Illustrators' exhibition and craft market this weekend
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!
