Hello this is exciting yes indeed. Yesterday I was running a few errands down in town in Barcelona, and I popped into the CCCB, as on thursday nights its free entrance oh yes. I always stop in at their museum shop, there are so many great books and interesting goodies that i lust over and empty my pockets for. I was happily browsing the shelves when I came across Sweet Illustration published by Monsa.
I was flipping through the book admiring all the illustrations, some of them by artists I have been following on the grand intrawebs for some time and others that were refreshingly new, when the layout started to look strangely familiar.
A little thought popped into my head…..wasnt this the book that I had been emailed about last year by Monsa…ho hummm, i continued to page through, and then! on page 135 I found ME! I nearly fell over! yay x 9000 seriously.
okok so let me fill you in. last year i was approached by monsa, to be included in a new book they were going to publish on female artists who illustrated cute/ sweet stuff…. I was honoured of course, and happily sent off my work, wondering if anything would actually happen, a couple of weeks later I was sent proofs, and then nothing….
So stumbling across the book store was a surprise, as i didn’t even know that it had been published, let alone distributed… Anyway I happily charged it to my credit card and skipped through the exhibition with a big smile plastered all over my head!
The book is actually really cool, so many talented freaking amazing illustrators in there, i drool with happiness to be included hehe. It would make a wonderful addition to any fan of girly cute art. Go buy it now! :D
