How did it go? Well I’m nearly scared to talk about it again. Seems like it was all anyone was talking about there for a week or so.

Over 2,000 people came through the gallery in the space of six hours to visit the Edible Art Gallery and to see me paint (imagine). They ate everything that wasn’t screwed down and some of that too. The gallery had to put a stop and go system on the door and people quequed for up to 45 mins.

I was worried it wouldn’t live up to the high expectation that kind of wait implied but people seemed delighted and asked questions and took pictures and generally had a great time.

There was live music outside and life drawing for all and lots and lots of food.

If you didn’t manage to see any of the press in the papers or on the radio or on Facebook then here’s some photos and a little video that I made from clips taken on my phone.
