Vittles newsletter

A few illustrations I've done for Vittles. A turnip for Coco Kwok's recipes (2.1), Apocalypse supermarket for 'The Sounds of the Apocalypse by George Reynolds (6.1) and a packet of delicious tempura seaweed for a list of East Asian supermarket treats (3.2). Jonathan Nunn set up Vittles, a new food writing newsletter in this strange time, supporting food creatives. You can support on their Patreon. Thanks to Jonathan for commissioning me to do these, like so many I'm facing a lot of uncertainty with projects over the next few months.

The Bootle Embroidery

I've sent off The Bootle Embroidery back to Bootle Library to receive it's final touches and also get a good iron! I've been working with Our Human Library since September 2018 on a series of workshops. The first was an introduction to embroidery, the second encouraging the Stitch Club to create embroideries inspired by Bootle itself and the third and final workshop was more embroidery and discussing how to pull together the embroideries as a final piece. I embroidered the library and also a portrait of Martin who was an important part of the Our Human Library community and sadly passed away last summer. The Stitch Club runs every fortnight at Bootle Library and is hosted by Our Human Library.

Victoria Line Embroideries

Most of my work is based on walking and what I see. I don't know if my day job this year has meant that I'm outdoors less and more eager to get home but I observe more on transport. These two embroideries show other commuters on the Victoria Line (I do have a preference for getting the train back home though...). From the top 'King's Cross to Brixton' and 'Pug on the Victoria Line'.

Some photographs of my two artworks 'King's Cross to Brixton' and 'Pug on the Victoria Line' at the Society for Embroidered Work exhibition at The Clerkenwell Gallery. Have a look on their website for more information on the artists involved.
