thank you, john huddy xx

A message of love and gratitude for John Huddy and his Illustration Cupboard, one of the first places I gravitated toward when I wasn't even yet an art student. A lot of my early training started there, so many good memories. Do go see the final exhibition! It runs until Christmas Eve, and here are the details on the gallery website.

A few more memories and links to old blog posts:
