Hullo Kinfolk! It doesn't seem that long ago that I was writing my last roundup of this project - showing what I had done so far from days 1-49. So it blows my brain that I only have 3 days to go!! 3 DAYS!!
I grew up in Leicestershire after moving here from Nottingham when I was 4 years old. I have always been creative and have loved to draw and doodle since I could hold a pencil. I think I have taken after my Mum who is a graphic designer and a keen creative herself!
Every so often I come across a Kickstarter that I just have to back and be a part of - even more so when it's to help artists achieve a creative goal. Today I spotted a tweet by the lovely Mirelle about a new collection of illustrations that she's currently part of called 'The Dream Cluster: an illustrated anthology'. I've been a fan of her work for a long time so naturally had to check it out!
I grew up in Coventry and I think I always wanted to be an artist. I remember drawing a huge red chicken on my parents’ wall with wax crayon, when I was three, and being really pleased with it. I was in Secondary school when I figured out working as a graphic designer and illustrator would satisfy my creative urges and earn me money.
