I will post more about the amazing business trip to England soon, but for now, you can see some of the photos from The Illustrating Gallery in Stroud here.

I have to thank a lot of people who had helped me during this trip. Super special big thank yous go to: Oliver Jolf of The Illustration Gallery for having me in the show and arranging my trip, Stephen Braund of University College Falmouth Illustration Authorial Practice MA for inviting me to lecture and for wonderful Cornish Cream Tea, Adrian Johnson for driving this stranger out to Stroud, Olivier Kugler and Julie for letting me stay and taking me around, and my old friend Rika F. for coming to see me all the way from Munich!
