When I started posting my Basque Diary illustrations to Instagram, my friend, Edu, said they would make great t-shirts. I agreed, but didn’t have the time to make t-shirts (I’d done so before for my “Frome With a View” exhibition and there is a lot of running around to be done).
So I suggested HE make them. He could keep any profit (and t-shirts are not the road to riches. A bit like cartooning.) as they would be a good way to promote my book. He seized the idea and “Billie & Co.” was born. Edu loves our dog, so named his new venture after him.
We will be at the marina in Hondarribia on Sunday to sell them and the books. I just hope that the weather (drizzle) isn’t as forecast.
