Infohackit Lancaster: Communicating Science with Infographics

Infohackit is a hackathon style event which invites Designers, Researchers and PHD students to collaborate and create compelling infographics, all within a timed 12 hour period. Having taken part in the Manchester Infohackit last year, I was excited to hear the event was making a return to the North West and I’d get to join in the fun all over again!

Collab Nation Experiment 5 Exhibition

Collab Nation is a collaborative art project featuring international artists, illustrators & doodlers from all backgrounds.

Each artist taking part starts a drawing and then posts it on to another artist to add to. This continues until 4 artists in total have collaborated on a drawing, a process which produces exciting works of art and sometimes brilliantly unpredictable results.

#TwitterArtExhibit 2018

The #TwitterArtExhibit is an annual exhibition which invites artists of all skill levels from across the world to donate an original piece of post card sized artwork to raise funds for an elected charity in the host country.

Here’s my submission (above) which was created using watercolours, posca paint pens and a bit of collaging. I usually struggle with watercolours but after watching some YouTube tutorials and experimenting with layering, I found a technique that worked and ended up having fun with it.

The Exhibit runs from April 7 to April 29 at the Strathnairn Arts Gallery in Canberra, Australia. The elected charity for this year’s show is the Pegasus Riding for the Disabled of the ACT Inc.

As the exhibition name suggests, Twitter plays a big part in the event so if you can’t make it in person, head over to @twitrartexhibit where the admins are sharing artworks and photos from the event.

Ymuno Festival 2016

I had the pleasure of painting at Ymuno Festival last weekend with the awesome Happy Medium crew – Mr Kobo, Merecoincidence, Topher and Kabi Jedhagen.

The vibrant little festival was held in a pretty meadow in North Wales. The happy atmosphere and good company in amongst the picturesque surroundings was just what I needed to recharge after a busy week in the studio. The whole day was a blast and I love how our collab wall turned out!

Love Me / Love Me Not (LHR) Exhibition

I’ll have a new piece of work in Gresty’s Love Me / Love Me Not (LHR) Group Exhibition opening tomorrow night (11/9) at The Lauriston in Hackney.

The exhibition showcases works by a diverse group of 14 different artists, each working to the open brief “Love Me / Love Me Not”. This’ll be the third LHR Exhibition I’ve taken part in and I’ve had a lot of fun with the themes so far! It’s always interesting to see how the other artists have interpreted things too.
