October has seen a flood or illustration commissions for me so, for a change from my usual blog I thought I’d share some with you.
At the start of the month I was approached by Rochdale shopping centre to create some crafty creatures to celebrate Bonfire Night. Here’s a fearful Fawkes and a adorable little lady munching on her toffee apple to wet your appetite before I run the kids activity this weekend.
Mid October saw spiders crawling up and down the woodwork during Touchstones ‘Tree-tastic Family Fun Day’. Little fingers made scary spiders as we transformed old milk bottle tops into shiny shimmering spiders ready to decorate houses for Halloween.
By the end of October it was back to the drawing board as I completed a commission to celebrate the annual Big Draw for Oldham Art Gallery. I designed and created an eight meter townscape of Oldham past and present ready for kids to colour and doodle.
The community’s contributions during October’s closing weekend brought a vibrant flourish to the final days of the month.
