My contribution to the #letterheads weekend was a salute to the Nottingham institution which was the Forest Tavern & the Maze on Mansfield road. It closed down this year and is a sad loss to the #nottingham music scene. Anyone who remembers this place might remember there was an old bare knuckle boxing ring upstairs and I based my sign on a real sign which used to hang in the bar. It always mystified me! #themazenottingham
My first ever #letterheads this weekend at #carterssteamfair took my fippin’ breath away! I can’t remember the last time i was surrounded by so much creative human spirit, talent and kindness. Thank you everyone for making me so at home in this amazing and vibrant community!! And thank you @joby.carter for having us all. #signwritingfestival #alwayshandpaint
Thank you so much to @carterssteamfair and their wonderful crew and families @joby.carter and all the Letterheads for an outstanding weekend of sharing and friendship. Chance to catch up with my pals and family. Loads of laughs and learning and we raised a princely sum for the Alexander Devine Childrens’ Hospice. Joby I’m in awe of you and @hiartzpress no one looks finer in a plastic bag. #letterheads #alwayshandpaint #signpainter
North entrance signs for @bodyandsoulirl at @epfestival a few weeks back.
I had such a ball making these with the magnificent @katiebyrne_art
We had time so decided to do something different.
Handcut raised letters on colourful prismatic background.
Making anything creative generally comes with its own process of enthusiasm, frustration, joy, insecurity, victory, doubt etc. Easy to get lost in, but it was so good to bounce off someone who knows exactly what's going on and laugh or pull you through. Miss Katie has great talent and ideas and is a joy to work with and we bounced off each other nicely, blending ideas and skills into a piece that we were pretty happy with when finished.
Nice little surprise to see them pop with nighttime lighting and a sassy drop shadow.
More collaborations please! 🍏
