I recently had the pleasure of creating the artwork for the cover of The Long Strung Creatures new album. The CD is titled 'North End Beach' on the Isle of Iona, which is the place that inspired the title track. It's available to buy from their website and also download on YouTube Music, Spotify & Amazon.
One of my recent projects has been to design the beer labels for Cumbrian Legendary Ales in Hawkshead. I really enjoyed working on this collaboration with them. They are a great team and also own The Kirkstile Inn near Loweswater which has amazing views of Mellbreak from the beer garden. Photos by Mike Andrew Photography.
October exhibition at The Gather in Ennerdale
Throughout October there is an exhibition of original paintings on display at The Gather in Ennerdale. The Gather sell a selection of my cards and there are some mini original paintings available in their gift shop downstairs and some larger paintings available from their gallery space upstairs. It's a great place to enjoy a cuppa and piece of cake.
On Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd August, I will be taking part in Ilkley Art Show 2019. I will be exihibiting a selection of landscapes from my recent trip to Scotland along with some from the Lake District, Wales and Yorkshire.
This art show is in its 20th year and there will be over 300 works of art by 40 artists at the show.
It should be a great day out and I am looking forward to taking part this year.
