I've finally got around to opening my online shop. Colour prints, etchings, collagraphs and paintings all for sale at the click of a button. Oh the wonders of the internet!
I've always dreamt of opening a gallery in my home town of Manchester selling my work and other illustrators, bringing illustration to the public. Night time events with the hustle and bustle from the city, people enjoying art to the tinkle of a jazzy tune playing in the background and nibbling fancy cakes washed down with a fizzy wine. However, here in the UK, business rates are through the roof and this government doesn't seem to help the creative industries and councils seem to prefer empty shops waiting for a big brand or food outlet to move in.
So my dream will remain a dream and thank goodness for the internet!
Perhaps when you have a gander around my online shop put on some jazzy music, pop open a fizzy and enjoy a slice of cake. Happy shopping!
