We are the 5% Zine

Josh's friend Chris, who he works with at Red, invited Josh and I to contribute to a zine he was curating. The theme was 'We are the 5%', which refers to the creative industry making up 5% of all industry in the world. It's also a bit of a reference to the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement, and the fact that most of us in the creative industry are part of the 99%.

You can see mine and Josh's contribution below (side by side). You can also check out the rest of the pages here.

Illustration for DIVA Magazine (December issue 2011)

When I got home from work today, a big white envelope was waiting for me with the most recent issue of DIVA magazine inside of it! I did a illustration for a column called 'Diatribe' a little while back, which can be found in the December issue of the magazine. The column talks about the 'LGBT community', and what it means to different people. DIVA is a lesbian lifestyle magazine, and can be purchased from your local shop or supermarket, or via the DIVA website. Here are a few different versions that I did for them, as well as the final image printed in the magazine:

I can't wait to sit down and read the magazine this weekend when I finally have some time off. I thought it was very nice of them to send me a free copy in the post, it was a great surprise and made my day so much better.

I can now call myself a published illustrator, how exciting!

Getting back into things

During these last few weeks I've been trying to get back into making work on a regular basis, as I need to get used to being creative even when I'm not working on set projects or commissions. There are a lot of things going on at the moment: Kat is making us a brand new website for our collective, which will look great as soon as it is up and running. I have had my first illustration commission for a magazine, and I have also been in touch with a nice little artist shop here in Brighton who are interested in selling some of my work, as well as a web gallery that will hopefully be selling one of my prints some time during the next few weeks. I will get back to all this later, and make blog posts as soon as I have more to tell you.

Today I joined LinkedIn after a friend told me about it. I don't know if I'll use it much, I guess time will tell. I said I'd never join Twitter because I thought it would be too confusing, but I use it quite regularly now and think it's a great place to find out about interesting people and their work. Anyway, if you're also on LinkedIn, why not connect with me?

Photos from the Aspex Art Fair

Aspex Art Fair was a great experience, and I am glad that I was invited to take part in it. One of the girls suggested that they should set up another one around Christmas, which I thought was a brilliant idea. I met some really lovely and talented people this weekend,  and I thought the volunteers at the gallery had done a good job of arranging it all. They were all very friendly and helpful and made it a pleasant experience for all the artists involved. One to watch is Emma Seymour with her hand embroidered illustrations. Some day, I will own one of her pieces! They are absolutely beautiful. Here are some photos from the event:

You will have to excuse the quality of the photos: I could only bring my little camera as I didn't have room to bring my DSLR as I had far too much to carry with me on the train from Brighton to Portsmouth anyway.

I have decided that I want to start up my own little Etsy shop soon, where I will be selling a selection of my prints. Watch this space for more information.
