I can't believe it's the end of the year already! It's been an... interesting... year for the world, so I hope you're all cuddled up in a warm blanket, preferably with a mince pie and a nice cup of tea. You deserve it!
For the last newsletter of the year (and the decade, wow) I'm going to be chatting about my highlights of 2019, picking out my favourite bits of TV, music and other bits and bobs. I'll also be looking back at my time spent as a freelance illustrator so far and trying to figure out what on earth I'm doing next year!
Coming up this month: how I found my first 7 months as an illustrator and my best picks from 2019
It's the penultimate newsletter of the year! The Christmas dinners are calling (it's 31 days to go if you're reading this on the day of release), but there's still a few weeks of working left before the holidays.
Hopefully this blog will make that time a bit easier for a few people, especially if you're currently (or thinking of) working from home. It's something I've been doing for a few months now so I thought I'd share some titbits I've learnt during that time, and why I'm such an advocate of the remote-working lifestyle. I'll also be chatting about some Christmas items on my Etsy shop, so stick around for that!
Before you read on! A reminder that I will have a stall at the Crafty Fox Market at Mercato Metropolitano on Saturday 7th. It's a fabulous food court with loads of food and drink options, as well as a bunch of other crafty traders - so come and say hi if you can!
I'll also be exhibiting in the Catford cARTon Gallery in Ninth Life Pub from 12th-17th December, 12-6pm. For more info, check out last month's newsletter.
Coming up this month: how I work from home and a Christmas shop update
As we hit issue 05 of this newsletter, it marks 5 months since I graduated from Arts University Bournemouth (yikes). It’s also around the time of year freshers are getting stuck into their first year at uni. To celebrate this milestone, October’s newsletter is all about the university experience, and why the most important lessons don’t always come from the curriculum.
I’ll also be updating you on my experience at the Catford Arts Trail earlier this month, as well as round up of the next craft fairs I'll be attending this winter.
Coming up this month: a deep dive into university and a craft fair update.
