New Artwork- Faces

faces-mixed media artwork

Faces, mixed media on handmade paper, 14x21cm

I’m not quite sure where I was going with this- probably more of a warm up piece if anything. As you can see, I’m quite excited that next month is October.

Playing with Packaging- Small Mixed Media Sculpture

Another Playing with Packaging piece- a small mixed media sculpture.

I hate throwing away interesting/nice looking packaging so I try to use it in some way. This is made from two cardboard boxes and one plastic container from Lily Lolo.

This piece includes layers of paint, ink, vintage imagery, flat back pearls, thread and cut text.

Illustration Friday- Beard

IFbeards
Idiot
, watercolour and collage text on paper,16x12cm

As this week’s Illustration Friday topic is beard and I happen to be a watcher ofWheezywaiter videos (a beardlover if you will) I thought I should create something focused around Craig and his loverly beard.

I also then decided to add my favourite quote of his, because why not.

New Artwork- Pick A Card

Scan 5

 

Pick a Card, acrylic ink, collage and acetate prints on paper, 14.8 x 21 cm

This is a small piece inspired by meeting the lovely Damon Conlan in Shop in the Square,Wolverhampton last Friday. Card tricks were performed, ideas were exchanged, art was inspired.

The playing card with my name on it (card trick leftovers, the best kind of leftovers of course) was central to this piece, I also scanned the back of the card and used it as a small background for the magician.

You can follow Damon on Twitter and Facebook.

New Artwork: Moleskine Pages

stories

Stories, acrylic ink, collage, cut text and pigment ink pen in Moleskine sketchbook.

Cut text reads:

That is the time of the year,

full of fog,

and little

consciousness.

I looked forward to tea,

and stories

in front of cheap

success.
