carnet de voyages immobiles

So here's another thing that's been happening for me recently.
Here are some photos from the printers who are printing a new book. My book.
 When I went to Clermont Ferrand's wonderful 'Rendez-vous Carnet de Voyage' exhibition last year I got to meet some publishers.
And one of them took a shine to me - well, took a shine to my work.
 These photos tell the tale of what's been happening since then.
 Next week the books will be at the publishers and I'll be back in France in November to promote it.
It's insane really. When I started drawing a few years ago, this would have been one of those things I would have dreamt of happening whilst not really believing it actually would. It still seems a bit odd. But that is indeed a book about my work and I really will be going to France to promote it. As I said, insane.

"It is all about belief Andrea. I remember that conversation when it all started off. The photies of your book in print made me fill up. I CAN believe you did it. You is awsum." x

Alibobs said...

" Andrea, i remember a conversation at work with you a couple of years back when you were 'Having a go'. Look at you now. It's all about belief, your work is amazeballs. The photies above made me fill up, I know how much this means to you, and how hard you work. You keep going from strength to strength. I guess your mind is blown. Go girl." x

Thank you thank you thank you!
Yes, Ron (and anyone else who asked), it is in French and English, but to be honest, there are very few words. It's all drawings!

I'm s touched by your response I can't tell you. Hope to see some of you at Clermont Ferrand this year.

Thanks and Merci.
