Ok now I know I start a lot of my posts with "I am so excited" but there is a lot for me to be excited about in my little world of Belle & her bunny Boo !
Today I get to blog about some very tiny Belle & Boo and some very LARGE BELLE & BOO
Here are 3 original pen and ink drawings I have just finished for an up and coming exhibition called 'TINY' at the LA based Gallery Meltdown. The exhibition opens on April 10th & the public will be provided with magnifying glasses to view the art works.
I will show the pieces in more detail once the exhibition is open, they are just 1.5" by 2" cute!
Now for the BIG stuff. You can now buy A1 and A2 size Belle & Boo prints, which I think is something to shout about.
Firstly the very chic guys over at 1973 have printed 2 different, A1 limited edition screen prints. Thats 594 x 841 mm -- 23.4 x 33.1 inches of Belle & Boo for your wall.
They have chosen Evie's Flowers
& simplified 'Belle Fly's a Kite'
Mine are at the framers as I type, I think they make a stunning pair. I find it easier to write that as somehow the screen printing process has removed me from the image & I can really enjoy them. Don't get me wrong I love what I do and I know if I walked into a shop & saw one of my images but it was done by someone else I would be the first to buy it, but I find it very hard too put my own work up on the wall. Does anyone else have the same problem? I have friends that hang their own work all around their homes and I think it is brilliant, it is not a modesty thing it just doesn't feel quite right ?
Anyway back to LARGE prints, we also have a new Limited Edition A2 Fine Art Giclee print available in our shops here & here. I did this art work when I was in Sydney for a very cool children's magazine in Hong Kong called Donut.
I took this classic Fairy advert as the starting point for my inspiration
& I am really pleased with the out come it makes me smile.
The edition is limited to just 100 they are signed & numbered by me & 10% of the price will be donated to Unicef's Haiti Earthquake Children's Appeal making them extra scrummy :)
