Shop Art @ London Graphic Centre

This week some of my stuff was featured in the London Graphic Centre's "Shop Art" Exhibition. I'm also featured on the website here.  These are a few pics of my pieces that are on show.

I also got a double-page spread in the mini catalogue thing! 
(I hhhhhhhhate writing about my work! Also, it's not great that i spelt the epic street artist BLU's name with an 'e' on the end. poor effort.)

There were also a few blank boards put up for people to doodle on. It would've been rude not too....
(the two middle pieces were collaborations with the irritatingly good illustrator Tom Buddle.)

 The work is all going to be up for a few weeks more so if you're in London go check it out. There's some really great stuff by loads of people including.....

This has to be one of the quickest pieces I've ever done! I picked up the frame from one of the vintage market bits just off Brick Lane in East London just before I moved north. I was told it's a genuine art deco piece (might be ...who knows?) which would mean its about 80 years old.... no pressure then.

As the frame looks amazing on its own I though the best thing to do would be to keep the image as simple as possible. Gold on black? Can't go wrong.

(Check out my insanely classy "feature" wallpaper....jealous aren't ya?)

Magazines and a digital pic.....

This time I have a really good excuse for why it's been so long since my last post! I spent the first few weeks of May looking for somewhere to live, then packing and then the pain of actually moving. Last time was easier because all my work was on paper and in sketchbooks. This time round I had to drag about piles of canvases and wooden boards! Enough excuses, at the start of this week i finally managed to unpack all my my art stuff and start working again.

First up is the premier edition of the Story Magazine! Put together by Sophie Allen and Richard Doran this is an awesome new mag that's full of art, music and culture...stuff! And I'm in it!! I got two full page illustrations and also a small editorial portrait. Check out the full online version at their website here.

Next up is an illustration I did over the last few days. Hadn't done any digital stuff in a while so I thought I'd knock something out.

The pic on the left is my rough sketch and the right is the final drawn version (done on bristol board with copic multiliners)

Then i vectorised and coloured it with Adobe Illustrator.

And finally i moved it into Photoshop to tweak the colours and add various textures.
Didn't come out too badly!

Hopefully another update soon!
