Merry new year people! Now let me tell you something that happened last year!! Sunday 20th December 2015, saw the return of the ‘Phing Thing’ at the Ben Oakley Gallery in Greenwich London. Over 30 artist took part, including myself in a charity auction for St Christopher’s Hospice.
We all customised the Phing Thing model and if you can’t tell what mine is, then allow me to tell you. It’s been transformed into a Tiger!Can you hear it Rooaaar!?
Hope Santa was kind to you all and your New Year brings you lots of joy!
I’ve been taking part in Inktober lately, but I haven’t been doing it everyday. Mainly because I don’t want the pressure of producing something just because I feel I should. So I’m just doing a drawing when I can and I’m really enjoying it. Below are 4 images of what I have inked so far.
The above photos are a few images from a 3 day live painting session. All in aid of a bit of exposure for the new Hilton Hotel near Bankside. Sat at a corner on Southwark street near London Bridge for 11 hours in total, a completely different work environment then usual, but I completed a canvas that depicts the new building and a massive fox…. ‘A FOX? Why is there a fox?’
OH! I’m glad you asked. Well it is a fox themed hotel, and apparently the story goes that the fox was there first customer! As when they were building this new hotel, a fox was found sleeping inside.
Hey Bloggers! I’ve not posted much for a while as I’ve been busy building something potentially exciting! I am now a director of my own company!YAY!
www.artthief.co.uk is an online gallery that finds and curates some of the best art around at affordable prices. Co founded by me and my buddy our aim is to promote and sell high quality Giclee prints by both established and upcoming artists with the idea to create a place where the majority of the profits go to the artist and not the gallery. Sounds pretty exciting right!? Well we launched yesterday, which means we are live today… What are you waiting for? Go and check it out! Maybe buy a print or two? 😉 We are also on social media – who isn’t these days hey! FACEBOOKTwitterINSTAGRAMPinterest I think that covers the lot! Would be great to see you on these. We have a growing rogues gallery of artists and artwork, a perfect excuse to keep a sharp eye on those outlets to stay up to date with new and exciting art, exclusively commissioned prints, artist interviews and news about Art Thief.

From watercolour to spray paint!! With the helpful eye of INKFETISH I present to you my first attempt at a nice tree frog / graffiti / street art / wall mural thing. ‘What was that?…. it looks familiar?‘ … Well you may notice this frog making an appearance in another piece of my artwork, funny enough if you click this link —> THIRSTY! You may just see it again! Was it a success? I’d like to think so besides from the aching hand, which never occurred to me would happen… Looks easier then it is, is a phrase I will attach to this experience. Was it fun? Yes, loads, lots and lots.
