To coincide with World Hepatitis Day on 28th July, Art on A Postcard and Culture Label launched a £10 postcard lottery. Lottery tickets are on sale until 1st September. Tickets offer you a chance to win a postcard sized original artwork by artists including Daisy Emerson, Robbie Porter, Jon Burgeerman, Jake & Dinos Chapman. And me! My print and painting “Dream Painting Blue Indigo” is one of the prizes.

Time has whizzed by and I haven’t yet shared my postcards from this year’s RCA secret. It’s always a great event, the money raised from the sale of cards goes to support the Royal College of Art students and the possibility of scooping up a little piece of work that you love is brilliant!
These are my three cards in acrylic paint, printing ink and pen and ink. Two for the London show, one for the Dubai show. I was thrilled that the buyers from the London show both got in touch.
This year’s RCA Secret postcard show is complete and all the artists’ names have been revealed. Have a look on their website to see all the artists and cards. There are some wonderful pieces of work.
Here are the cards that I made. Pear Woman, Tomato Man and Citrus Woman…
They’re all line drawings on translucent paper over collage.
I hope their new owner enjoys them! I wonder who’s got them?

This is my bit for Mail Me Art 3.
Mail Me Art 3 is a project devised by Darren de Lieto of the Little Chimp Society bringing together mail art from 200 artists, illustrators and other exciting creative people across the world. I’m very pleased and excited to have been selected for it. Each contributor illustrates a C5 envelope on one side and addresses it to Mail Me Art on the other. Then we stamp and send the envelope with the illustration taking its chances out there in the world, left to Royal Mail’s tender mercies! The envelope is the work, not the contents. An exhibition and book of the work follows in July. I absolutely cannot wait to see what the other 199 people have made and how all the work has survived through the mail.
We could each choose whether to leave the envelope empty or put something inside. I put another little bit of work inside as I like the idea of a free gift! It’s a little postcard-sized drawing called Bath Night. Here’s a scan of it:
Now all the postcards are sold to raise money for the Fine Art Student Award Fund, RCA Secret has owned up to who’s who. So we can all confess. And I promise I will stop going on about Secret for a bit! Funny to think someone out there owns the originals of these now, if they sold of course. If you have one I hope you enjoy it.

This is the odd one out, line drawing and painting:
Here are the finished products sporting my illustration for RCA Secret’s 18th birthday show. If you don’t know it, the exhibition is of 2,900 postcard sized artworks at the Royal College of Art, signed only on the reverse, so on sale day collectors buy a work and only discover who it’s by after they’ve purchased it. It’s a fantastic show to see. The postcards are displayed in 10 x 10 grids, the individual works are lovely and en masse they make a beautiful whole.
