Many minis

Enjoying the variety of doing lots of mini projects at the moment, thought I'd show you a couple.

First up, a personalised wedding card for a couple who met at a yoga class. The other references are because the groom has a bike shop and they married at a local hotel:



Secondly a personalised birth plate. I haven't done one for a long time, and usually do a bright Noah's Ark with animals, but the client requested all girly pink and purples, with a stork delivering baby Daisy:

 
 

Other mini-projects currently in progress are a tattoo design, a pet portrait, an old-skool tattoo style painting for someone who bought one of my tattoo painting a couple of years ago and some paper cut-outs.

Salty Super Sculptures

I went to the brilliant 27th annual Family Sculpture Day in Gateshead's Saltwell Park recently, themed 'The Wonders of the World'.

Hundreds of people showed up with their hammers and nails and turned a mountain of wood scraps into their own wonders. We spotted the Eiffel Tower, Tutankhamun, the Angel of the North, the Tyne Bridge, and a couple of Olympic champions. There was also ceramics painting from Muddy Fingers Pottery. I got a bit carried away painting ceramic hearts, rockets and dinosaurs. Great fun.




 

Sanctuary Artspace

I've just finished a really fun commission for Sanctuary Artspace at the lovely 13th Century St Edmunds Chapel in Gateshead.

Community Arts Chaplain Rev. Jim Craig is passionate about bringing a varied programme of exhibitions and workshops, have a wee look at their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sanctuaryspace?v=app_6261817190&filter=1

Jim commissioned an A3 black and white line drawing incorporating the building, the beautiful processional cross, the Sanctuary Arts logo and something representing art. Wanna see?
