Drawing Dave – The exhibition 10 – 14 May Birmingham

The Drawing Dave exhibition of… well… drawings of Daves… launches tomorrow night (Tuesday 10th May) at Aceface Barbers, Bristol Street, Birmingham.


If you’re in the area go and take a look, there’s a limited edition beer by Two Towers Brewery and drawings by 50 artists and it looks like a great venue. After the exhibition the work will be available to buy via auction with all proceeds going to Pancreatic Cancer UK. You’ll find all the details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/515791541958396/


Here’s what the curator has to say:

“An exhibition of ‘Daves’ drawn by 50 artists to support Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Following the death of the ‘Only Fools and Horses’ star Roger Lloyd Pack in 2014, Pancreatic Cancer UK launched a national fundraiser ‘Call Everyone Dave Day’ inspired by the character that Roger famously played.

As part of this fundraising initiative artist Dan Genders is raising money for the charity by inviting artists, illustrators and celebrities to draw a famous Dave that will be sold via a silent auction. Dan is working with curator, Trevor Pitt, to organise an exhibition of the Dave artwork at the Secret Cellar, which is part of AceFace Barbers on Bristol Street, Birmingham.

The public will be able to view the exhibition at AceFace from 10th to 14th May 2016. Following the exhibition all the artwork will be available to buy via an eBay auction with all the funds going directly the charity.



Everything is going to be ok

cactus emma russell lhr

“Everything is going to be ok” some massive cacti for the group exhibition “The things I think about when I think about thinking” which opens at The Hanbury, N1 on 6th November. It’s a 50 x 70cm print so it’s got lovely thick outlines and even a tiny bit of (whisper it) texture in the yellow.

It’s the last of the LHR shows that Mr Gresty will be curating, he’s done such a great job on these so I’m very pleased to be involved in the last one. Get along to see it from 06.11.15 – 31.01.16

RCA Secret 2015

This year’s Royal College of Art Secret exhibition and sale of work raised nearly £150,000 which goes directly to bursaries for post-grad Fine Art students. The RCA spread the show to Dubai so there were four postcards to make, three for London and one for Dubai. My postcards were all paper cut typography.
