The exhibition was a success! And because I was so busy shoving wine into people’s hands and urging people to eat I didn’t manage to get any photos of the folks walking around looking at Simone. But I took one before it got busy and, because I’m chuffed with all the canapés I made, mostly of the spread. Because I know you want to see what I made.




Limited Edition prints are now available online. We’ve already made two sales with our Limited Edition prints, one on the night and one the very next day. This pleases myself and Natalia a whole load of lot. I thought I’d take the opportunity to say thanks to those who came (about 40 over the whole night) and to urge those who couldn’t make it to go see it now. It’s on at Oxford House till 31st January and it’s in the cafe so you can grab yourself a nice cuppa/java and stroll around. It’s a great building tucked away off the main road and it’s always got stuff going on in there as well as other artwork.
If you’d like to buy a Limited Edition print the information is below:
Style – Giclée print
Paper – Hahnemühle Photo Rag (308)
Size – 420mm x 520mm
Limited Edition Run – 50 of each image
They are for sale for £90 (which includes p&p) and you can browse them here.
And we’ll be doing a workshop in conjunction with the exhibition in the next week or so and we’ll have more news on that soon. No doubt I’ll be hollering on Facebook/Twitter/this blog here nearer the time.


Simone March 16, 2011

I’ve been working away on another project with talented illustrator, Natka The Great which is ongoing (you’ll see why in a moment). We’ve stumbled upon this engaging project which is akin to the writing game, ‘Consequences‘. I started the ball rolling with writing a short piece of flash fiction which in turn Natka added the next part of the story with visuals. Then she would draw the next segment and I would write the next piece of story…. And so on. We give each other no guidance or heads up about what we want to include, we literally just naturally take the story on a mini adventure each time and so far the results are exciting.


What’s more, it keeps up creatively stimulated. They’re quick flashes of something that are part of a bigger project. The one thing we’ve decided to do is a) keep doing one piece of text and accompanying illustration a month and b) keep it in line with one character. So what we’re doing is giving the viewer/reader one person to follow.


And that is Simone.



We previewed the first two month’s worth of work at Interrobang earlier this month and we got great feedback. It was quite breathtaking seeing them blown up bigger and hung with the text, I was really proud of what we’ve achieved so far. The idea is that we’ll keep returning to Interrobang as the collection progresses so regulars can follow the story. Also we’ll be aiming to hang them as an exhibition once the collection is complete at the end of the year.
