This is my first foray into actually buying original artwork – it’s by my friend Luci Metcalfe, and it was a total bargain! Luci is currently running a drawathon, where she produces a drawing each day for 26 days, and each one costs £26. Although she also did a few caricatures, which were a bit quicker and a bit cheaper. I loved this picture of Kylie when I saw it on her website, so I snapped it up.
But this isn’t just about me and Kylie. Luci and couple of other former-colleagues are setting up an exciting new project working with Christian graduates working in the arts, which begins in August. Their aim is to mentor these graduates and to help them to live and speak for Jesus as they work in the arts, connecting their faith with their work. It sounds brilliant, and a great development of the work uccf:thechristianunions have been doing with artists for years. So I was delighted to be able to support them a tiny bit, and to get some art out of it too!
