Here some photos from last week's performance of Transplanted at the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.
It was a really beautiful concert! You can see Sonia and Alice from Highheels and Horsehair performing, as well as some photos of some of the plants the music was inspired by and the poster I had illustrated for them in August. I even managed to wear a matching dress to my illustration!

Looking back to the group exhibition EH from April this year, some artists from our collective will soon be exhibiting their work at the international exhibition Le Immagini della Fantasia in Sarmede, Italy. This year's exhibition is dedicated to Scotland and as part of this collaboration I had the opportunity to illustrate one piece for a Scottish folk tale. I will be able to post more images soon!
In August I also worked with artists Hadi Mehrpouya and Chris Barker on an installation piece about therecent crisis in Palestine. I created a large drawing, illustrating Palestinian citizens and an olive tree, an important symbol in Palestinian culture. The drawing became part of a piece, which when interacted with printed out personal stories of the people living in Gaze, the Westbank and Jerusalem. The image above shows one part of the drawing. You can view a short video of the installation piece here.

In July I created these illustrations for the new programme of the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. The artwork was for a variety of workshops for children and their families. The themes of all the different workshops were a lot of fun to illustrate!

Cyanotype course at Edinburgh Printmakers. What a wonderful technique! Thanks to decent weather we were also able to expose some of our images in the Scottish sun, despite some clouds here and there this worked out rather well. Can't wait to do more!

Capsule and the Royal Shakespeare Company. We were asked to illustrate three characters each, which would then be used for these life-size installations, set up at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. The production is called Arden of Faversham by Polly Findlay and is part of the theatre's current Roaring Girls season. Visitors can "play" with these installations, which work similarly to the drawing game consequences, where intersections of different characters create a new character.
