As I mentioned in the last post, I have been lucky enough to be involved in illustrating a publication about Porthmeor Studios, St Ives. University of Exter graduates, Emma Easy and Paul Tucker have created  ‘Permanence’. The booklet celebrates the history and heritage of the studios and their link between the fishing and art industry in St Ives through a combination of interviews, articles and poetry. It also explores the nature of the rennovation that has taken place to sustain the building over the last few years.

Working with Emma, Paul and graphic designer Dan Bloomfield has been a great way of discovering more about St Ives and Porthmeor and their rich artistic heritage.
