Raven Haired Redux

Decided to revisit an old friend and breath some new life into her for the W.O.W project. Thought it would be nice to give it an African twist and get it up and out there. I also quite enjoyed the process of seeing how my style has moved on slightly since I made the original back in 2008.

Here’s the new African version.

And the Original ‘Raven Haired’.

Wide Open Walls – An Art Safari

Busy busy yet again and as a result my bloggage hasn’t been getting the care and attention it needs, poor bloggage. Still got a load of photos I need to sort out and upload to my flickr, more video footage I need to put together and if you haven’t noticed already, my website has been given a total redesign thanks to rndm.net which STILL needs more content and general ‘stuff’ doing. I’m hoping to start selling some very limited quality prints of some of my photography as well as some very affordable doodles, but all in good time. For something else is happening right now that is priority number 1, Wide Open Walls.

If you’ve been following the blog or my Twitter for some time you’ll know about this already but if you don’t (and you should), in a weeks time I’m flying out to The Gambia to transform the village of Kubuneh with spray paint in the hope of encouraging tourism to help with the poverty problems that the people over their struggle with on a daily basis. I’ve been curating the project alongside organiser Lawrence Williams of the Makasutu Culture forest and managed to twist the arm of 7 other artists who are also on board and ready to paint over a 2 week period.

The artists are Eine, Logan Hicks, Lucy McLauchlan, Xenx, Mysterious Al and Broken Crow, need I say more? For more info and regular updates on the progress of the project PLEASE subscribe to the W.O.W blog and Facebook page and help spread the word about this incredible project. We really need everyones help on getting behind this so please tell your friends, spread the word and help the W.O.W project really get out there.

I’ll be updating this blog AND the W.O.W blog as often as I can whilst we’re out there to keep you all updated on how it’s going and include you as much as we can on the journey.
