Hi everyone, a quick post about what i've been up to lately creating a new piece for a great nostalgic art exhibition called 'Memorabilia' which opens this weekend. An exhibition of artwork and objects from childhood memory and memorabilia by over 100 artists with 30% to 100% of all sales going to charity in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital to be held as part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail. Check out the online shop: LINK

Sat 6th & Sun 7th of July at Norlington Road Studios, Leyton E10 6LA. 12pm - 5pm.

This theme has been a joy to work on drawing some of my childhood TV heroes once again, something I would do many years ago like most kids, drawing Spiderman and saturday morning cartoons. I wanted to create a piece that would be very nostalgic showing TV influences and referencing film, a time for many of us growing up in the 1980's of wonder and excitement when we used to come back from school or wake up early morning weekends and tune in to watch Knight rider or Thundercats or even Sesame Street.

Drawing, Drawing, Drawing...
My new tea piece is called 'The Wonder Years' and will be shown for the first time at this fabulous show. Plus to make things a bit more fun I've also included the seven dragon balls from the 'Dragon ball' cartoon along with Goku and even Scrooge McDuck's nephews are hiding throughout the piece from 'Duck Tales'... if you can find them within this vintage party. Below is a little preview of 'The Wonder Years'.

So if you want to go back in time and re-live some nostalgic moments then please join us this weekend :-)
