The world has changed so much in recent months. We’re experiencing a disruption to our lives, jobs, day-to-day activities and more. Undeniably, there’s a lot worry about, but I’ve been reassured by remembering that we’re all in this together. I’ve come to realise that the people nearest me and the things I care about most are what I should focus on now. I’m sure you feel the same. Our international art community is a strong and helpful bunch. We’re lucky to have each other and, in our art making, we have a much-needed outlet for times of stress.

The coronavirus crisis is affecting lives around the world. For artists, the closure of events where they’d usually sell their art has led to financial losses and worry and stress. This is where editor Claire Howlett thought she and the ImagineFX team could help, by bringing the artists – along with their art and merchandise – to you.

“I realised if I was going to get work done I needed to start looking for another space…” I started working as a full-time comic artist not long before my oldest daughter was born.

However, after a few years the excitement and chaos of family life was in full swing, and I realised that if I was going to get work done I needed to look for another space outside of the house. Luckily, around this time a spot had opened up in an old factory building just a 10-minute drive away. Built in the late-1700s, it was originally a tannery where they made buggy…
