Right I have just had a week and a bit off, and during this time I have not done any drawing or art. This is manly because I have been stinking ill, on my actual birthday I was so ill I only just managed to get showered and dressed! So I have only just managed to get around to doing the things I wanted to do, on the second to last day of my time off... oh well carry on!

Here are some pictures of what I have been up to during and leading up to October. A mixture of painting, and making.

Here is a photograph of my canvas bag, I finally got to see it on the second to last day of the show. The little red dot on the label means that some one bought it! And it wasn't anyone I knew :)

This is my poster design for the Pantomime which is being put on at the Jolly Brewer in Lincoln. It is in some respects traditional in that the main characters are female, hence why Aladdin is a female in my poster. The Panto is called "Aladdin and the Magic Tankard"

Another loverly thing I have been up to is....I gave all my canvases and poster prints and badges to my boyfriends parents. They took it all to a cafe in Scarborough, Nutmeg. This is where my work is currently being shown, much like when I showed my work at the Jolly Brewer. I do have some photographs but I will save them for when I find out how it went. Not long now, it finishes at the end of this month.

Well that is what I have been up to, it's just a shame that I was ill for so long, I would have gotten so much more done.

Two exhibitions today!

Today is a very busy day for me! Yesterday I sent my canvases and badges etc to a cafe in Scarborough for a 6 week exhibition. The website is shown below. This is a very nice opportunity as I wouldn't have known about it unless my boy friends parent had told me about it and offered to take it up to Scarborough for me. I really appreciate the help.


And also today I have a custom painted canvas bag, this bag is a part of the Canvas bag exhibition which goes on until the 16th of October. The website link is also below. I painted this while in sort of flu fever the night before my parents were going to take it in to the gallery for me. It look me 4 hours of intense painting and my arm hurt a lot afterward, I was very ill, I'm not sure how I did it.


I am also working on a Panto poster for the Jolly Brewer Theatre Company, Aladdin and the Magic Tankard. so once that is done I shall post it here too.

So here is a quick snap from my phone, of my Badger army. They are Badger Badges, but now there also magnets, they are a lot smaller this time roughly 2 inches instead of 6! Only done the purple ones so far, got green and pink to go. They will be on sale at the Kind vintage fayre on the 30th of July.

Stall, How Bazaar, and other wonderful things

Right my stall is due this Saturday, and my work is up in the Jolly Brewer in Lincoln now. I am going their for a drink tonight (it's also a pub) to take some photos so watch this space. I am also donating some prints to my good friend Courtney for her charity event called How Bazaar. Some of the images are already on this blog but for those of you who are too lazy to scroll down to find them here they are again. Both the images are available for sale at the Jolly Brewer and their will be post cards on the stall as well. I will also be available for commission.

Due for May

Well unfortunately I am having to withdraw from Laura's In Vitro gallery at the end of this month.It was a really good idea to keep my work out in the public eye, but I can't afford the very small amount she asks to keep it there... It's only £30 or so a month, which says some thing about my finances that I can't afford that... Oh well. It is very good though and I would recommend it.

However at the beginning of May I will be exhibiting my work at The Jolly Brewer. This is free but they have a chocker block schedule at the mo
ment so I'm lucky I got in when most of the bank holidays are so more people will see my work :)

Here are some pictures of some new things I will have up their as well as the stuff I already have.
This is the label design I have come up with for under my pieces, to say what they are and give prices. It's a little boring just to write on a piece of white paper don't you think?
This is what I am going to put up instead of just a boring bit of paper describing what I do. It is a self portrait and there will be a speech bubble saying hello to everyone and telling them what I do.
This is my final drawing. I'm going to try and get it printed on as big a canvas as I can. The Jolly Brewer is a pub which mostly plays rock music, so I'm hoping this image will be very popular.
Well once I have coloured these in I will post again. I am also going to be working on some posters soon so I hope to get them done quickly.

Exhibition stoooof

Well then, it's been a while... again, this is mainly down to the fact that I am working a lot.
But never mind that pish now I have an announcement!

I have had my work up at my friends gallery called In Vitro... and now The Jolly Brewer in Lincoln want my work up too :D

This is super cool as it's a pub and people might buy it under the influence, its the probably going to be the same stuff as the things I have up at In Vitro now. I am also entering the In Vitro Competition "Shoe Horn". It will be really cool as you can design your own shoes, the Facebook page link is below for those who want to have a look at it
