Original Art as business cards

Whilst on holiday I meet an artist who drew me his business card and that left an impression on me that no other business card has done before.

So I made some ATC cards (artists trading cards). This is a great way of exchanging your details in a memorable way. ATC cards are an established trading system where you can build a small folder of works. They are a little bigger that a business card measuring 2.5″ by 3.5″.

I also made some blanks to make whilst out sketching for that personal touch.  So I have now some lovely ready made cards for when there time is short and some when opportunity to get my art out there with improvised sketch.

 

Edgeland project: Shipping [part one]

This is concept work for a larger volume of prints that is in development.  The focus of this  series [Shipping] is exploring the life span of shipping containers.  Alan Coward and Sons Ltd hire containers for storage, welfare units (for site construction) or converted into homes, garages and office giving them a second life.  It is business that is very much part the Edgeland landscape of Avonmouth in Bristol.
