I was really pleased to be commissioned to design and print this Friday's Sport Magazine front cover, especially for the FA Cup Final! If you live or work in London, eager distributors will be thrusting free copies your way outside every tube and rail station. Come on you blues!
St Bride Foundation also gave me the opportunity to design and print a special napkin to be presented to acerbic Sunday Times food critic, AA Gill.
Speaking of St Bride Foundation, there will be a small solo exhibition of my work in the bar, starting next Wednesday 16 May. It will be on for the next six weeks. No private view, I'm afraid, as I work most evenings, but the bar is definitely worth a visit - I may even join you after I'm finished teaching in the print workshop!
I will be shortly producing a second edition of "Up Over The Downs"
in a new colourway. The second print, "Rise Aloft & Soar" has also been selling very well. I also have just finished preliminary sketches for the third and final print in the series, but will be working on other commissions first - I envisage this will be ready by Autumn!
East End Prints commissioned me to produce an edition for the Royal Wedding - I wanted to avoid patriotic hysteria and cheap cynicism and decided to produce an uplifting celebration of successful relationships, using a quote given at my own wedding - I didn't sell any at the exhibition, but like all good relationships, this one is in for the long haul!
Must dash, work to do!...
