feathers fall around you and show you the way to go

Those of you who visit my blog regularly must be bored of hearing me say this; but there is just so much happening for me these days I can't keep up. Opportunities come and go before I've even had time to do anything about them. I suppose it's about prioritising but I'm not sure that I always get that right. People have often asked me for advice on becoming an illustrator and it's the same answer every time; don't ask me, I have no idea! I'm just muddling though it all.

A little while back I was asked to participate in a new little Moleskine project. The idea was to get a bunch of artists to decorate covers of Moleskine notebooks which would be placed for sale HERE. I was most excited to be asked, anything that associates my name with the beloved Moleskine is good with me, but by the time I got around to it it was too late and submissions had finished. This is typical with how things are going right now. But, I'm not complaining. It means there is a lot of interest in my work.

Anyways, the above little book is one I made for the project and as it was designed to go on sale then I've put it in my Etsy shop HERE.

I'd like to say my life was my own again, for a little while but I have another deadline lined up. My next project is my first solo exhibition at the Buxton Art Gallery. That's in three weeks. After that I intend to take stock and think about what happens next. Make some changes, particularly to my business and shop . That's unless anything else comes up in the meantime. But really, I'm really NOT complaining!

I completely understand! I feel so overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I have going on some times.

I was asked to participate in the Moleskine cover project launch too, and missed the boat!

'Feathers all around you,' it reminds me of a song of Neil Young.
This is nice to read; succes can come unexpectedly, the way you experienced.
I am happy for you.
