John Howe by Philippe Krauer, 2002

Personal exhibitions…

Any gallery show means going out on a limb, sometimes with confidence, sometimes with trepidation.
For an illustrator, it is a way of bypassing the otherwise mandatory transition through publishing, restoring a geographical sense to the work, adding motivation. (Which means basically, that you have to get out of the house and go see it…) All in all, it puts people back in the picture, and no longer the largely abstract public that one devines behind sales figures and royalty statements.
It's the pleasure of chance encounters, the satisfaction of actually seeing one's own work in a frame on a wall. It's a privileged moment.
