As I mentioned in my last blog post I will be painting at Upfest in Bristol this year!!
In addition to this I can now announce I’ll be painting at Birmingham’s City of Colours as well!
Very excited about these events, cannot wait to produce work to such a wide audience!
City of Colours has launched a Kickstarter funding page to raise money to make the festival what it is. Please visit and donate if you can!…
I’ve not posted for ages have I?! Sorry about that. Very busy you see, but here’s a little run down of what’s been happening since Jan (can’t believe it’s April already!!)…
January started very quiet, just had one small branding commission on, but it was a good one. I created an A1 canvas for LTBL Productions, a great independent Film company in Sheffield. I’ll create a proper post for this with the inspiration behind it when I have time, but here’s a photo of the finished piece in the mean time… Since then I have been working on an extremely exciting project which has been taking all my time for close to two months now! I once again set myself quite the challenge to fill a square room, floor and ceiling included, with optical illusions / op art. I thought it would be a good opportunity to use perspective anamorphosis with it too, which is what’s taking the time. It’s painstaking work but should be worth it when it’s completed. Information re. what it’s actually for soon, here’s a couple of sneak peeks though…CAN YOU SEE A THEME OCCURRING?…
Other than this I have three other great commissions lined up to start soon. More info soon.
And the big news is I got into UPFEST! I’ll be painting an 8″ x 10″ wall in front of excess of 30,000 visitors, so no pressure there. Very excited about this though and humbled I’ve been given the opportunity!
So, busy as always, i’ll try to post more often now…
Big big update. 3 new MURAL projects added and a PERSPECTIVE piece.
I do apologise for the lack of postage. I’ve spent all my spare time over the last three months setting up my studio, which needed a massive amount of work doing to it. I’ve got it to a ‘blank canvas’ level, meaning it’s complete, I now just need to cover the walls in lots of colour and get some shelving etc in there. It marks a bit of a corner stone for me I feel, as it will allow me to explore lots of new ideas, and hopefully increase my output somewhat. I’ll get some start-to-finish photos up soon.
I have three projects to put up on here but i’m incredibly busy so in the meantime please follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or (/and) Facebook.
Lots of exciting stuff in the pipeline.
Take a visit to the Yorkshire Tee store if you fancy wearing one of these. More designs to come when I get round to it.
Just posted recently completed latest Perspective Anamorphsis piece at The Film Pool
And if you’ve not already seen the pics from the second part of the Fez commission, check here…
Better late than never so Happy New Year to all! I do hope your year will be ever the prosperous one.
For me, the term ‘start as you mean to go on’ has never been so appropriate, with a January that’s turned out to be very busy…
Just a few days into the year I started my first commission at The Film Pool, it’s taken much longer than I thought due to the fact I was chartering new territory with the perspective anamorphosis technique. I am off to finish it today though, so photos will be up soon.
Out of the blue I got this quick rebranding job for the guys down at Party for the People and CADS. The new club night in sheffield, “The Night Kitchen” needed a logo and overall identity. I came up with this fork like image and came up with a colour scheme. The beauty of this is it will tie in with the mural I did for CADS in the summer. And with the interior of the club space to be decorated, i’m really looking forward to how the project will pan out.
Other than this I have some other branding jobs in the pipeline. And I’ll be releasing my first print run in the next couple of months, and here’s a little sneak peak at the type of paintings I’ll be working on this year (excuse the poor quality photo)…
Stay tuned for more updates!
