Espresso Yourself!

I captured mine and my friend Hannah’s joint love of the drink of queens; the espresso martini for her 28th Birthday card this year. Happy Saturday, and enjoy one of these dark and lovely concoctions if you get the chance.

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.

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!

Valentines

anteaterellies_vday

Although I don’t particularly go in for red roses, public meals or displays of affection surrounded by balloons and expectation on the 14th of February, I do like making cards. And this year I got to make a few, to serve the lovely fing of showing love. As well as my babe card which you can still buy on my etsy shop, I was also commissioned to make these little elephants for a really sweet valentines day card. For my own offering, I depicted an anteater cuddling someone’s leg; a sight my valentine and I saw earlier this year at London zoo. There’s no love like an anteater and his leg. I hope your day (and all your days) was full of love.

Really love doing commissions for one friend to another, and this was super special as the original photo I had to work from was just so fun. I used watercolour paints and pencil. alice@alicenyong.com for your commission ideas!
