June calender was a collage of bits of stuff.
Its rainy season in Japan.
It’s February! Halleluah (Im not a fan of January). This month not particularly related to the season. Valentines theme? screw that. February’s calender page is a mix of all leftover bits of drawings, screen print, photocopy and painting dating back to long ago. I dont like to throw stuff away. Its all under the bed, but now a bit less of it, as i used it. In your face naysayers.
This year me and my husband made calenders to give to some of our friends and family.
January says Happy New Year and has a sheep because 2015 is year of the sheep!
I will post each month up as we go along the year.
who knows where we’ll all be by the end of 2015!
I always loved the illustrator Jan Pienowski’s work with marbling and silhouettes. This summer at art camp we made some illustrations in his style.
I recently finished a lovely commission which was to paint a bookshelf with dangly plants onto a kitchen wall. The clients chose some book titles and let their friends make suggestions too. As they have kindles/e-readers they don’t have a need for many books in their house anymore.
Using coloured masking tape to mark out where the plants and books would be.
This is another set of illustrations for a book that will be published next year for use in London ESOL classrooms. It is a story about a woman who is over 60 and assumes that the young men on the bus don’t deserve the priority seats.
She feels bad, and is more careful in the future but still doesn’t like it when kids take them.
I am an artist, illustrator, weaver and workshop facilitator currently living and working in London, UK.
