Just over 2 weeks ago Jess Perry asked if I could help with/do, some posters for Aylsham High School corridor, "no money in it" she said, "I could give you a bottle of wine and a bit of my work."
Jess gave me the titles and her idea of how they could be styled and I set to work.
It is passing strange that often the first half of any job is usually quite fast followed by a slower second half, which can really extend itself and it did.
When I found myself thinking - God this is taking ages, I would think of what I was getting - a piece of Jess's work - and I would be back to work.
I love her work. It is witty and engaging for both adults and children, it reflects on society and the environment, it is also really good stuff!
Last weekend Jess called over with 2 bottles of home brewed beer and 4 pieces of her work,
Okay I said we will have to choose which we would like - Jess said "no, I'd like you to have them all." Totally overwhelmed by her generosity and I will be forever grateful because every time I pass Marigold Chickens and see the Heron - I grin widely. I also have 2 prints and will post pics of those once I have had them framed.
You can see more of her amazing work on her website http://www.jessicaperry.co.uk/
I live and work in North Norfolk where the skies are wide and the weather can be wild.
