A few weeks has passed since our holiday in Turkey, and I still think about it occasionally, but it is slowly disappearing into that 'holiday that happened haze', you know the one?
The truth is, things have been busy around here recently. Last week was spent juggling work, and preparing for an exhibition I'm in, that opened last Saturday.
The main part of the exhibition is the Hockney Fairytale prints, which you can see in the distance in the above picture. And then you have the Berwick Illustrators section, which occupies the brightly painted section in the above photo.
My section of the exhibition is largely concerned with showing something of the process of illustrating a book, rather than presenting beautifully framed finished pieces. There are rough drawings, snippets of pages, and work ready for the printers, with the editors notes on acetate sheets covering the finished art work. Pieces of work aren't for sale, it's purely an exhibition of work.
The curator, Matthew put all the pictures in the frames, and the displays together, and I understand it was all done on a tiny budget, so I think that what he has done is fantastic.
I understand that there have been hundreds of people viewing the exhibition in the three days since its opening, which is marvellous to hear. And just a quick observation, my photos don't really do justice to the exhibition, it looks much more impressive in real life.
What else do I have to report then?! Well, you know the dress I've been knitting? Well, that's undergone quite a transformation, quite a dramatic one. I won't show you now, because I'm going off to my knitting group, but I will show you on Friday, and I think you might find it quite interesting! Cheerio my lovelies! Love Vanessa xxx
