advice to sink in slowly is an ongoing series of posters designed by graduates for the purpose of passing on advice and inspiration to first year students.

It’s not hard to make art. It’s hard to put art out into the world. It’s harder even when you can’t see for yourself where your art may be welcomed, let alone celebrated.

Help me find the websites, galleries, theatres, magazines, publishers, agents, dealers, editors, fans, shops, the markets that will love me and what I make. I put up my favourite works here, but what are yours? What do I need to do to make the world see me?
