Nearly there...

My holiday starts tomorrow, yippeee!
I've had a very very busy week, doing as much as I can for various projects before setting off for Spain.

In amidst all this chaos, I was invited by Olesya Shchukina to submit an illustration for the 2nd issue of the Russian/German magazine Ohrannik spravok ne daet. It sounded really interesting, so despite my ever-growing and worryingly BIG list of things to do, I decided to take part. 

The project involves 30 illustrators taking 1 square of the EuroVelo map (a bicycle map connecting various cities in Europe), and interpreting and illustrating it in their own way. The magazine will piece together all these pieces, forming a big poster of the whole map in B/W. It will also appear in colour as a big map made of 20 x 20 cm printed canvases during an exhibition dedicated to presentation of the 2nd issue. The presentation will take part on 24th september 2010 in Nest gallery above Nest cafe in Kreuzberg district, Berlin.

My square was a whole square of sea, just to the east of Iceland. Simple enough, except I only had a little over 24 hours to start and complete it! Slightly sleep deprived and delirious, but I'm so happy I managed to do it!!! 

At long last i can finally start thinking of my holiday...bliss!
See you in 10 days :)
