I think perhaps we may pronounce the Ink & Drink event at the William Morris Gallery last evening a success. I was a little overwhelmed by how many visitors turned up, especially as I had envisioned about five or six people, together with a tumbleweed and several crickets. As it is, the free copies of Pictura which were given to the first one hundred arrivals had all gone before 8pm.
It was wonderful to see so many people absorbed in simply colouring in and finding the activity exactly as rewarding and therapeutic and we had hoped. A good number of visitors also responded very kindly to my original artworks and books which I had brought along, and said how well they had enjoyed the evening, which I was of course very touched by. Thank you so much to all who attended, and to Templar, The Big Draw, and the William Morris Gallery.
