Just a quick update to say that you can now purchase these beautiful A3 Giclee prints of my skulls for £25 each, unframed and if you buy all 6 you get one free :). They are printed on Matt Poster by a great little company in Essex called dStudio.


There will also be some blank greetings cards available shortly, so as soon as I have shots of those I will post them.


Happy Sunday everyone!


Love

The second new piece of work I presented to the world this week is another skull. This one has been done specifically for MK50 which happens next year. As the name suggests, 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of good old Milton Keynes, my home town. There will be lots of events and celebrations happening throughout next year to mark the momentous occasion including a touring exhibition organised by Maker-Artists of Milton Keynes. You can find our more about them on Facebook by searching for @makerartistsMK.


For those that have grown up in the town, the red balloons will make more sense. For those that didn't and don't remember the adverts, then I will explain: In the 1980s when MK was at the height of its growth period and the Tory government was pushing home ownership and aspiration, an advert was produced to raise awareness of the new city. It followed a young boy and his red balloon; he and his balloon got on a bus and travelled through the old and new areas of the city, finally ending up at what is now the National Bowl where there were thousands more people all with red balloons. At the end of the advert, they all released them into the sky. Heart warming eh? ;)


Anyway, I will post more information next year about where the exhibition will be visiting, so if you live in the area or will be coming to see MK then check back shortly. In the meantime, I hope you have a memorable Winter Solstice/Christmas and New Year, and lets hope 2017 is less of a shit show than 2016 proved to be!
