I hope you’re having a pleasant weekend. I recently returned from a month trip to Finland! I was invited there to take part in a comic and illustration residency called “Comic Blast” hosted by Arteles. I had an incredible time, and it impacted me in a very positive way. I really appreciated having the luxury of spending a month on a creative project without any life commitments distracting me.
It made me realise how much joy I feel when producing meaningful work, and that I need to focus on my creative side more. I spent the month working on a short comic about my Mum’s childhood, where she grew up in a poor but close-knit community in South London. You can get a glimpse of what I got up to on my Instagram. (@amiluu_scribble) I’m trying to fit in this personal project amongst my other commitments, but I hope to have it completed within a year’s time.
In other news, Lauri Fortino at Frog on a Blog recently gave a positive review for Microbes! You can find it here: https://frogonablog.net/2018/05/05/my-view-book-review-microbes-by-amy-gallagher/
Thanks Lauri Fortino!
Until next time,
