Thank you to all those who made it down to the Small Wonders Private View at Boxbird Gallery in Brighton last night. Had a beautiful evening and was so happy to see people really looking at the work rather than heading straight to the bar.
Although, we did rather enjoy the bar area with it's Tuaca and ginger beer cocktails - a Boxbird special and beautifully crafted edible small wonders from Jess and Ratna - the miniature jam tarts were dangerously addictive.
I'm very happy with the show - just sad that I don't have to keep making work for it - it's one of those themes that you can really fly with.
Thanks to Alice, Graham, Jess, Ratna and Si for all there amazing help with setting up the show - it truly wouldn't have happened without you. And thank you to Catherine for my beautiful bottle of pink lemonade - it's so gorgeous I just want to look at it and not drink it.
We ended up in Wick Inn as usual where we suddenly remembered we hadn't taken any photos of the evening - not the best time to have a photo shoot. We became rather obsessed with my new shoes...
This photo captures me discussing the perils of becoming bloated after prolonged drawing sessions, while co-owner of Boxbird and fellow illustrator Graham Carter looks on.
