Hmmmmm, badger

ImageImageImageThese were some pieces I sent into Make-Away in Brighton. Their opening a pop-up shop for a month as of the 3rd November. My work wasn’t chosen which is always slightly disheartening but I still really like these and thought they might make quite cool screen prints for a tote bag or something. They were only for one colour so I wasn’t entirely sure how I should go about the design. I really love the badger, I know its somewhat simplistic but I thought it was quite relevant what with everything with the badger cull going on. It applied to the fact that the government are back peddling on it due to the massive amount its going to cost – £4 million to be exact. The other piece is a clearer look at one of the designs I did on one of my dolls. An extension of the Miscellaneous Sideshow. The last one is pretty self-explanatory, I think I’ve pressed how much I love hand drawn lettering. Maybe this wouldn’t appeal to everyone because its not obviously Christmassy, but I adore its Burtonesque style.
