Summertime is the time for fun in the sun – right? It’s also the time for some great art activity and the artists of This ‘Me’ of Mine have been very active. They’ve also been busy composing their thoughts in several new blogs, see the list below. Here are the highlights of some of their recent and upcoming activity:
Royal Academy Summer Show

Hayley has been painting portraits at several art fairs this summer. Here is a list of some of the fairs she’s attended:
The project is also starting to get some press attention. Anthony’s interview was mentioned in The Arts and Crafts Gazette in June. In July Perrick Senelaer editor of Art Pie invited me to be a contributor and write about This ‘Me’ of Mine. It gives me a unique opportunity to write about the project from a different perspective and I hope will offer further insights into issues surrounding This ‘Me’ of Mine. I have an article coming up for Art Pie on my interview with Shireen Qureshi. Our interview will be posted here in the next few days, so watch for that. And last week, @an_artnews mentioned me in a tweet with some other very exciting groups and individuals making a mark on the UK arts scene, I was very honoured. As a result the project has gained some new followers.
