‘Dandy Cat & Magenta Mouse’ take 2

Posted on

Can you see the resemblance?

One of the Artworks which sold at my solo show was ‘Mini Mouse and Cat’….

Last week talented comic book Artist and founder of Cereal Geek James Eatock (whom is also a dear friend of mine) presented me with his version of my Illustration for my Birthday gift and it transpired that it was him who’d bought my original drawing….
such an interesting take in two very different styles….I love it!

James named it: “Dandy Cat & Magenta Mouse”

Last year I featured the work of the talented local Illustrative artist Veronica Rowlands, her series of pictures  entitled London Fashion Dolls  and  Surreal Doll Collection  takes  familiar and nostalgic dolls and transforms into something more surreal and  fantastic .

Over the next few weeks, Veronica will be holding an exhibition that will feature her fashion dolls but also her more recent  ‘Interactive Wallpaper’ which has been created with members of the public across the city. To produce this piece of work, Veronica has taken her hand drawn characters to venues across London and asked for help from people of all ages to colour them in , adding their unique hand writing to a piece of community artwork to raise awareness and funds for Beating Bowel Cancer and Breast Cancer Care.

Fashion…What lies beneath

Posted on

So today was last Residency day at Art Fix….what a fantastic, productive week it’s been…….

I’ve been inspired by the works of Alexander Mc Queen from the Savage Beauty Show at the Victoria and Albert MuseumInspired from edgy trends and beautiful things to adorn my dolls, there is also a darker side to my thoughts…..underneath the aesthetics of Fashion lies dark truths….exploited interns being used for slave labour for high end Fashion Brands and slave labour in sweat shops for lower priced high street labels.

Sometimes I forget this….shop in certain places as I love the clothes and they’re affordable (fast fashion) but then feel sad when i think of the reason they’ve been made so cheaply.  I also adore Illustrating Fashion and exploring the craftsmanship behind these couture and high end labels…so I’m torn! My dolls  fit this image perfectly, aesthetic and sweet but real they’re not.10957127_10152893142197982_6341080444841026952_n 11070256_10152893143947982_641999569661975449_n 11070755_777074269043246_4059619679887668155_n 11081004_10152893142612982_4445612722004641937_n 11081205_10152893176132982_2372686264584680241_n

Good Monday, artsy kids! artFix London is back with another spectacular array of events that will blow you away this week. First things first – we’re the realest (as Iggy Azalea taught us) – we’d like to thank each and everyone of you who took time to come to our Swedish Film Festival.

Monday 16th March, 6:30 pm – today’s the final day of our Swedish Film Festival, so come and watch the closing film on our programme, the beautifully touching Bellville Baby (Mia Engberg, 2013).
