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.

The next market I’m taking part in is Urban Makers East, on April 23rd at Mile End Ecology Pavilion 11 – 5pm. Come and say hi if you’re around!

Granny

HOLLIE_GRANDMA

I was really touched to be asked to complete this commission, celebrating three generations 💗 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. 

The Mark Makers

I’m really excited to announce that I will be leading a new evening drawing workshop popping up in different fun venues across London. The workshop is called ‘The Mark Makers’ and will be ran by myself and Becky Noy.

The aim is to make the workshop fun, and non-stuffy, and a fun opportunity to spend the evening drawing and learning, using still life.  We want to give a new way of interpreting the traditional medium of still life, that you perhaps were forced to do at school, but incorporating exciting props, and fun exercises to help develop drawing skills. The ticket for the event will include a glass of booze, and a mini curated kit of materials to take away to get you drawing at home.

Becky, who has a background in making and sourcing props will spend time building an exciting modern still life which serves as a unique focal point as well as a drawing focus. While I will guide you through the workshop and the steps needed to work on and develop drawing skills and create your own work.

You will hopefully have a super fun evening, and leave with some great original artwork to take away, as well as a kit of materials and illustrated tips sheets for drawing at home and a thirst to learn more. The classes are great for all skill sets, whether you’re a master mark maker or a total beginner.

Our very first workshop is taking place at Lock Studios, in Haggerston. On Tuesday the 15th of March. (Lock Studios, UNIT 1, 66-68 De Beauvoir Cresent, London N1 5SB; a short walk away from Haggerston overground station…) running from 7.30-9.30pm. To book tickets please visit this link: http://www.themarkmakers.com/product/the-mark-makers-lock-studios

We also have an event in South London on April 26th 2016, at the nines Peckham. (Unit 9A Copeland Park, 133 Copeland Rd, London SE15 3SN) Which also runs from 7.30-9.30pm. Tickets will be onside soon at www.themarkmakers.com

We’re really excited about the project and it would mean a lot if you wanted to be involved! Thanks in advance!
