New work, new characters

I've been making these ones for a while, but have added 5 more to the collection.

The characters are taken from old children's books, and the background is a mix of painted and unpainted cardboard fruit box tiles.

They're mounted on boxes salvaged from an art store, that used to hold paint tubes. They make a great base, giving the work a bit more depth on the wall, and they're so light too. They're ready to hang, with a red hemp loop on the back.

Addison Road Night Markets, Saturday 6 February

Addison Road Centre is a fantastic community space, home to Reverse Garbage, The Bower, MAD Gallery and lots more community organisations.

Took part in their makers market last Saturday night. There were lots of handmade goodies, yummy Ethiopian and Japanese food, home baked cakes, Chai and free music performances from Lolo Lovina, Toy Death, a local choir plus Radio Skidrow dj'ed.

The rainy weather meant we set up in the hall rather than on the green, but it didn't keep people away. Here's a shot of the crowd chilling out to Lolo Lovina (although they were up and dancing at times too!)

Thanks for a fun night Addison Road Centre!
