New Painting * Rise From the Ashes

Hello everyone, I finished another Life Book inspired painting which I’ve named ‘From the Ashes’.
I painted it to explore the situations we can sometimes find ourselves in, when going through a hard time in life, we can feel destroyed, burnt to the ground in a pile of ash on the floor.
I wanted this painting to show how we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and renew ourselves, it takes courage, self-love and determination, but it is possible.

I talk about this more in the video linked below.

Cute animals gift boxes

Hello everyone! I hope you are well and managing to get through January with a little sunshine and happiness in your lives.
I have mostly been hibernating, learning new software and creating these cute little animal gift boxes!
They were really fun to make and developed from some newly purchased Promarker pens that inspired me to create in a more animation style and then turn the images into paper cuts!! Yes more paper cuts because we love them!

Here is the finished result, the designs are available for download here

Design Museum 2017 – **video

Hello, I visited the new Design Museum in London last month as it had moved from the South Bank near London Bridge to it’s new home in Kensington High Street on the site of the former Commonwealth Building.

I initially went on a hunt for images of the Technics 1200 turntable for a project that I’m working on, but when I saw that a new Ferrari exhibition was on I decided to take a look.

It is probably the best designed exhibition I’ve been to, second only to the amazing armour galleries of the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow

On arrival you walk into a cubical filled with red light, now I knew I was sensitive to colour and light but this was something else, I couldn’t breath and felt as if I was being attacked by the light, I started choking lol it was so funny.

Here is a video of my visit, I filmed it in my ‘Alien Eyes’ style of filming as i call it.. lol enjoy!

Life Book 2017 painting – Finding Peace

I finished another life book lesson! This painting represents finding peace within a busy urban environment, as some of you may know in 2015 I experienced a huge change in the peacefulness of my area when a concentrated flight path for Heathrow Airport was diverted to over my home with no warning!!! I am moving!!

New Painting – Inner Strength

I managed to complete a painting over xmas :) it was actually inspired by a Life Book 2017 lesson but looks nothing like it.
It features the solar plexus chakra ‘Manipura’ as I do believe that chakras exist, I’ve only drawn a guy about 3 times so it was a good practice :)
