So, the My A'th Kar NQY Public Art Project has had a brief break due to some personal commitments that i had to attend to. I've been looking after my partner Melissa for the last 6 weeks, as she had to have a hip operation. It was pretty heavy surgery on her leg and hip, and i had to be her full time carer and look after. Have a look at the photo of her x-ray below!
I did a little design recently for a Christmas Card Competition for Shelter Box, my submission is below. It was a bit of a rush job, but i kind of like the image!
I've only just recently had chance to sort out my studio space too! I've been in there for about 4 months, but haven't had a chance to unpack things. I had to sort it out last week, as we had a new addition to the space in the shape of top photographer, Adam Gibbard! So the studio has now had all my crap properly unpacked into it and put away!
I'm now ready to get back onto the My A'th Kar NQY project, to take it to the conclusion of Phase 1, with Phase 2 hot on it's heels! We've been given a some wall space at Newquay Police Station to do another mural. I've done a design for it (below), but i think it will need a bit of redesigning, due to the allocated wall!
One problem we're going to encounter, is the fact that the wall space is 3 floors off the ground. The solution will be to produce the art work on large boards away from the site, and then attatch them to the building once finished.
We've got a couple of painting sessions coming up this week on the Burger King mural, in order to get it finished asap. It's going to be a bit nippy, but at least i'll have a warm top lip as i'm growing a moustache for the whole of November for the 'Movember' campaign. It's to help raise awareness about Prostate Cancer in men, and is a very worth will cause. If you feel like donating some money for a good cause while i look a bit creepy, then go here > http://uk.movember.com/mospace/354820/
Until the next time!
