It's almost time for me to move into my first unfurnished home, and so what I rather need is furniture!
I decided to make it a challenge, and a project.
I am offering illustrations in exchange - if you give me something from my list, I shall replay by drawing/painting your favourite animal, size and detail and such depending on the value of the furniture.
For a nice two seater sofa, for example, I'd give you for example a watercolour portrait of your pet dogs playing chess if you wish. For a chair I'd give a doodle of a dinosaur (or whatever you fancy). Original artwork for you to keep, that is.
If you have something to offer, get in contact and send me a picture, and if it suits the house and can somehow be transported there, you can make your request. Hepp!
I already got a nice dinner table...
- a bedside table (or two)
- a standing lamp
- a sofa (clean and comfortable)
- a coffee table
- some bookshelves
- some plain shelves to store stuff in the garage
- a chest of drawers
- four chairs
- a housemate
The last item would be especially awesome. I'll advertise on Gumtree etc. very soon, but if you know someone nice who'd like to live with a children's book writer/illustrator in South London (zone 2), get in touch now... good sized double room available from 1st of September. Have your own bathroom if you like. Professionals and non-smokers only. No pets.
Right, I am looking forward to whatever happens with this! Contact details here.
