Hello! I don't think I've mentioned this yet, so here it is: I'll be attending Finders Keepers market in Sydney, May 7th & 8th! Hooray! First business trip to Sydney. So if you're in Sydney and happen to come along, please come and say hello!
I'm sharing a stall with wonderful Emma of benconservato and Sarah of flossy-p - they are truly amazing artists and I'm so excited to hang out with them for a couple of days!
I'm taking to the market many of my existing products, and a couple of new things. I've decided to take along just a little handful of original illustrations. The light in my studio is always so beautiful in the afternoon at this time of year, so I cracked out my inks & watercolours and have started a few of these.
Depending on the reaction to them I might do some more to sell in my shop too - when I used to make illustrated purses every one was unique and it was fun just to draw something crazy sometimes, which I miss. It's totally different to my design process which needs to be quite precise. So I'm sure there will be more, actually.
I also have to confess - whenever I go anywhere where they give me a paper napkin, I save it (if it's unused!) I have a huge stash now, they are so handy for cleaning the ink off the end of my pen.
I'm also going to take just a few frames covered in my fabric. They look great as props, and are lovely hanging on the wall too (I've been trying them out around the house to see how they look!)
I've also just finished up a bunch of purple bird purses, they'll be in the shop later today.
