One week until the launch and no time to be ill…cough cough!

Today was the day the first images went up in venues around the city. Jayne Evans and I had previously ( last thursday) mounted some of the drawings, fighting with clips, velcro, and spray glue, to mount the drawings onto foam board, with perspex glazing and then onto specially made easels.

I took the first drawing ‘Patricia’, to the Futon Shop this morning, and the second ‘Joyce Dunbar’ to The Book Hive. When I got home this evening, I recieved a wonderful email from Joyce which read;

‘Yaaaaagh! I walked into the city today and saw the lovely portrait of the lady in the futon centre.  And her great quote. And then I went to the book hive and saw the shocking picture of Joyce D who pretends to be me.

Seriously Malca, I think this is a great idea and wonderfully executed. It is a bit weird to be suddenly confronted with an image of yourself – but the pictures are so bold and dramatic.

 I think it is a shared learning curve, how you see yourself and how others see you. How do you feel about it? Very apprehensive I expect but the boldness of the enterprise deserves an acknowledgement.’
A lovely response indeed!
Jayne , Tom and James from the Forum were out and about delivering pictures to the Assembly Rooms, Theatre Royal, Norfolk & Norwich Hospital , The Cathedral and St Andrews Hall. I manged to rope in the help of two of my off spring..Martha and Jacob to get a couple more mounted this afternoon, the rest will be finished this week…its wonderful and exciting, and a little nerve racking for me to see the drawings go up and see the project reaching its climax!
