As part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail – I have had the pleasure of starting a large drawing inside a freshly wallpapered house.  The piece is an organic development – mainly unplanned and consisting largely of floral forms.  The drawing is due to be completed next weekend and will be open for public viewing on Sunday the 10th of July where I will be continuing the work and throughout the next week until Sunday the 17th July.  Here are a few images of the work completed so far.

The work will be the starting point of a new series of pieces considering the impact of bees on the environment, their sophisticated methods of communication and navigation, concerns about their dwindling numbers and the catastrophic effects on the planet should they disappear completely.

By chance today I met a beekeeper who has invited me to don a beekeepers suit and gain some first hand experience visiting the hive – looking forward to recording some sound and video to influence the work

This thursday at 6:30 pm we will be opening the doors of SORTED london’s exhibition featuring 10 artists and illustrators. I will be showing 5 original pieces of work 4 of which have not been on show before.

To go with these pieces I will be launching 3 giclee prints of the work on display.  The new prints are Metamorphosis, Sunlight and Coma, the original of which sold through Art Republic. It would be great to see you at the exhibition which runs daily 10am-8:30pm until the 15th of June at East Gallery, Brick Lane – full details

I will also be showing work at 3 other shows this month,

Old Boots New Laces, which opens at the Vibe Bar Gallery on the 17th June
Modern Vices – opens 23rd June  London Miles Gallery, 65 Hanbury Street
Picture Show – East 17 Art House 25th June

Decided not to work too much into this, there was enough rose leaf and enough suggestion of the overall form to leave the outer pencil marks to describe the shape.  Again this piece is drawn from a reference image and has marked a departure from the automatic process, the leaves and foliage are all drawn from memory / free although I have been making studies inbetween large pieces.

This piece is worked in brown havana ink with blue waterman ink, tea and water on stretched bockingford watercolour paper.Rose - finished image
