Making Marks…

I can’t believe I haven’t shared images of my new project The Mark Makers on here yet. Perhaps because we are having too much fun drawing and making marks across London. You can find out about the project HERE and below are some images from the past two nights. The next one is in One Week’s time, and you can buy tickets from the website.

Birthdays…Birthdays….Birthdays

I’ve been drawing lots of birthday cards, both for my own friends and for people who commission me. I feel like the approach you can take for someone on their birthday ranges loads, and it’s great to experiement. At the top, I painted a cake for my mum, which I was super happy with. If you like cake themed offerings, visit my etsy and check out my TROPICAL CAKE CARD

Above is a card for my friend Jessica Skye, one of my favourite yogis, DJ and all round super woman. Below is a card I was commissioned to make for a birthday. Love the animated faces.

I feel very lucky to be asked to capture such nice moments by people who commission me, and this one was no exception. Here I painted Jaz and her dad in a sweet selfie for his birthday present. I love it, and is also great to see it in situ.

I had the pleasure of taking part in the Crafty Fox Market on Sunday, which is always a super fun day. I was selling my cards, original artworks, and some new NOTEBOOKS, which I’m excited about. It’s actually great to debut new products to a market audience, and I think they went down really well. Fun all round. Look out for the books on my Etsy soon.

Granny

HOLLIE_GRANDMA

I was really touched to be asked to complete this commission, celebrating three generations πŸ’— Hollie was kind enough to give me a little back story behind the commission:

“A little back ground if you want, this was a picture was taken of granny about a year after she fell down some stairs and sustained a huge brain injury that basically changed her life. When she was able to leave the hospital she never returned home and went straight into a care facility where she spent a few months before she passed on the 12th September.

This picture was taken about 1month before she died, She was allowed back to our house on a day visit and we sat in the garden and I painted her nails and ate croissants!”

I really love my job sometimes! Thank you Hollie. alice@alicenyong.com for commission enquiries.Β
