Oh dear, all quiet here again! Time has been going insanely fast, and I'm on the downhill slope now towards the imminent end of uni. Which means more time for blog posts soon, honest.
A lot has been happening - there's only 3 weeks left of my Final Major Project (children's book), and I'm actually almost finished with it now thanks to the extremely pressing Macmillan Prize deadline that I managed [by a whisker] to finish in time despite a rather tenacious cold.
I keep promising work in progress/sneak peeks of the project and haven't got around to it yet, so instead here's a couple of exciting things that have happened over the last couple of weeks -
Firstly, I won a little competition on Twitter with Creative Review magazine to get an entry into their Illustration annual - really exciting! I don't have high hopes to win a place in the annual, but it's a great opportunity, and I wouldn't have been able to afford to enter this year otherwise so it's a fantastic prize. Thank you, Creative Review!
The second thing is receiving my first order of business cards/postcards/minicards/greetings cards/stickers and general thrilling self-promotional goodness from Moo! I've been wanting to make an order with them for years, and I'm glad I've finally done so - really impressed by their service and the lovely packaging on everything! I suddenly have the slightly nerdy urge to collect lots of other people's business cards to put in the little 'Theirs' sections of my business card boxes.
This also means that hopefully it will now only be a couple of weeks until my etsy shop is fully stocked with prints, baby clothes and other goodies, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
Here's a little sneak peek of the Moo delivery...
