Making, producing & self publishing is a labour of love and for me often not very time + financially friendly. This year I am trying even harder to finally work on/finish projects that either only seem to exist in my head or are extremely emotionally exhausting and time consuming to finish. I’ll have a bunch of things for half price at ODDBOD Art Market next week over @common_bar for you to take away with you.
👋🏾👋👋🏽👋🏼👋🏿 The next @makestuffclub workshop is coming up pretty soon (Saturday 31st March 2-6) & will be lead by the super talented @becky.mcgillivray who’s teaching us everything collage. There will be lots of therapeutic making, learning, sharing & networking. #makestuffclub is a creative skill-sharing space, with workshops lead by local emerging artists & practitioners & is open to anyone who seeks comfort through making. Link for tickets is in the bio & all funds from that go towards paying out workshop leaders + materials, as MAKE STUFF is an non funded project. We also encourage participants to become members of @partisancollective for as little as £1 in order to help sustain the space & make it more accessible.
Rickshaws & trucks (details) from Homeland - I used to compare patterns & collect all the words & phrases from these beautifully hand painted & decorated public transport (if you have any favourite quotes/poetry/song verses) then do send them to me!
I got to write & draw a love letter to my homeland as a part of today’s #GoogleDoodle for International Women’s Day on @google. It’s been the most wonderful, relieving & comforting process, thank to the amazing & hard working art directors @hulloitslydia & @alawinans for this opportunity & all of your support! So honoured to have my work alongside 11 incredibly talented & amazing women illustrators & designers #HerStoryOurStory 🙌🏽🌟
A Prayer - on longing & belonging, daily rituals, finding solace & gratitude. For @wearehereuk, an exhibition exploring women’s suffrage, dual identities & what it means to be British BME today. Panel discussions & workshop info can be found on www.we-are-here.co.uk. Opens on the 14-18th March at LSE Library, curated by the super talented @erinaniker & @jess__nash 🤲🏼
Thank you to every wonderful pup who came to the @makestuffclub, learnt about risograph printing with the super talented @somuchtoanswerfor & contributed ‘Dear future me’ letters towards the workshop calendar 🙌🏼📠🔵✂️✏️
