Hey pups - @big_fat_greekmother is coming to @hitchindrawmore on Monday. She’s bringing Bambos who will show us all the manly poses and stuff he can do. See you there! #hitchin #drawmore
Only 2 places left on my course at @hopeanelvis, come and join us, and bring a friend! It’s always a lovely day with those guys; they know all about making nice vibes, food and most importantly ART.
Very grateful to have 2 pictures in @thenewcraftsmen new setup in spite of most of the bits I made getting lost, that’s so nice - thanks guys. It looks so great!
Have you booked on to my course at @hopeandelvis? Come and join me for a day exploring colour and collage. You should go and follow those guys even if you can’t make it.
Happy New Year comrades! Wishing you all health and happiness for the coming year
@makemudpress and @jessicajanecharleston open studios today if you’re anywhere near Bow. This is an illustration Jess made for a piece of writing I did which is all about having a massive vagina 💅
This week DPD lost 7 of my collages, I’d sent them next day recorded and they lost them, they’re just gone. It’s taken me a couple of days to be zen enough to get back to work and now I’m really behind. I also was right up to the deadline completing them so didn’t scan them - this is the only record I have. That’s sad eh? I thought I was making collage but in fact I was making durational performance art - I spent weeks making elaborate images which I then handed over to a bloke, my performance collaborator, who probably just slung them in a hedge or something. #sothatsgood #anewdirection
If you get over to @hadleypapergoods there’s a competition on to name our robot friend - and today is the last day to enter! There’s a box of greeting cards to win. Go give me some names please!
Head over to @thenewcraftsmen to see some pictures and hear a little about my inspirations at this time of year. Im wearing the same top as in my last picture, I do take it off sometimes - usually for my monthly bath.
A client didn’t want this necklace in their collage . . . Which is a shame cos it’s the best damn thing I ever made. Also - who else had one of those millennium mullet sort of cuts? Looking at this picture, I think I might be ready for a mullet again #earlyadopter #doitbeforeitscool
Lovely coverage in House and Garden, all about my Christmas capers over at @thenewcraftsmen thank you @houseandgardenuk! #collage #thoughtfulgifts
A little keepsake of a loved one. Found photos supplied by @sevensyard7 . Excellent glasses - models own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #collage #drawing
Oh my gosh, I’ve just found out that Kit Kemp’s pop-up featuring my folk collages is on until January! I just presumed I missed it because I’m a country mouse now and I just miss everything. So I’m going to go and visit them and you should too it’s at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. See you there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #chelseadesigncentre #collage #interiors
I just made this and now I’m going the flip to bed. I hardly ever just squeeze out a quick pic of an evening but tonight I reaaallly had so many things to do and I just naffed them all off to make something for myself, so that was nice ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #illustrator #collage #drawing
New, slightly blush pink handmade paper is spurring me on to many shades of green! #collage #drawing #colourcolourgreen
Did you see my Hermits Bothy print in Country Living!? . . . No, me either, but I knew it was there somewhere so I kept looking and suddenly there it was! Hooray! Nice to be a part of such a beautifully styled shoot. If you listen carefully on the video you will hear the soundtrack to my life at the moment: the flat tone of a toddler saying ‘no’
One of my collages made it in to ES Magazine, under the title The New Bohemian no less - how wonderful. And the collages from the exhibition at @thenewcraftsmen all sold out and the ones I made to replace them have sold before they've even got up on the wall. Whoop! . Too many good things. . Something bad has to happen now right? I'm fully expecting to accidentally slice my hand off while opening a tin of mandarin segments, or maybe next time I go to the loo my insides will just fall out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #collage #papercut #paperart #folk #folkart #wearethemakers
THIS IS ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA! !Please follow @hitchindrawmore! I found out recently that every time I tag all those folks in a post to remind them about Draw More nights this app just doesn’t tell them! I despair, I really do. What’s the flipping point? In some ways I’m really disappointed that I've been working away and this app has decided to squash my efforts at building a small community and in some ways I’m so chuffed that the people who have come have come without being reminded each time - what a bunch of heroes. Well anyway, I’ve made a separate Draw More account that will be run by @whatctdid and myself so please follow if you are interested and that will provide Instagram with another opportunity to exclude the posts from your feed 😐👍 #letstakethisfriendshipoffline #bigbrother #algorithm #algorithmwoes
I'm reading a bawdy poem at this on Wednesday night. Come along! Actually it's probably more crass than bawdy. Come along! It has swear words and the word vagina, and labia . . . and arse. Come along! And follow @makemudpress and @jessicajanecharleston too for more info. Grand.
