we had a visiting lecturer today at college called emily speed. she makes installations, but also illustrates and writes to make some really lovely art books.
she spoke a little about her work and how she is making it as an artist and how she got where she is now.
she also held an art book making workshop in the afternoon. i'd never made a book before, no matter how little or large, but i found the afternoon really inspiring and am planning to try and include one in one of my projects at college. i've had a few ideas already so hopefully i'll be developing these into something material soon.

she also writes a blog called 'getting paid', a blog about artists and money:
