Last week my wife said to me I need to go to work with her because she needed some help writing on some large boards. I agreed to help out but didn't really know what I was letting myself in for. Today I found out we were going to work at Thorpe Hall in Peterborough which is a beautiful building that has been a hospice for the last 20 years providing palliative care. The job was simple but emotional, we had to write the words "before I die I want to" at the top of four large boards.
The plan is to screw the four boards together into a giant cube and take them to various locations and ask people to write what they want to do before they die on them.
Happy with how they turned out considering we didn't plan anything, we just turned up and painted. It was a good afternoon.

Ridng on the back of the Help for Heroes canvases a friend of mine and former squaddie suggested I did some t-shirts with the soldier and child image on them so here they are.
Go to the tee shop for mens and ladies shirts which are £18.99 with £5 of those pounds going to the Help for Heroes charity. Perhaps if you're a bit more flush go to the art shop where £25 from a canvas will go to the charity.
In other news my mother-in-law suggested I submit a design for Peterboroughs war memorial using the image above but I cant help thinking it will just look like a big version of those green soldiers from Toy Story. What the hell, I'll send it off today. I'm used to being scoffed at.
A few weeks ago I was asked if I'd donate some work to a Help for Heroes auction being held in Peterbough. Obviously I said yes but I didn't have anything suitable so I had to do something new. After much research on the internet I found the perfect image and cut out a 1 layer stencil.
The finished piece had a grey background with a Union Flag painted using transparent black and it ended up raising £165 for the charity.
I've just updated the KORP ON TOUR page to include a recent exhibition I attended in Cambourne. The exhibition was a success because it raised near on £1,000 for the charity and I got a couple of sales and commissions from it. Check out the pictures here from the Cambourne Art Exhibition for EACH.
The Cambourne Art Exhibition for East Anglian Childrens Hospices went well. Sales and commissions on the night mean I'm going to have a busy few weeks, especially with Upfest just around the corner. I forgot to take my camera so I had to record this video on my Nano. The first 25 seconds of footage is Craig Kerrecoe's work.
A little update on an exhibition I'll be involved in soon. Cambourne Art Exhibition is a one night only special art exhibition and charity fundraising event in aid of EACH (East Anglian Children's Hospices). A group of local artists have gathered together to create this wonderful event, donating 30% of all sales proceeds on the night to EACH. There will also be a charity raffle with a selection of fantastic art prizes, generously donated by the participating Artists/Makers and other prizes donated by our sponsors.
This event is a great opportunity to view & buy original paintings, prints, photographs & sculpture directly from the following local Artists:
