How have you been this month? I’ve been away for an event. I was for­tu­nate enough to be in­vited to Tro­jan Horse Was A Uni­corn in Malta last month. It was an in­vig­o­rat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

One of the things that I loved the most about this gath­er­ing was see­ing how the at­ten­dees fed off each other’s cre­ativ­ity and en­ergy. Ev­ery sin­gle per­son I spoke to at Tro­jan Horse added some­thing to the ex­pe­ri­ence: every­one was en­gaged with art and its cre­ation in some way or other.

Hang­ing out with like-minded peo­ple is good for the soul. Do you ever get to meet up with fel­low artists? I ap­pre­ci­ate that not all of you can get to a con­ven­tion or event in an­other coun­try, but maybe you could find lo­cal sketch meets in cafés and bars, or art gallery tours…?

While I’ve got you, have you con­sid­ered buy­ing a loved one a mag­a­zine sub­scrip­tion for Christ­mas – or even adding it to your own Christ­mas list? It’s an in­spir­ing gift that will de­liver 13 is­sues of art for the whole of 2019. There are print and dig­i­tal edi­tion op­tions and lots of sav­ings to be made if you sign up ei­ther via the links on page 4 (UK sub­scribers) or page 67 (over­seas). Go see!
