PAPER, STRING AND A BIT OF WIND



Hello all, sorry I haven't posted anything for a while but I have been quite busy on a number of exciting projects.
One of them being a kite workshop which I have been invited to do at the amazing KRETS GALLERY in Malmo (Sweden).

PAPER, STRING AND A BIT OF WIND will be a two day kite workshop for both adults and children which will take place on the 6th / 7th August. On the 6th we will be building and decorating the kites at the gallery from 12 till 16. The following day we will be meeting at KRETS at 12 o'clock where we will go to the beach for kites for a grand test flight.

Their is a entrance fee of 50 SEK (Swedish kronor) but this includes the price of the materials for the kites (which you get to keep afterwards) and lunch for the day. If you are interested in coming along then please email krets@krets.info as soon as possible as their is limited places.

Along side the workshop I will also be exhibiting some of my own kites.
So I hope to see you their, its going to be lots of fun.

FLYING MAN PRIVATE COMMISSION
















Hello, I have been very busy the last week sorting out certain bits and bobs, which I will be posting more about over the next few days/weeks.

In the mean time this is a private commission I've been working on for a friend, its an image that has evolved from one of the designs I made for the kite show back in March.
The piece needed to be very large, actually the biggest piece I've work on! so it really befitted from using the same bold colourful paper that I used for the kites.
Also this time the wax paper needed to be attached to normal cartridge paper (instead of plastic), so this gave me great incentive to experiment with other ways of assembling and attaching the shapes. It was really exciting to do a college on such a big scale, and to develop graphic elements that needed to be quite bold and stripped of too much detail.
It was also interesting to develop an excising drawing in a new context,
I feel that this as well as the technique and scale of the piece provides some interesting possibilities for my future work.
