Apparently the weatherman says it gonna be a cold rainy weekend, but as Ethel Waters once said;
“I don't care what the weatherman says
When the weatherman says it's raining,
You'll never hear me complaining,
I'm certain the sun will shine”
~
Whatever you’re up to this weekend its probably time to pull out your knitwear.
This picture is one I did for @rowanyarns for their Liberties catalogue back in 2010/11, Shot in Fife Scotland by a nice photographer I don’t remember the name of now. A pleasure of a job but damn was it cold…face covering up a great deal of pain🥶🤣

Throwback Thursday calls for a very special picture. Back in September 2016 i somehow managed to get @njide to agree to be my wife! Not sure she knew what she was getting herself in for 🤣
She has never let me down, never hurt me, never shown me anything but love. Astonishing really that someone can be so selfless and love so unconditionally. Being such an exemplary wife, mother, daughter and friend only makes it harder for the rest of us to keep up!...so this is me thanking the universe that she is still my wife. 🙌🏼

Beautiful recycled plastic plinths we recently produced with @make_it_london for @matchesfashion Mayfair.
Big thanks to @tinavaia for the connection.
The mix of blue dapple, black dapple, ocean opaque and kaleido coloured material looked brilliant together and was a pleasure to work with 🙌🏼

The aim of art is a constant, and a continuous job to reveal visually the attitude of our mentality. And the less we disturb the influence of our mentality the more I believe we come close to the truth. - Josef Albers

CSM colour theory workshop
Student plastic spectrum display Kings X campus
.
.
This workshop was designed to encourage the students to expand their knowledge and perception of colours and materials, exploring colour through the medium of waste plastics.
It was a great pleasure to have the opportunity to share my experience as a professional artist with young aspiring fashion designers.
While the importance of working sustainably within the creative industry was discussed, the emphasis was on understanding the principles of colour and form within the context of fashion.
I began with a bold word of advise ;
“Art must always be your first consideration as a designer/artist/maker and never an after thought. If you put Art first, you will be listening to the truth within you, as art is at the very frontier of creation and self expression. Whatever your craft/skill, without art nothing of you will exist within that which you intend to create”
I can only hope that what I shared with them all made a positive impact on their development and on the way they’ll work in the future.
Thanks to @chrisdesignkelly for inviting me 🙏🏼

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? - J. B. Priestley

Have been working on this wonderful waffle elephant model courtesy of @donshi one of our magnificent project members. It’s gone from a thought to a sketchy hand drawing, transformed into a digital model, to be cut out of ply wood in order to make a maquette model of the giant sculpture we’re planning for our current project ‘Elephant In The Room’. It’s incredible how it feels to see thought become reality, to feel a vision become tangible. I’ll be sharing some pictures of the finished model tomorrow next to one of our early concept sketches so keep a look out! 🙌🏼

“The ground we walk on, the plants and creatures, the clouds above constantly dissolving into new formations.
Each gift of nature possessing its own radiant energy, bound together by cosmic harmony”
~ Ruth Bernhard

Although this particular piece was made using cut flowers and foliage within a man made frame...every time I work with natural/living materials it enriches and validates my profession for me that much further 🙌🏼

“You’re standing on the threshold of success!...don’t look down now, it’ll make you dizzy. Boy are they in for a surprise!”
~ Timothy Q. Mouse (Dumbo 1941)
Powerful quote from one of Disney’s best loved stories. It feels so poignant to connect with this part of the story now that the ‘Elephant In The Room’ project, hosted by www.thecolourofwater.co.uk, is so close to take off after months of dedicated work by our incredible team.
There is always room for more however and we’re currently looking for some skilled help in building a social media campaign for the project.
If you want to get involved or simply want to know more, get in touch!

Unused ticket sculptures I made this week for an eco travel campaign. They were too well made and would intimidate the viewer I was told 🙄🤣 (Note to self, do your job less well next time) loved making them all the same🙌🏼

Some test illustration colour washes for a men’s fashion promo. Sometimes it’s nice to paint over what you’ve done without being sensitive about the result. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, both results are as valuable as each other🙌🏼✨
Happy Monday everyone!
