Website Wednesday

Today has been website wednesday !

I have been busy updating my portfolio with my branding , creative production , wedding stationery , publication and private commissions from over the past year. 

As we have started a new year, I have promised myself that I will post to my website and give it the love it deserves! So watch this space…  

The Blind Tiger

Introducing the Blind Tiger Bar! I was commissioned by Bestival to create a hand drawn logo design and hand painted exterior artwork for the fabulous Blind Tiger Bar. As the new ‘hidden’ venue for 2015, my illustration was to be used to draw the crowd in by spotting the tiger in the woods, leading them inside! I am incredibly proud to show the creative production and development of my latest work.

 

Cabaret Noir

I am incredibly proud to show the photos of my most recent commission for Green Eye Productions to produce the branding and hand painted interior and exterior artwork for the fabulous Cabaret Noir at this years Isle of Wight Festival! Here are the original illustrations and creative production photos that show how Cabaret Noir went from concept to reality!

The Octopus Bar

In August I had the pleasure of creating a bespoke venue design for the fabulous Ventnor Fringe Festival

Originally created by a team of local students in 2010 the festival follows the core principles of the famous Edinburgh Fringe that inspired it, in which any artist can take part. Since then, the Ventnor Fringe has gradually grown into one of the Island’s most exciting new festivals, attracting more than 300 performers in 2014 from all over the world

I was commissioned to hand paint a giant octopus onto their ‘Observatory Bar’ which sits above the seafront overlooking Ventnor Beach..

Isle of Arts.

I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in the Arts Trail for the fabulous Isle of Arts , coming to our very own Ventnor this weekend!

The Arts Trail provides festival goers with the opportunity to discover a spectacular collection of paintings, sculptures and other Art installations. Mostly created by Island artists, they are displayed in a number of venues around the town and seafront and well worth a stroll through the town during your visit to the festival! Many are for sale, and some of the artists are happy to take commissions too!

Here’s the my hand-drawn map created to guide you through the town to each venue!

Bouncing Baby Boy!

After ‘Wedstival’ was sent to print, I then began working on a hand-drawn baby postcard to be sent by the proud parents on the arrival of little Kees! I was asked to incorporate elements of Holland and Bristol to create a keepsake and a more traditional way of introducing him to the family.. a wonderful commission to be part of!
