Really great to see this window artwork finally installed. The design brings together a variety of images created with young people who attend the Saturday Night Project. The image is a playful reflection of  activities that run during the sessions and was developed through hands on workshops where young people were co-creators alongside artists and musicians. Whoop!

iPhone Creature Cuddles

Whilst waiting for the rain to stop (so I could continue working on an outdoor mural) I had a quick play with Procreate Pocket. What a great app it is :)

A series of fun robot making workshops at Kirklees Libraries this week. Some amazing designs and its only day one!

A brief return to iPhone painting

During a recent budget flight to Italy I revisited painting on the iPhone. I had fun capturing portraits of fellow passengers waiting for the toilet. Here are the unedited images made over a 90 minute period. It was fun, but it's not my medium of choice anymore.

Out walking today I met a woman rubbing the leg of a goose. 'Suspected cramp' she said.

We Are Here - Wakefield Museums

 A selection of designs for Pontefract Museum

A selection of designs for Pontefract Museum

I was commissioned by Wakefield Museums to create a series of window-etch illustrations to adorn windows across three of their sites. Following drawing workshops with local children, families and adults (using objects from the museum collections) I developed a set of illustrations unique to each of the museum sites which reflect the artefacts and stories that they hold. Posted here are only a few of the many images I created for the project.

Wild Woods Bradford

Projection on the ex M&S Building on Darley Street, Bradford

It has been wonderful to be part of Wild Woods Bradford with the lovely folk at The BrickBox . Initially I was commissioned to create a playful hand drawn image on 4 large windows of the ex M&S building on Darley Street in Bradford (see here), and was then asked to create live and in the moment projections on the front of the building during a series of events in October and November. Top full-on animated fun! What a blast! Photography by Yvonne Roberts.

Fun Day of drawing

Yesterday was a fun day of public drawing. Firstly a visit to Thornhill for a couple of short school based drawing workshops, and then over to Bradford for more work on the Wild Woods Windows. Top Fun!
