The cheque has cleared, I ended up with £320. It's still much better than giving it away like I had planned but as it started out as $950 it's quite a drop. I'm just happy it all belongs in a permanent collection now and of course being able to pay some bills is a bonus.

Can't believe it can take up to ten weeks to process the cheque, never mind I'll just have to wait longer than I thought. No idea what they're going to charge me for changing it into pounds though.

yay, received the cheque today along with a lovely letter. I'm absolutely skint so it'll come in very handy.

I recieved an email yesterday from Yuko to ask if I would take $600 instead of $712.50 for my work to go to the Yuko Nii Foundations permanent collection. I still can't believe it, I was going to donate the work anyway, so I'm really chuffed. She wrote a lovely message about how much she loved my work and what it meant to her. It was really touched and I'm so delighted! https://sites.google.com/site/yukoniifoundation/

I emailed back in response to donating my work, but haven't heard anything. The work came down a while ago so I think my work must have been excepted into the collection.

Yuko has emailed the artists of the 'Special choice' book art show asking if anyone would like to donate their work to the Yuko Nii foundation https://sites.google.com/site/yukoniifoundation/home
So I have decided that I will donate my work to the foundation collection as it would be nice to have work in a permanent collection, plus I can't really afford to ship it home, it would cost £50 plus $25 that they would take as a handling change and it will look good on my c.v.

The curator of the book art show has been in touch to ask if the artists would allow their work to remain in the gallery until early next year as it's been so well recieved. Only the "Special Choice" show part will remain though, which she will add to with other artists work and will be on until 2nd Jan 2011.
