Teacup window vinyl

I created a city scape for Teacup on Thomas Streets kitchen windows. Purveyors of extremely tasty cakes, pies, home made food, loose leaf tea and coffee, it is well worth popping in to fill that little empty hole in your belly. They now have a liquor licence and a wonderful  ’Suppa and Cuppa’ evening menu. I have worked with Teacup on Thomas Street for a number of years now creating one off bespoke illustrations, designs and objects for their adventures. My illustrations feature on the menus and walls of their pop up shops and hopefully there will be further illustrations all over the place in the future.

Hidden Forest Mural

Over the past two weeks I have been busy painting and installing a new mural in the Northern Quartre, Manchester. The forest mural is situated along Thomas Street, behind the metal broom and shovel statue on the NCP carpark. You wouldn’t notice it if you went directly past it but if you looked down the bank.. there it is! Spread over 21 boards it depicts a hidden forest in an attempt to brighten up the otherwise dark and gloomy area.

Much thanks goes out to Claire Cousins, my lovely new intern for all the painty fun times, Islington Mill for letting me paint the mural in the gallery space, Tommy from City Co for the support and positive attitude, Kev Moore from Workroom Industries and Jermyn from One69a for the help on the install, bit of man power goes a long long way… and the Northern Green Quarter for the opportunity!

Here’s a little thing i put together so you can see the scale of the piece..
