It's been a while so here is some free art for Peterborough...specifically located along my dog walking route in Hampton Vale. None of this work is mine, all of it was kindly donated for a free art event in the City Centre a while back.
A quick update on an unusual commission for a pet portrait. An Obey style poster of Pepper the Schnauzer.
Started with a line drawing.
Made a few alterations
Coloured in the black layer.
Here's my desk looking busy, you can see I've started the second layer. Top left is the original brief.
Finished colouring in the second layer.
Finally scanned the picture above into Photoshop so I could get the outlines and print it off A1 size. Just the cutting and spraying to do now.
It was the opening of the City Treasures exhibition at Harriets in Peterborough last night. It was very well attended which was down to Dawn Birch-James who perfectly organised the event. Plenty of Peterboroughs artistic talent was there, I got to speak to Process Smith (Blok Collective and Overground founder), Tony Nero (soon to be exhibiting in San Francisco), Luisa and Paco Calvo and Diane Nowell (Soon to be exhibiting in Florida). Looks like I'm not the only Peterborough artist that finds more opportunities abroad than in my home town. Step up Peebo.
Some shots below of the preview...I'll be honest, they are not my usual crowd. In fact one old boy asked me if they were my photos! I didn't tell him they were stencils.
