What an incredible year this year has been for me. It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride, terrifying and exhilarating and exhausting and beautiful. My #bestnine2019 goes a little way in showing the amazingness of this year... I first completed the MA at Cambridge school of art and we had the incredible show at candid arts in Islington, then my books scurried away with Pam Smy and her team to Bologna.... oolliterary did an article about my book ‘Home’ in Korea and from that I got a publishing deal in South Korea and at the same time I met the lovely evamolldealba at vegueta_ediciones who did an amazing job in the design and publishing of both ‘Home’ and ‘pass it on’ as ‘Hogar’ and ‘Passalo’ inspanish and Catalan. I’ve been overwhelmed by the support and attention Hogar has received in Spain and hopefully my little story is helping the sea in a small way. Meanwhile, Elio entered my life and shattered it completely into a thousand wonderful pieces. I never knew my world could be so filled with wonder and love. He has now been fully immersed into our new world and even joined me on stage angliaruskin to graduate with me and travelled across the ocean to visit my sisters lizziefurze and amyfurze in NYC. (We just need to fine tune drawing together.... but I have some ideas up my sleeve!) I’ve met some incredible new friends through being a mum and I hope that these friendships will last a lifetime. I can’t wait to see how our little terrors are going to change the world. ❤️ Here’s to another incredible year full of new adventures both scary and exhilarating. And another new decade where who knows what will happen. Here’s to never giving up and following your dreams because you really don’t know what is going to happen next. And sometimes the most upsetting events can lead to the most magical of moments. Here’s to being me and not being bullied into someone I’m not. Here’s to love and friendship and perfect imperfection. A huge thank you with all my heart to everyone who has been a part of this year. You have each made it wonderful in every way. ❤️❤️❤️ #bestnine #bestyear #2019 #newyear #newmum #illustrator #perfectlyimperfect #happiness #love
