Stitch Birthday Party @ The Red Gallery

Hello! I’ve been working with Stitch for a while now, and I’m excited to announce our birthday party plans!

‘On Friday 29th March Stitch is hosting a very special event to celebrate their 2nd birthday: bringing together five of the best nights that London has to offer under one roof, to create one hell of a party and planting a target minimum 10,000 trees with the proceeds. This is partying with a purpose.’

Date: 29th March 2013

Venue: Red Gallery, 1 – 3 Rivington Street, Shoreditch.

‘A percentage of every pound spent at the bar and from ticket sales goes towards planting trees with partner WeForest. WeForest is an international organisation dedicated to sustainable reforestation. Money raised from this event will go towards their tree planting project in Ethiopia which is geared towards stopping soil erosion and empowering single mothers and widows to be self-sufficient and pay for medical care.’

p.s. I should point out that I did not design this poster, which is a shame because it’s very good-looking.

‘Cod Save The Sea’: Illustrating The Rodnik Band for Amelia’s Magazine

Hello! These are fashion illustrations for Amelia’s Magazine. I drew two looks from The Rodnik Band‘s collection for ASOS, entitled ‘Cod Save The Sea‘. The clothes are playful and colourful, but there is substance behind the idea: The collection is inspired by the Environmental Justice Foundation‘s work to end illegal ‘pirate’ fishing.

The feature on Amelia’s Magazine was written by Maria Papadimitriou, and can be found over here. Check it out!

‘Focus on Nature’: A Photography Exhibition by Stitch

Hello! Here’s something for all you Londoners:

I’ve been working with Stitch to help organise a photography competition, called ‘Focus on Nature’. The show will be opening tomorrow, May 15th, on Portobello Road. The gallery will be open from 10am-6pm daily, but there will also be a couple of late night events – if you’d like to attend those, make sure to check out the Facebook event and RSVP!

Stitch is a non-profit organisation that spreads environmental awareness through artistic events. Through a £5 donation for entering the competition, Stitch will be raising funds and awareness for two fantastic organisations, Back2Earth and Butterfly Conservation.

I hope to see you there!

Project Ocean @ Selfridges

Hello!

I’ve been working with Fauna & Flora International to create life-size marine turtle sculptures for Selfridges’ Project Ocean. The sculptures will be exhibited at Selfridges on Friday, May 13th, so head to Oxford Street and check them out! (If you can’t make it, the turtles will be displayed by Guerrilla Science during their creative workshops.)

The two turtles were made entirely from plastic rubbish, and depict two species threatened by marine pollution: The Hawksbill sea turtle and the Olive ridley sea turtle.


The last image shows the underside of the Olive Ridley (I couldn’t resist those polka dots!). More photos after the jump!
