This is it! The official countdown to the big event, it's been quite a journey and quite the challenge to not journal it through my blog since I haven't posted any artwork. I did this purely because I want every piece at the exhibition to be new and exciting for the viewer but they'll all be getting posted here afterwards so if you miss the show don't worry (that isn't an excuse not to go though).
With three different artists with three different styles this is a show that is guaranteed to blow your brains. So come down and have a drink, a look about and a conversation with some happy folk.
Cheers and take care,

Held at The Sanctuary Art Space
Hope to see you all there!
I had the phenomenal opportunity to sell some my work in Blackwells art store in the the centre of Newcastle. It may have just been the one piece but it again sold almost instantly and I'm now currently working on others of a similar feel that I think may prove to be great sellers, heres hoping!
I also entered the design into a T-shirt competition but unfortunately didn't even come close, what do they know right!
Anyway, the rest are framed up and trying to find good welcome homes so spread the word.
An exhibition showcasing the talents of local artists gave me my first experience exhibiting my work and selling it. With three pieces on display and all three selling within the first 2 hours of the event I couldn't of asked for a better start. This also gave me the opportunity to see how others approach their own artwork which can only benefit someone who intends to make a living this way.
