The Pop-Up Shop is Back

PopUP WM Website
After trundling around in the heavy rain with more art prints to take to the Pop Up Shop, we finally found it. I'm not that familiar with Wolverhampton town centre but the shop is at the back entrance to the Mander Centre, next to Forbidden Planet on Victoria Street. It was certainly a surprise when we found it, so much bigger than the last one and looks amazing. A brand new website as well. I really hope this one works out as the guys at the Shop have worked so hard and are so friendly and enthusiastic. Please drop in and offer some support for all the local artists.

Commissioning Illustrators

Some of the Artwork for the Book Cover
It's really lovely when some of your clients keep in touch and send you little snippets of information. I did a book cover for Janine Amos and she has written a blog post on working with illustrators. There's also a very useful link (from the AOI) for authors who are considering using an Illustrator.
