Huge thanks to all the artists that made it to Korpfest II in the summer. Also big thanks to all the volunteers who contributed their time, it wouldn't happen without you and finally to Eastern Angles for funding the event. If you would like to sponsor Korpfest III on November 30th please get in touch. I'm looking for a primary sponsor of £1,700 and 17 artist sponsors at £100 each.
Check out these photos from the event and scroll down to the bottom for a video that really captures the spirit of the day.

Huge thanks to the fellas at Junk Yard Jam for inviting me up again. You always get a great canvas to work on in a genuine junk yard.
This piece is a nod to Fake Empire, one of my favourite bands.
Had a great time at Bring The Paint 2019 pasting up over 100 Korpworm posters. Huge thanks to Izzy and the gang for organising such a great festival.
Bring The Paint T-Shirt Campaign
I loved the poster so much I decided to put it on a t-shirt. You can pre-order your own t-shirt before 30th June for just £16.99, after that the price goes up to £21.99.
The Ikea tunnel between Hampton and Stanground is the main legal paint spot in Peterborough and up until recently I had never painted there. Glad to finally get up in Peterborough with this little stencil piece.
I've really enjoyed sketching in this small square spiral bound sketchbook. The brown paper is perfect for paintmarkers. Thought you might like to see some of the results.
Yesterday I launched my first ever colouring in competition with a chance to win an urban art bundle. This is open to school age children who must enter the competition through a participating school or arts organisation. It is free to enter and you will get a customised colouring sheet like the one below with your schools name in the banner. For more details click here.
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to paint in my old hometown of Market Deeping as part of the Celebrating Our High Streets initiative. It was a blustery day, dangerously so, so we moved off the high street into an alley full of shops. My board was a little smaller than I was used to so I paced myself in order to fill the whole day with live art. Huge thanks to the organisers for stepping forward and pulling this together at the last minute and for everyone that stopped by to say hello.
As well as my live art there was also free poems being written by Charley Genever and Claire Currie and a stilt walker from Giggle Town Arts to keep the kids amused. Check them out.
