Glastonbury Emerging Talent

About 2 weeks ago, I suddenly became very excited about Glastonbury 2014. I found myself reminiscing about last year, when I went to the festival for the very first time, and painted bins for a ticket (blog post here). It had to be one of the best experiences I'd had, meeting so many wonderful people, having the chance to have the fields of Glastonbury as my back garden for 3 weeks, and playing (admittedly a minor) part in the making of the festival.Which was of course, incredible fun.

And then, a few days later Amelia put a call out for illustrators for her shortlist of Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Contest for Amelia's Magazine. I just had to give it a go! 
I illustrated for Alev Lenz, and I loved being introduced to her music, which is incidentally wonderful to draw to. Amelia's shortlisted artists can be seen at her blog post here. Also showcased is George Boomsma and Arthur Rigby & The Baskervylles.

Now more than ever, I am extremely excited for June to arrive, as I head off to paint bins once more!  I really hope I get to see Alev perfom at Glastonbury, but fingers crossed to all involved in the Emerging Talent Contest.
