Back from Bologna
One of the best things about Bologna is meeting up with friends from the MA. But it is getting even more exciting when I see their books on Publisher’s stands. Some of them began as projects on the course two years ago, and some people (Steve Antony) even had giant panda posters…
Elena Arevalo Melville signed her gorgeous “No Frog Prince”, and Becky (Rebecca Palmer) had her beautiful work in the Illustrator’s Exhibition.
Bloomsbury let me come to dinner and meet Jim Kay (who is illustrating Harry Potter with his fantastic paintings). And I bought two books, both illustrated by Joanna Conjeco as I couldn’t leave either behind.
