First of all, thank you to everyone who has pledged so far. It means a lot, despite the fact that we will actually have to do some work to get the book done, which is a shame.
In this first update, we thought we'd introduce the illustrator for the project, Emily Medley.
Emily Medley lived in North, East, Central and West London for over ten years before she finally saw the light and headed South in 2000 where she has been ever since. For many years she worked as a fashion stylist helping the rich and famous look dapper in photoshoots for magazines and newspapers. Tiring of the relentless glamour and exciting trips abroad, one day she found a pencil in the bottom of an old handbag and hasn't looked back. Emily now draws for money and as well as accepting illustration commissions produces greetings cards under the brand name Peachy Thrills.
You can see her work and contact her here: emilymedley.co.uk
We're looking forward to long, important illustration meetings with Emily over endless lunches, with our minds set free by the judicious use of wine.
A pledge at the "Couple of Pints" level will include a limited edition print of Emily's art from the book.
