The Collector’s Edition

October 29, 2012

A few months back a young lady by the name of Amber mailed to ask me if I would be keen to be a part of her university project. She was designing a zine that was all about people and their collections. She came around to my house to interview me and take pictures of my ceramic animal collection so that she could illustrate them at a later stage.

I met her, we chatted, I smiled for some photographs and then a few days ago she sent me the finished product and I love it. It’s such a cool little piece and I think she has done a pretty damn good job at designing it.

Thanks Amber for thinking of me and for drawing me and my ceramics so beautifully. Amber is also going to send me a hardcopy, which I’m going to keep till I’m old and buried under my inevitable future collection of 6378 ceramic animals. Sorry Shanie.

Here are a few pages from the zine, I have also included a few of the other people she illustrated.
