Illustrators' exhibition and craft market this weekend



This weekend I will be taking part in an inaugural market which will be part of Illustrators Australia's annual 9 x 5 show.  (Last year's 9 x 5 post here.)  As usual, illustrators were sent a 9 x 5 inch piece of wood in the mail, on which they were to paint an illustration in according to a set theme.  This year's was Carnivale, and it has resulted in some fantastic work.
My piece is entitled Carnival Mask.  It was one of those pulling-teeth projects I must admit: I avoided doing it until the last minute and virtually had to be tied to my chair, possibly not unlike some circus act.  And not unlike some circus act, I ended up performing and came up with something I was mostly OK with.  This and that could be better...or different...but hey -- there is only one way to learn, and that is by doing.  I have finally realised.
The market and exhibition will be at Space 39.  I will have a full selection of cards and prints, a small selection of mirrors and wooden items, as well as the exhibition entry above.  Please come and say hello!
