Sova Magazine

Today I received Sova Magazine in the post!
I found out about this lovely little magazine from Johanna Tagada's blog http://www.bonjourjohanna.com/
It is an independent magazine that only prints 250 copies per issue, featuring photographers, illustrators and other creatives.
Included was a gorgeous poster which I am immediently going to pin above my bed, 'Sleep Solves Everything'. Stickers and a mini poster are a sweet little bonus as well.
I really recommend getting a copy!

Exhibition

My work is now being displayed in Bury St Edmunds and Norwich- I'm taking over East Anglia!

In Norwich Making Space is displaying three pieces of my work at the EPIC broadcast production house. Making Space is a wonderful idea to provide exhibtion venues to local artists. Have a look at their website to see the other artists that are participating.

In Bury St Edmunds I have entered my work into a gallery called Cavern 4, a charity gallery whose vision is that people with mental health problems to have the same employment opportunities as everyone else, and to be able to command the same wages. I am very pleased that they have excepted my work, and that I am able to support a charity with my artwork.

Brownie Hawkeye

Some friends went travelling and brought me back an old brownie hawkeye! It's one of the most thoughtful presents I've had for a while, and I'm very excited about starting to use it. I found out that you can use 120 film in it. So I'll bid for some on ebay and start shooting.
Also I found some old film from 2009 of New Yok that I took with my diana camera. Have a look here: flickr

Posting

My goal is to post something every day this week. I love reading blogs and feel that I should dive in and make this blog something enjoyable to regularly read. So here goes...
The window ledge behind my desk has temporarily become an art gallery. I've framed six pieces of my work, three pieces are going into a exhibition and the other three will be displayed in an art gallery.
The work looks really professional now, I kind of want to keep them all. But I hope they do well in being bought and showing themselves in other peoples houses.
