all the artists exhibiting. Just head on over to the website to nick the html for a banner and promote!

New Website

My website has been "Under Construction" for an absolute age now. Today I finally found myself with nothing in particular to do other than my washing, so I sat down and got to work on redesigning it. I'm quite happy with it thus far, so I thought I'd give you guys a sneak peak at the new layout, which is all hand-drawn and put together in photoshop.

Drawgasmic & La Môme Piaf

Something exciting I came across just this week is Drawgasmic. It is basically an exhibition and book aiming to promote independant artists, illustrators and designers from across the globe. The exhibition is in July and the coffee table book will be released in conjunction with this.

I created a brand new print to submit for the occasion. I only managed to get it posted this afternoon though so I'm peeing myself just hoping it reaches Cranky Yellow by next Friday so it can be included in the event.

The piece just fell into place from some mindless doodling I've been doing this week. I've been listening to and thinking about Edith Piaf a lot and so my print is the outcome of that I guess!

Find it in my Big Cartel Shop soon.

GDI Degree Show 2010

Well, I've come to the end of the road. My degree show was last Friday (4th), which means my undergraduate education is over. I haven't really had the chance to think about what that actually means yet because I've still had so much to do this past week, but we took the show down today and I have to say, I'm feeling quite sad now.

Still, enough of that. This isn't a secret diary. The show itself was an absolute success. I personally still feel quite overwhelmed by the amount of praise and attention we all received, and I'm immensely proud to have been part of such an amazing group of creatives. I'm going to miss them all a lot.

I was far too busy at the show and during the week to get any decent pictures taken, but I got a few snaps of my boards today before we dismantled the room.
