So, after fighting with my printer, delivery times, my sanity and the need to sleep I’ve realized/decided that I will be ready to go on the market this weekend after all!

Camden Lock Market - West Yard

Camden Lock Market – West Yard

That’s Camden Market (probably in the West Yard) where, on Saturday, I’ll be sitting behind a stall, talking to my guitar, to passers by, and hopefully some friends, drinking tea and maybe noting some interest in my artwork from the madding Christmas crowd. It is due to be sunny which, at highs of 5 degrees, is a blessing!

Given some of the problems stated above, most of my cards (from the last post) will actually be ready for next weekend so I’m doing some handmade ones for this week (and shall be on the stall if my hands don’t freeze). Most of the other artwork will be prints, paints, drawings and originals in A4 (as I haven’t a way to transport the rest) and a couple of paintings and bits and bobs. See below!

Do come by if you’d like to say hi. I’ve no idea how the day will go and would really like to see some friendly features floating my way.

Well, here goes.

Next Saturday (December 9th) if all goes to plan I will be running my own market stall in Camden Lock (West Yard probably) for the first time. I’ll be selling my artwork in the form of cards, prints and originals (and probably singing to myself with or without my guitar).

Well, to start, here are some of the cards I am making. I’m deciding on numbers just now so let me know which ones you like by comment or email and I will make lots of them! Having never taken my work far outside the circle of family and friends I haven’t much of a clue how my work will fall. They don’t have particular themes (i.e. Christmas) they are designs and illustrations some new and some taken from other parts my work and sketchbooks. It’s interesting for me to return to the work I’ve been making and see the themes, birds and leaves keep coming up, and though there’s only one with fish in here it seems there was a time there were a lot of fish floating around in my work. So here they are, perhaps an oddball set of cards, given the lady with the fish, the pop-up puppet theatre and the pregnant gathering but hopefully they will live well, leave the stall and travel on.

The colours come up so bright on the computer, the cards will emerge looking more calm I do believe, but here is the gist.

If you’d like to come visit me next weekend that would be lovely, tea and a chat will probably make the day less chilly.

very best from the start of a new adventure!
