Will be exhibiting in the “Conversation with my Conscience; London Riots” exhibition on the 3rd November. It’ll be curated by an LCC alumni, Abi Wright. I found out that Marcus Aitken, a fellow classmate will be exhibiting too, so exciting times…! I hope you all can make it to the private view…!
My exhibition piece is more autobiographical and it emphasises how in this circumstance, social media was actually more reliable, up to date than news website. It was like LIVE news broadcasting throughout all the days.

I’ve also entered the Observer/ Comica/ Jonathan Cape comic competition, results will be announced this week. My entry explores the current situation of the demolition of the estate blocks, e.g. Heygate, Aylesbury Estate etc. Where the current residents are forced to relocate without the promise to return to the newly built flats that will replace the estates. I’ll upload the comic online soon~!
Through my comic internship, I got to meet the amazing Lyn Weddle who specialises in art education, believing strongly in arts therapy. It was hugely inspirational as I’ll be delivering workshops soon too, her case studies were enlightening. It makes you realise, it’s not about cramming a ton of info in, but rather, what does the participant leave with?

At the moment, I’m preparing for the London MCM expo, as I have an exhibitor’s table! This event will be held in Excel Centre on the 28th – 30th October. I was hoping to have a comic in a perfect bound book to sell in this event. However, I actually found out that publishers prefer non finalised products as there is more room to work with~ Nonetheless, I’ll be selling illustration prints and doing commissions throughout the day.
Soon after, I’ll have to prepare for COMICA Festival, on the 12th November as I’ll have an exhibitor’s table there too…! Again… I wouldn’t have a finished book to sell… but hopefully it’ll be a major learning experience!
