Feature on Creative Boom :)

The Online Magazine and community of Creative boom, have recently featured my artwork under thier 'Inspiration' section under Illustration.

you can find my work, and the site here http://creativeboom.co.uk/inspiration/sarah-galley/

 


The site is a brilliant resource for creatives, and has job features, interviews and exhibtion updates.



Its great news! and is another thing keeping me motivated and wanting to produce more work.

The only thing thats frustrating me is its all old work, and I'm itching so much to get some new designs and Illustrations done. But after the communte through London each day, I'm exhausted. I shouldnt make excuses though, Ive been doodling on my dinner hour, so I'm hoping new and fresh work will be on its way.

I definately think that the time I'm spending in London is fuelling my desire to want to push forward even more with my Illustrations. Its helping me to focus on the areas I want to improve and making me evauate where I want to go with my artwork, which is good.

London Internship news!

After a crazy september getting a job and meeting lots of lovely new people, I have more exciting news to blog about.

Im a really bad blogger, and dont keep this updated at all.

The first exciting news is that I found a lovely place that Giclee prints my artwork, Its called Decormount and they are really focused and couldnt be more helpful. you can find them here http://www.decormount.com/.

They also mount it for me, and have it wrapped and sealed- ready to sell. I currently have two local shops selling limited edition prints of my work. Which is good news.

The more exciting news, is that i'm currently staying in London after being accepted by The Bright group International as part of thier Internship scheme.

The Bright Group is split into four divisons,  Bright Art Licensing,  Bright Art buying, Bright Literary Agency and the Bright Agency.

They look after Artists and Illustrators and help push and promote thier artwork on a global scale.

Its been a real whirlwind week, moving down, traveling and meeting the whole team. But everyone is welcoming and friendly and its really insightful to be there. I'm learning alot each day that I'm there. Hopefully the knowlege will help me push forward, and really motivate me to create more Illustrations that are current and commerical.

Ive been designing portfolio sheets, as well as helping design a charity christmas card. Ive also been helping the Designer of the 2013 publishing calendar. Its a brilliant atmosphere, where everyone is really focused and dedicated to thier artists.

I'm going to try and keep this blog more updated with all the news and everything I'm learning at Bright.
