Burnley Youth Theatre

Last year I was accepted into the pool of freelancers at Burnley Youth Theatre. I originally applied to get into designing and painting sets with the young people, but as I got to find out more about the organisation, I found out how important it is to the community, even outside of the traditional theatre […]

Science and Visions

I’d been wanting to do a print using a CMYK colour scheme for a while (maybe influenced by Scott Duffey’s Tuneyards poster, maybe not!) and I had the perfect Pop Art style design to do it, but never got round to printing it. Then The Print Social announced that the theme of their next exhibition was Visions […]

27 Club Screenprints

I’ve always thought that there aren’t enough exhibitions for street artists, so when dot-art sent out an opportunity to curate a group show, I decided to do something about it. There are 2 other ‘similar’ artists on their books in that they work with spraypaint, and after a few emails back and forth, I put a […]

Kidderminster Paint Jam

Back in March I replied to a shout out from SSOSVA member Deeds about a paint jam in his home town of Kidderminster. Any excuse to visit my old man and paint something for myself instead of for someone else! Of course, after I’d signed up, I had a total creative block. Until I remembered about […]

Oriel Chambers

Earlier this year, I popped in to see my agency dot-art and Lucy said that she’d be sending out an opportunity right up my street which was a client who wanted a repeating design based on the form and shape of the windows painting down the corridor of their refurbished offices in Oriel Chambers.  Repeating pattern, bright colours, painted […]

New Heights High School

Organised by Carolyn at dot-art, I had a full day workshop in New Heights Pupil Referral Unit to create some artwork to be hung around their Multi Use Games Area. This was to be in the school’s logo colours and represent their values. For this group, I designed the artwork ahead of the day with […]

Managing a business with anxiety

Imagine that you’ve been offered an amazing job, but one of the conditions is that you never knew when you were going to get paid, or how much would land in your account. You’d hesitate right? After all, how would you pay your rent, or put food in your belly? You’d fall behind on your […]

NYAS – Workshop Blog

I’m just going to start this blog post with a huge “thank you” to Pilkington Charities Fund for donating to NYAS so this project could go ahead. And that’s not just from me, it’s also from the young people whose lives you have helped enrich with these activities. Let me introduce myself. My name is […]

Leonard Cheshire Disability

After working with Leonard Cheshire Disability on their CanDo programme, teaching Street Art to young adults with learning disabilities, I was asked to produce a promotional video for the scheme. I went around various community groups and youth centres where it was running, filmed the activities and interviewed some of the participants about their experiences. […]
