I’m in the process of building a new website just for artwork projects I’ve done recently, as I haven’t uploaded anything new for over a year, but in the mean time here are some drawings from a recent project for a band calledLAskA.
Here’s their bio:
Formed in the Autumn of 2012 by British musicians Amy Hiller, Rhys Baker and Stephen Baxter. LAskA’s sound is rooted in electronica, shoegaze and pop. Nocturnal synths and ambient organ drones wash around twisted beats and sub basslines, while hook-laden male/female vocal harmonies ebb dreamily among blissed-out guitar and piano figures.
Their debut EP is available to download or stream for free hereor here:
Poetry and Paint is a project that aims to merge visual art with written word. Carmina has put together an anthology (which includes some of my poems) and the launch for this, as well as an exhibition, will take place on 30 March. Check here for more deets- I'll be performing on the night too!
I illustrated Selina Nwulu's poems in the new Poetry & Paint Anthology. The launch event is on March 30th. Check http://poetryandpaint.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/event-flyer/ for more info. It's near Old Street tube station. Here's the illustration I did, and the flyer below:
I'll be performing at this for International Women's day this Friday. Really looking forward to a night full of dancing, singing, stand up poetry and art exhibitions as well as speaking with the local and global women's rights campaigners who will be there on the night.
The suggested donation is £7 (with £2 concessions) which will go to the local, national and international women's charities Aylesbury Everywomen's Centre, UK Feminista, and Ghashful Scholarship fund in Bangladesh.
These are my photos from another great Word House night. The featured poets were Mark Grist, Sabrina Mahfouz and Emma Jones. They were absolutely awesome. All the headliners also happened to be comedy geniouses. Mark Grist is the poet who got quite a few people might recognise from when this video went a bit viral:
