Kim Smith

I came across the work of Kim Smith lookin for blogs on the internet, her work is quite whimsical and she has created a good many illustrations for childrens books, these two being my favourite. Some of her work looks almost 3d as if it has been cut out and layered like a theatre set production. I think the characters and some of the shapes of which she captures elements such as the trees in the piece above are beautiful, simple, yet effective!

Meet with Andrew Pavitt and Big Orange Studios

finally, arranged the visit with Andrew Pavitt, after a few ping-pong phone calls, its is done!

hello again!

I just missed your call! The wednesday is more suitable for myself and other colleagues as they have arranged further meetings on the thursday morning. Possibly morning or dinner time on Wednesday 4th of March if that would be ok? If you could mail me back a time at which is suitable for yourself. Otherwise if the thursday is more suitable for you we can make further arrangements.

Couple of questions,

Will we be meeting at your studio?

and, is the address,

Big Orange Studios 150 Curtain Road, 2nd Floor back buildings London Greater London

Thankyou ever so much, I look forward to hearing from you!



Hi Sarah

Yes the address is spot on and Wednesday is good also.
Late morning say 11.30 would be great.

If you can come to the studio and either buzz the door downstairs or call me on the mobile and I can
come down and let you in.

Look forward to seeing you.



meet with Cheryl Taylor - schedualed!

Hello sarah,

Sorry to have taken so long to reply but I've been a little under the weather of late.

Thanks for the comments you're very kind.

I could probably meet you on tuesday evening for a chat if you fancy? I work full time as a designer so the days are out I'm afraid. It would be good to chat with you hopefully see gary and ian too.

Bring your folio and I'll look at some of your work. The pdfs you sent look great by the way!.

I hope you're and I look forward to seeing you next week.

It is so great hearing from you, I hope you feel better soon! I am absolutely thrilled to be able to meet you. The Tuesday evening would be fantastic!

I shall mention to Ian and Gary about seeing you, If it's ok, may I bring along a friend too, to have a chat?

Where abouts would you like to meet and what time?

We have a meeting with Nick Defty from YCN at 3pm on Rivington Street on the Tuesday but I can arrange around it, just let me know. :)

Maybe I could take your number and give you a ring when I'm in London to arrange further details?

Again, I hope you feel better soon.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Sarah x
