Over the last couple of years, I’ve developed a knack for the guerrilla art sale. I travel with a box of cards in my trunk and if I find myself in a situation that lends itself to a photo shoot (coffee house? Ferry cafeteria? Departure Lounge? No problem!) or popup shop, I’m in there.
That was the case at a friend’s home in Surrey, in the spring of 2016. It was her daughter’s birthday party, and I knew I’d been seeing her parents and a large number of friends with young kids. I spread my cards out on the table, including the recent prints shown here (Ladies, Monarch Butterflies, Cherry Blossoms, Black Lace, Veggies, Pastel Leaves, Whimsy — I was on fire for a few weeks there!); sure enough, one of the guests ordered 24 items and everyone went home. And very, very full of cake.
