drawing shed day 3

yesterday i spent a final day finishing off my design on the drawing shed. in the evening the doodle party was a success, lots of folk turned up and added work to the big drawing wall at project space leeds, ate cake and had a good time. over the last week i've become quite attached to the shed, i'm sad that after the gallery closes at 5pm today it'll be painted black for next week's creation by Leslie Halliwell. such is life. for more photos of my shed drawings have a look here.

drawing shed day 1

i spent this afternoon beginning my piece on the drawing shed at project space leeds. heres how far i've gotten. i'll spend all day tomorrow completing it. there's a lot of blank shed left to draw on. thankfully i have a big pile of posca pens at the ready. more photos of my progress soon.. you can read more about the drawing shed on it's very own blog here.

yesterday i asked my chap Sam to act as a random number generator to pick a winner for the Ten Fingers giveaway. he chose number 11, a lady named Sky. i'll be sending her a little parcel later this week. over and out i need some sleep!

the drawing shed

this coming week i will be at project space leeds drawing on a shed. 'the drawing shed' started out at the tate modern in london earlier this year to mark the gallery's 10th birthday. various artists have created work on the shed. it will be in leeds at p.s.l. for ten weeks, with a different artist working on it each week.

i am going to draw all over it, creating a themed scene that incorporates the shape of the shed. i'm not letting on what the theme is, you can come and have a look if you'd like. the shed will be open to the public from wednesday 28th-saturday 31st july. on friday 30th there will be an event in the evening from 5:30pm-7:30pm which will involve cake eating, drawing and looking at my shed creation.

come if you can!

a new website and a giveaway!

this week i have launched my new website, its been long overdue for a while now. to celebrate it's completion i am going to give away one copy of a collaborative zine i recently made called ten fingers. it contains work by a number of my very talented friends including gemma correll, anthony zinonos, and jen collins to name a few. the issue i am giving away is number 2 in the edition of 100 (i'm keeping number one for myself, sorry).

if you would like to own this little paper treat i thought we'd keep in tow with the zine theme which is 'hometowns', tell me something interesting about where you are from. leave me a comment on this post and i will pick one winner at random on monday 26th july.

how does that sound?

the travelling menagerie

last week i spent a few days in Falmouth with the Girls Who Draw putting up the Travelling Menagerie exhibition at the Here and Now gallery. it was a great few days, nice to be near the sea and explore some unfamiliar charity shops (i found a few excellent treasures!) the exhibition is up until the end of July, more info about it here.
