Looking for something to do, I bought these fabulous blocks off of etsy. I was going to do a standard village but then I thought i’d have a go at doing some high fashion Paris stores. I’m happy with how they’ve turned out but not entirely. I worry that maybe they’re a little too twee. But anyway, its up to you what you make of them. They are available on my Etsy shop.

These installation boxes are some of the first full pieces of work I ever did. They were for my Foundation Diploma Graduation Show. I was looking into climate control at the time and everything surrounding it. The use of paper was a deliberate choice in reflecting how we use it everyday but it too, is a form of polluting due to the cutting down of trees obviously. The trees’s in the last box have little smart cars as leaves!

New Item In My Shop

DSCN1316  New item in my Etsy shop. This bugsy Moustache Birthday card that I made with a mono print. Ive then hand cut around the shape of the moustache, teeth and ears. Please head over and have a look.

Also, there’s a whimsical new item over on the WelshRare-BitsCo. Head over and check out Owen Tudor, the new addition!

The Print Exchange 2013

These mono prints are my entry into The Print Exchange 2013. The theme open for interpretation is ‘The Drive Home’. I chose to convey tiredness when driving through the night and how your mind conjures up the most surreal ideas.

The whole point of the exchange is to create a series of 12 prints, 10 will go to another unknown print artist who has entered the exchange. One will be archived at the Brooklyn Art Library and another will be entered for an exhibition taking place in New York. Its put together by the amazing people of TheSketchbookproject.com and just seemed like another fantastic opportunity to get my work out there and noticed. Im really looking forward to seeing which prints I receive.

Being a new artist I really love these projects, their not paid work however it is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and for them to see your work. Ive had quite a few people recently complain about the fact this isn’t paid and why aren’t I concentrating and getting work that does pay. The simple answer is that I really enjoy taking part in these projects and the first bit of advice given to us by our lecturers in art school was that sometimes doing work for free in the beginning of your career can end up being far more rewarding. Creatively and monetarily.

MOOOOOOO!

What can I say, my parents went out for the day and came back with this! It was originally a disgusting brown colour but I washed it, sand papered it down and put several coats of primer on it ready for me to draw onto. This is how its coming along so far. I love it when people bring back odd little trinkets. I believe this is from a car boot sale where my dad tried to haggle the price down from £3! What a tight wad!
