I am so honoured and blown away to be featured in a wonderful article on Urban Sketchers in this month’s Watercolor Artist(USA) – written by Cathy Johnson. My copy of the magazine finally arrived today.
It is always very exciting to see your work in print but I am totally blown away by seeing it so large. And it is a funny feeling that notes that I originally wrote to myself and now shared with the world. Yeah, I know I do that online but somehow it is more real when in print – it feels like my actual page has been shared with many.
Particularly the Afternoon in Lisbon sketch started when I was having lunch with Omar Jaramillo – has lots of conflicting emotions on the one page (so good, very happy, so hard, can’t see, still have HA(=headache), a bit too ratty today) and the “YES!” records the excitement of a moment when I was sketching my view and suddenly realised 1. the person I was sketching was a sketcher 2. that that person was Eduardo Bajzek.
Also featured is the work of wonderful artists (and great friends) Gabi Campanario, Laura Frankstone, Marc Holmes, Nina Johannson, Tia Boon Sim, Marcia Milner-Brage…and Kate of course! what amazing company hey?
This month is magazine month for me … I have work in two other magazines. A single page in DestinAsia (an Asian travel magazine) and I have written a double page spread article on Sketching FOOD for UK Artist & Illustrators. I am impatiently waiting for my copy of those magazines to arrive!
