Stall At Uni

Two of Schweet's illustrators (Katie and Sarah) did a crafty stall at Bournemouth Arts Uni (where we all currently study). It went rather well and it was nice to chat to students on other courses. We don't get out of the illustrator hub much really!

D'aww! Look how happy she is with an owl badge! 
You can purchase Sarah's sketchbooks from her Etsy shop

Boscombe Tea Party

Schweet collective headed down to Boscombe for the chance to sell our work down on the pier. Sadly the weather wasn't as sunny, or wind free as we would have liked, but it was a good day all the same. We had quite a variety of work on the stall and it was well received by those who dared to venture out onto the pier. (The weather wasn't really as dramatic as I make it seem).

Sarah McQuilkin's work

I've been a busy bee, making sketchbooks. They're all lovingly hand-made, from real vintage effect leather, with suede inner, and a small variety of different backing papers.
They come in A5, A6 and A7? (half A6)
The paper is of a good quality, able to withstand small amounts of water/wet materials.

There are more to come, some will be in beautifully embossed leather i have just ordered. 

I also have some glass framed images to sell, all my own illustrations, more to come.
I'll also have these and more, on blank greetings cards, and postcards.
(colours vary slightly when printed)
