Here is a photo of my recent submission for an exhibition of art in matchboxes, for a Christmas open house over two weekends (26-27th November and 3-4 December), in Brighton. It's an interesting challenge and good to get thinking in 3 dimensions, as well exploring the nature of being able (or not!)to contain something in so small a space. I chose to make the "first in a series" with the title "Pocket Saudade" - the idea being that if you were missing something, in this case, The Sea, you might be able to open a small box and see the waves turning there. The other fictional boxes available would be The Sun and The Mountains. Enter The Clutter Open House Show http://www.facebook.com/pages/Polish-Pin/160467470635415

This is a straightforward illustration based on the latest collection, S/S 2012, from Eyglo: originally drawn for a "journalist" who didn't seem to understand the whole time/worklife balance/manners equation which comes with collaboration. sigh. Nevermind, it was a fun piece to do and I really like Eylgo's works http://eyglocollection.com/
