Sketches for work in progress

Alverton Nursery School in Northallerton
Have commissioned me to do 3 very large murals.

Corridor yr 1 and 2

I have started to sketch out ideas for the
corridor which has a nursery rhyme theme.

The main hall

The main hall has a magical/enchantment theme. So I
am looking at children's narrative - Lion,Witch and Wardrobe,
Snow Queen, Harry Potter, Peter Pan, Where the Wild Things Are,
and The Gruffalo.

I haven't started sketches for the reading area yet (gardens/forests and woods)
Am looking forward to this project.

Shop fronts

Final illustrations (just emailed for approval) for the Shop fronts.

Have scanned and pieced them together..... hope they look okay. Fingers crossed.
Can't wait to see them on the websites!!!

Rosemary Shrager (Ladettes to Ladies) TV Chef unveiled my mural today

Rosemary Shrager unveiled my mural today at the
children's centre at 11am!

Exciting!!! What a lovely lady! 
It was quite emotional and a great day!!

Have worked a lot of late nights and early mornings to get it finished!
The printer delivered it yesterday!
Apparently there should be a write up in the paper too!?
This next week should be a bit easier - only a few more murals to do for the prison!
Also have a few commissions to do for some friends to keep me out of mischief.

It was lovely to meet Rosemary, a lovely lady!

HMP Northallerton kiddies play area - murals in progress!

Have been very busy with marker pens over the weekend!!Here are the backgrounds for the Prison kiddies play area murals!!
These are the theme - Dragons, Princesses and Knights. So have a few characters to add- with humour and funny antics (Dragons providing the flames for a BBQ (spit roast), and maids catching frogs to kiss by the pond).
Still a few insects, ducks, birds and animals to draw....phew!!
Just a meadow and inside the castle walls to do now!! :-)

artwork in progress for Children's Centre mural

I have started the artwork for the Children's Centre mural!! Their Open Day is June 11th and they would like the mural(s) in situ for that day!! Gulp!! So have been frantcially working over the weekend to get as much done as possible.
This is the background for the nursery rhyme "Row, row, row your boat"
Have used marker pens and fresh appealing colours with blending.
I shall add insects, animals, ducks and also some of the kiddies artwork into the piece.
They are going to give me some photographs of the kiddies acting out and singing the
nursery rhymes so I place them in an illustrated boat and perhaps illustrate some of the children as well.
This background is for the nursery rhyme "sleeping bunnies" so will be adding some bunnies, children acting out the rhyme, and also some butterflies, insects!! Again using marker pens and blending the colours to make it appealing.
Think they are looking okay so far!?!?

Work in progress - sketched ideas

I have been sketching ideas for HMP Northallerton Kiddies play area and also for the Children's Centre in Northallerton this weekend.

These are for the children's centre - they want me to illustrate nursery rhymes.
I have sketched these to show how I would create imagery with a mix of photos and illustrations of the children amongst a bold, colourful, graphic background.
Have a meeting tomorrow to discuss what I have come up with so far and then should be starting the preliminary drawings for the artwork asap!!
The Prison want me to create a mural based on the theme Dragons, Princes and Princesses.
Have decided to go for something fun and cartoon style with some humour illustrated in the scenes.

These are two of the scenes... Have a helper too - a girl I know who is interested in Art is doing some drawings in her free time (she is at Allertonshire and asked to help) based on the theme. So I could use some her work incorporated into the mural for a little bit of work experience to help with her Art coursework. It will be ready in the next 4 weeks so will post some more work in progress and also of Sammi's ideas. Could be interesting to see what people think!
