Urban Art, Camberwell and pangolins

Happy June! The month of my birth. And finally improving weather. And markets being back on propers. And all sorts of other good stuff.

I've spent the last two Sundays running drawing workshops at jazzy new fun space, Pop Brixton with the lovely Miranda from (uncommon).  It's been super good fun and we've had big draw-ers and little draw-ers and everyone in between.  Hopefully there will be more workshops throughout the summer so keep an eye on the Pop Brixton website as they are the ones with all the news.

Here are some pictures of people drawing fruit and veg and recipes in the greenhouse this weekend. We nearly cooked ourselves!

The collections project continues and I'm currently focussed on typewriters which are dense, lovely things to draw.  Keep an eye on my progress over here on the ole' Instagram.  You can also check out how Abi Heyneke is getting on with her 'Dogs of Warwick Gardens' prints here or here.  We'll be exhibiting together at Studio 73 in Brixton Village from August 31st - September 13th.  The FREE WINE will be about on Friday 4th of September.  Mark it in your diaries you busy busy peeps.

Summer market time has arrived and I'll be at the Made in Camberwell Arts Market on June 20th and at the Urban Art Fair on July 11th and 12th.  Mr. Raymondo Stanbrook Esquire will be accompanying me for both of these events and you can also check out him and a load of other Mr. Makers at Manmade in the Old Truman Brewery this weekend. I am going to trundle on up there for sure.

In other news, pangolins are cool aren't they? I've developed a strange fascination for animals that curl into balls. They remind me of Popples in a most appealing way.  Anyway, I have started a mini series of curled up animals. More on that another time.

I hope you are enjoying your long June days and that, should you need any drawing doing, you'll give me a bell. Will Smith says it best really. Summertime!
