Belated Halloween

It’s that time for bucket load of candy corns, trick or treat stash’s, dressing up scarily cute or creepingly horrifying and deliberate scares. Halloween’s over and I’m still in the mood for spokes, that and discounted chocolate. Unfortunately my art and blogging have been pushed out of the weekdays and on to the meager weekends….

Tate, Thames, Tea

Another week, another gallery/ museum. This week I was greeted by the large scale walls of an old power station, The Tate Modern. The prominent landmark is located in Southbank, an admiring walking distance from London Bridge station. Many pit stops were made along the way. The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its…

Mad about Liberty London

After my previous post, it was only fair for me to visit Liberty London. Located on the corner of Regent Street, the department store is clear as a bell with its Tudor-like frontage. Liberty was founded in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty. Its Grade II-listed Tudor replica was built in 1924 and was constructed with…

But First Coffee

How do you like your coffee? I’m not much of a coffee fan. My soup-bowl-sized mugs are always brimming with coffees sweeter counterpart hot chocolate. My latest artwork was for an open call held by Movenpick, suppliers of fine food. They invited designers and illustrators to design a slim can packaging for their new coffee…

Liberty Open Call

For the second time this year Liberty London is holding an Open Call. They’re offering artists the chance to have their work famously printed onto Liberty fabric. With the use of Instagram and the hashtag #LibertyOpenCall they will scout unique talent based in the UK. Did I get hashtagging? Yes I did. I’d be over…

Absolut-ly Fabulous

As of late all I’ve been doing is working on submissions one after the other. I’m doing something that I used to shy away from and that was entering them. Times have now changed. I now believe in my work, credit myself (which I believe is important) and look for challenges to help me improve….

Early Scares to Exciting Submissions

Here’s to another horrifying submission. I wasn’t planning to work on scary projects a month before Halloween. I’m not a fan of scary movies and I doubt I could sit through another chilling trailer. But when a chance and challenge like this arises, how can I possibly say no? This submission was for the horror…

Halloween: He’s Coming Home

For the past week I’ve put the 100 day art challenge on hold. I’ve come across a few competitions and have jumped at the chance to take them on. I know its a little too early for Halloween, but here is my latest, darkest and scariest submission for the sequel movie Halloween. I bravely watched…

Her Theory

Another post based on an open call. This theme in particular is one I hold close to me. The theme is called “I am a women, this is my legacy”. Upon hearing about this challenge, I was excited to take it on; from the drawing board to the final touches, ideas kept leaping in from…

Courage Through Dawn

Now you might be reviewing the title “Courage Through Dawn” and wondering what does that mean. Well, it’s the title of an artwork I created, for an online open call. The theme was Homeless. When I started brainstorming ideas, I drew people sitting directly in front of graffiti covered brick walls. However, before this idea…
