Pomegranate Illustration
12 December 2012

Remedy Quarterly

Remedy Quarterly, a beautifully made food magazine from the US had a launch party for their newest “Comfort” issue and asked previous contributors to illustrate their idea of comfort food for their exhibition at the Beginnings Gallery in Brooklyn. As a big fan of the slow and laborious process involved in eating pomegranates, they are my comfort food of choice. I wish I could have gone to the launch party, the gallery looks amazing!

The Enchanted Forest at Foyles

I am really excited to be part of this exhibition in honour of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales 200 year anniversary. Curated by Emma Block, this show collects the work of Emmeline Pidgen, Laura Barrett, Yelena Bryksenkova, Lesley Barnes¬†and Natsuki Otani and draws inspiration from the well known fairy tales of our childhood as well as slightly more obscure stories from the original collection. The exhibition runs until the 7th of December and it’s free! Foyles is a great place for Christmas shopping anyway so definitely stop by if you can. All the work on show is also for sale so if you’d like a handmade screenprint ( gold no less!) e-mail me for details.
