Hello there! It has been a bit of a while hasn't it? August and September have been all of the busy but I have missed you! Really I have.
The last few weeks of summer were a flurry of printing to get ready for my show with Abi Heyneke at Studio 73. It was delightful and the private view was full of lovely people and also pooches from Abi's local dog park; the inspirations for her woodblock prints.
I then plunged back into finishing 'The Beast', a giant panel for the street gallery on Ferndale Road in Brixton. The gallery organised as part of the Brixton Design Trail for the London Design Festival. It was finished in the nick of time and is a cheerful vision of what Brixton would look like were it taken over by nature and the parakeets. It will be in situ for a month and then the good folks at the Brixton Windmill have offered to take it off my hands. I miss it a little but the Mr. is pleased to have our lounge back. (Pictures by James Jones.) There was a jazzy party to celebrate the launch of the trail at Pop Brixton. We then headed round the corner to Brixton East for Art Booty which was full of AMAZING things of all sorts, curated by lovely Emy from Brixi.
Speaking of Brixton Windmill, I will be there leading a free drawing workshop next Saturday October 3rd as part of The Big Draw. Come along between 2-5pm. There will be chickens! Chickens? Yes, chickens. And I'm also working on a children's book for the good folks of the windmill which will be done in December.
Over the next few weekends, there are several Crafty Fox Markets to check out. I will be at the Dogstar in Brixton next Sunday with all the Collection prints and some other new screen printed delights. Today I'm looking forward to a browse of the stalls at Kachette. Must not spend all the monies!
There will be lots more market and news galore in the run up to December so, you know, watch this space and all that! And do get in touch if you are in need of drawings of any sort. Until October friends!
