To mark World Mental Health Day I'm releasing these brand new A4 posters of my own personal metaphor for mental illness, the Blackworm. There is no charge so feel free to print and use them as you wish. I'm really interested to see whether you frame it, paste it up or just use it as a wallpaper on your phone so let me know by tagging me on Instagram or Twitter using @korporate
You could only get one of these if you were an existing Korp customer
Last weekend 13 Korpworm paste ups appeared all over Southsea so we ran a little competition for you to win some art if you could find and share at least 8 of them. Here are some of the best entries...

These photos came up on my Facebook feed today, they are from a free art event in Gloucester last year as part of the Gloucester Paint Jam.
Let's start the weekend with a giveaway. All you have to do is share the image below on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Don't forget I need to know you've shared it so tag me in the post by using @korporate on Instagram and Twitter or Kaine Kulczak/KorporateArt on Facebook.
Winner will be announced Sunday afternoon.
I've always wondered what kind of people find the free art I leave around Peterborough so as part of an experiment I asked my finders to post a selfie with their free art (now known as a fafie). As a thank you for posting a fafie I would drop another piece of free art the following day. This has been going on for seven days now and I thought you might like to see the photos.
The first drop was in a coffee shop in Hampton, Peterborough. A couple of hours later it was picked up and the very first fafie was posted on Facebook.
The second drop was in Yaxley just south of Peterborough and was picked up by a couple of passers by who posted their fafie on Instagram.
Drop 3 was made quite late at night in Peterborough City Centre. It was picked up the following day and posted on Instagram again.
It was another late drop on day 4, this time in Bretton Centre. My favourite part about this drop was spotting the finder taking the artwork just as I was about to drive off.
Day 5 had me worried because despite giving a great clue to the whereabouts in the photo it was hours before I was able to find a fafie for it.
Day 6 was another treat when I got to spot a finder not only taking the art but also taking the fafie (well taking a pic of her dog with it).
On the 7th successive day as cardboard and ink supplies began running low I started to question what I'd let myself in for. I hadn't anticipated so many people would be happy to take a fafie for me. Dropped in Orton Waterville while I ate at The Windmill, one minute it was there, the next minute it was gone. Hours later it appeared on Instagram.
Big thanks to everyone that's posted fafies so far, long may it continue. If you are up for hunting for free art then follow me for clues.
Quickly following on from the previous Korpworm give-away is another great opportunity to get some free art. All you have to do to enter is go to my Facebook page and hit like on the picture...of course sharing is appreciated but not essential.
This piece is a multi layer stencil originally cut for the Paper Bag Art Project run by My Dog Sighs back in 2008 but the stencil lasted well so I was able to get a couple of sprays out of it. This is my really early work for anyone interested in getting hold of some retro Korp.
It also features a little nudity.
Head over to my Facebook page to get a chance to win these two loved up Korpworms.
Originally one single piece of art these two worms have but cut in two and framed. Something I do with a lot of my work but don't always tell.
*Everyone who buys art directly from me gets some of these totally unique hand-drawn stickers for free.
