So after a fantastic weekend at the almighty All Tomorrow's Parties Festival, I'm now trying to tie up my loose ends before Christmas arrives in all its glory. Above I've posted two shots of a new piece I recently finished for Jake Blanchard's upcoming C Zine. It's made from a mixture of oil paint, acrylic and papercut, and is based on the greek myth of the Cornucopia. Click on the images to view the whole piece which I've just put up on Tweed, and make sure to keep an eye on Jake's site for updates on this one.

Leaves leaves leaves

I spent yesterday around Hattie, Chris and Alex's house photographing a new illustration for Minale Design Strategy's 2010 calendar (above). It's an interpretation of their logo for the month of November, made up of over 300 papercut leaves. An enjoyable project, but quite a workout on the old scalpel blades.

Designersblock: Interiors 2010

Over the past week I have been busy working with 3D designer and artist Thomas Forsyth on our piece for this year's Interiors 2010 exhibition. Tom was selected by Designersblock to take part in the exhibition, and due to the success of our past collaborations thought it only fitting that we teamed together. For the project we'll be working with Emmaus in Brighton; a fantastic organisation that offers work and community for people who have become socially excluded or homeless.

Interiors 2010 will run from 24th - 27th January at the Birmingham NEC. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates as the project develops.

Wrap Up the Year

I've just heard that the tile I designed for Frinton Press (above) has been chosen as one of 15 designs to be included in the upcoming 'Square Up the Year' exhibition at No:ID, London. These 10cm x 10cm tiles will be used to create a range of printed wrapping paper, which'll be sold both at the exhibition and at a range of shops and boutiques.

The exhibition will run from the 10th - 20th December, and features work from all of the artists who have exhibited at the No:ID gallery in 2009. A big thanks to Pat and Cissy for getting me involved in this project.
