I am SO excited! Marie Knudson and Katie Kennedy from Tameside Art Galleries visited the studio today, to talk about an exhibition in 2009. I've never been much into exhibiting my work, as there's so much to do, and work doesn't sell easily. But this is really different. Marie and Katie are so lovely, with lots of exciting ideas, and they are happy to do all the difficult or boring bits for me; all I have to do is the fun stuff.
But it doesn't end there. They are going to commission designers to create a couple of crazy wallpapers from my illustrations, to feature on the gallery walls. I can also devise children's activity sheets for visitors, and they even have a man who will make themed props to create a roll-playing resource that kids can use. How brilliant is that!?
I can't quite believe it. I might burst if I have to wait until next summer!
