Hello, I’m Abi.
I’ve just finished my degree in Illustration at the University of Gloucestershire and am lucky enough to have an internship at Thought Den for a couple of weeks. I have been living in Bristol for about a year working under the name of Pigeon; doing exhibitions, entering competitions, meeting with local art groups, doing commissions for children’s books and local bands and anything else I can find to do with art and illustration.
I am currently working on a series of Christmas cards and other products to take to a gift fair in December and preparing work for upcoming exhibitions. I like to draw animals, especially birds because they can be easily adapted to do lots of things, so my character for Thought Den is a bird playing a game on an iPhone because they love their games and apps.
Things you need to know about me if we are going to be friends:
- I love good coffee, freshly ground, yum
- I have a really sweet tooth and love sweets, cake and chocolate of any kind
- I like little dogs with funny faces
- When I was little I wanted to be a bus driver, an opera singer and a zoo-keeper
- I do not like seafood or fish of ANY form
