I have been given a fantastic opportunity to show my work in Born – a family/ baby shop where I live in Stoke Newington. This is the first time that my family portraits get an airing outside of the digital world, and I am absolutely beside myself about it! It’s also giving me the boost I needed to try and properly kickstart this family illustration work – I want to do more!
My signature drawing is this portrait of our family, which I made almost two years ago as a way to celebrate my sweet ones. This is also what started a whole new venture for me, as I started getting a number of commissions from friends, friends or friends and beyond. My family portraits have now travelled far and wide, to Australia, Canada and more.
I am also having a bit of a blog overhaul, dear friends – I started this whole thing as a way to keep all my illustrations in one place – then allowed myself to be distracted by all the other stuff I love to do – from cakes and crafts and photographs. All is not lost and I’m moving all my other blogging to karuskiblog.wordpress.com while karuski.co.uk will be my official illustration home. So if you’re here for cakes, you may want to follow the other blog instead… thank you for bearing with me as I find my blogging feet.
