The Ladywellephant- a charity elephant all about Ladywell!

A little while ago (ahem!) the lovely Slater & King in Ladywell asked me to create another painting to go on a model of a baby elephant which could then be raffled off with all proceeds going to charity. This time round the ele was only a miniature (aww!) and to celebrate the lovely area of Ladywell I dedicated the whole design to the area of South East London, my old home not so long ago. The mural features Hilly Fields park, the view into central London, the cafes, several dogs, my cat who sneaked in amongst the flowers and Slater & Kings shop too! Tickets can be bought from Slater & King but hurry there's only a week or so to go as the raffle ends Christmas Eve. All proceeds go to the charity Signal supporting parents of children with Autism.

Pleased to Eat You - Postcards for a short Film

A couple of months ago I created 3 illustrations to accompany a short film called "Pleased to Eat You" by film director Adrian Hedgecock. The short film is humorous tale of 3 friends stranded at sea with a predicament and is influenced by 1920's and 30's Art Deco and musicals and features dancing girls, pirates and much much more! My brief was to focus on 3 scenes from the film and expand on them letting my imagination run away! I chose a scene featuring a cannibalistic fish, a French restaurant at sea and the finale featuring lots of dancing girls with vegetables! The postcards are being given away to supporters of the films crowd funding campaign. To see clips of the film and find out more about contributing visit their website. (Only a few days left though to contribute to help fund the special effects the campaign ends December 8th!)
