A few weeks ago in the early hours of the morning London was treated to a blanket of fog, I had to jump at the chance of documenting this weather as I find fog so atmospheric and cinematic, it leaves the usual streets with an air of otherworldly mystery as the people appear out of thin air and buildings blend into nothing. It makes you wonder what is beyond the veil.
Something I have been working on behind the scenes is a print shop and I am excited to announce the shop is finally live! The Gentle Giant shop has prints available in both illustrations and photography. The shop will be updated when I see fit with new illustration and photography series available including some of my recent projects. The prints look gorgeous if I do say so myself and ship worldwide as well as being printed from a carbon neutral printing service here in London with 100% recycled packaging. If you would like to have a gawk at the shop you can do so by following the link below or in the “Shop” Tab on the Navigation menu and if you would like to buy a print it would be greatly appreciated.
The final collection of images for this weeks El Anatsui kick about. For this bunch I popped the artwork into an art placer app for scale and grandiose.
Some more mosaic tapestries created from tinfoil leftover from a steak pie and some coloured markers for this weeks El Anatsui Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom.
This weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom is the incandescent tapestries of El Anatsui. What you are looking at here is the tinfoil leftover from a steak pie, coloured with multicolored markers, photographed, warped and collaged together in photoshop to mimic El Anatsui’s illuminating repurposed sculptures.
A fourth batch of impressionistic images created inspired by the foliage and November blues. Paying close attention to how the treetops were once cut into stumps but now have exploded into speckled oblong shapes as the sky bleeds through the leaves that have fallen.
A third assortment of images created from the impressionism of the vivd blues, yellows and oranges of this time of year. Inspired a great deal by the wondrous paintings of Monet.
A second set of images revolving around the foliage and skies of November. Revisiting these areas the treetops are starting to get more barren with the speckled sky peeping through more as Winter creeps forward.
An impressionistic series exploring the crisp blue skies in November, when the speckled burnt umber and yellow leaves start to fall and bleed into the skyline.
The third and final cluster of images created in response to JMW Turner’s Vesuvius in Eruption. Leaning into what the photograph was telling this bunch took a different turn to its predecessors.
