oh comely magazine

last month i illustrated an essay called "the place where i am happy" - in which a young woman describes her weakness for the glowing romance of the bar at el quijote beneath the chelsea hotel in new york city - in london-based oh comely magazine. those of you in the UK can pick up issue № 4 now (stockists); i will be eagerly waiting for my copy to arrive with the post!

thank you everyone, especially since i don't normally do editorial work (because i am scared of it) and this was quite new to me.

thank you to sree, especially; i am so flattered that you took the time to read through. that gives me a lot of confidence :)
