Edinburgh Mapped

On Thursday evening I popped over to Edinburgh for the opening of Edinburgh Mapped at Broughton Deli. This was a group show with over 25 artists, with every piece responding to a Edinburgh location. There is a lovely lil’ map that accompanies the show. This includes all the artists and their chosen Edinburgh locations. Other work on show was brill! Including pieces by the lovely Robbie Porter and Louise Smurthwait.
The show is on until the 28th of August, so pop in by if you are in town. While you are there you should sample some really good food from the deli, purchase a card (maybe mine!)  and then pop over to Concrete Wardrobe andCuriouser & Curiouser , both great art and designs shops on Broughton street.
It was lovely to finally meet Nicky Brooks, the curator of the show. I was very pleased to be asked to have my own solo show at Broughton Deli next year, also to get some work into the amazing wee Red Door Gallery .
So a lovely evening was had, creating opportunities, catching up with other illustrator pals  and eating some lovely lovely grub from the deli. Then of course we had to sample a little ‘Jekyll and Hide’ cocktail before heading back home.
‘Rapper’s Delight’ – my piece for the exhibition.
I grabbed a quick snap before I dropped the piece off for hanging. It is sitting on my great Grannies leather suitcase – which although very heavy – is perfect for all my stalls.
