Art-committed

I’ve strayed away from my blog for far too long. Getting myself back on track, this week I made an early visit to the Victoria and Albert museum in South Kensington; for a spot of mint tea in their exquisite café and to enjoy their vast collection of treasured art. The tearoom as always wrapped…

Belated Halloween

It’s that time for bucket load of candy corns,Trick or treat stash’s, dressing up scarily cute or creepingly horrifying. Halloween may be over but I’m still in the mood for spooks and discounted chocolate. For the occasion I created three Halloween mandalas; a spider web, a bat cave and a crooked fence. Each very different…

Tate, Thames, Tea

Another week, another gallery. This week I was greeted by the large scale walls of an old power station, The Tate Modern. The prominent landmark is located in a prime photography hotspot, Southbank, a stone’s throw walk away from London Bridge station. The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its grey toned architecture to…

Mad about Liberty London

Today, I paid a touristy visit to Liberty. Located on the corner of Regent Street. The unmissable department store is clear as a bell with its Tudor-mock frontage. I entered the large treasure box through the main entrance, welcomed by colourful blooms. Once inside I was immediately enveloped by the sweet aroma of the beauty…

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 is for an open call held by Movenpick. They invited illustrators to design a slim can packaging for their new coffee lemonade range. That will soon grind…

With the use of Instagram and the hashtag #LibertyOpenCall they’re scouting unique talent based in the UK. I’d be over the moon…

Artists were asked to design a premium paper bag, inspired by one of the seven iconic cities listed in the brief; Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul, Brisbane, Auckland and Dubai. My city of choice…

Early Scares to Exciting Submissions

I wasn’t planning to work on scary projects a month before Halloween. But here’s a second competition. This submission was for the horror T.V series Lore. The new series has six episodes all based on real-life horrifying stories. As a part of the competition you were asked to re-create the title in unique, hair-raising ways,…

Halloween: He’s Coming Home

Do you like scary movies? I for one don’t. My latest and scariest submission is for the sequel movie Halloween. I bravely watched the trailer a number of times, back and forth for ideas. With the volume down, of course, I’m not daring enough to keep it up. No matter how many times I watched…

Her Theory

For the past few days I’ve busy working on two competition entries; the first theme homelessness and the second “I am a women, this is my legacy”. When I heard about the second competition, I was keen to enter it. My drawing board was overflowing with rough, sketched ideas. That I kept revising over and…
