Museomix UK 2014

Over the course of this weekend, I’m acting as artist-in-residence for the UK iteration of Museomix. I’m going to send you to the sites rather than write anything up here right now as it’s coming up on midnight and I’ll be doing this all again the morning, but I wanted to make a start on posting the sketch journal I’m working on recording it! Much more to come, this batch barely gets us past setup into the first day – will make it available in full in one form or another after the event!

You can follow along on twitter under #MMUK14 !

Sketch – goodbye trees

TreeCutSketch001s

Quick sketch for today! There’s a new development which they’ve just started clearing the site for near where I live. It looks like it’ll be a good development, I’m totally not knocking it. But walking into town today meant having to watch the beautiful avenue of trees the main pedestrian route into town went through be chopped down and woodchipped on the spot. They gave me a lot of joy over the years, especially when their leaves glowed with spring light.

Giveaway time, yay!

It’s giveaway time! I’m giving away 3 custom sketches – on a topic of your choice (within reason), mailed to your door, or, if you have a favourite piece of art in my gallery or like one of my comics, you can request the original lineart or an original page! I can’t promise it’ll be something I’m willing to part with, but chances are good, so ask away!

Additionally, I will mail envelopes off to 5 extra people with a few goodies in – some miniprints, stickers or badges! (Sketch winners will get these too)

Three ways to enter (or you can do more than one for an extra entry!):

Twitter: Follow @sallythompson on twitter and tweet this post (or RT one of my tweets about it). Be sure to mention @sallythompson in the tweet so I spot it!

Blog: Comment here with a link to a piece of art (in the gallery, on the blog, etc) which you’d like to see as a print or merchandise (you can follow the blog by RSS too if you’re feeling nice! 🙂

I’ll leave this up for a week, and pick winners at random on Sun 19th Feb!

Simples! And while we’re on the shameless self-promotion bandwagon, don’t forget you can buy copies of From and Candy Bag, a well as other goodies, in my Etsy shop (will be adding more listings in the next few days), or if you don’t have Etsy just drop me a line via the contact page 🙂

Thanks guys! You rock!

Japan fundraising festival

Another post that is not a con report! *blush*

Went to a local Japanese festival put on to fundraise for tsunami relief, which I donated some of the paper crane art prints to. Had a really lovely time with husband – had green tea and a cupcake, got beautiful crane earrings from husband-and-wife-team (very cool!)Satoko’s Origami Jewellery, potted and brought home some rocket seeds to put on the windowsill and hope they grow, and did some sketching! I just got some watercolours (<3), so experimented a bit on a couple of the sketches when I got home.
