Although these works are part of my on-going project ‘Musicians, Writers & Philosophers’  I feel this fellow deserves his own post. No introduction needed…

Stall of Artwork at Camden Market

Sunbathing in Blue

So, after fighting with my printer, delivery times, my sanity and the need to sleep I’ve realized/decided that I will be ready to go on the market this weekend after all!

Camden Lock Market - West Yard

Camden Lock Market – West Yard

That’s Camden Market (probably in the West Yard) where, on Saturday, I’ll be sitting behind a stall, talking to my guitar, to passers by, and hopefully some friends, drinking tea and maybe noting some interest in my artwork from the madding Christmas crowd. It is due to be sunny which, at highs of 5 degrees, is a blessing!

Given some of the problems stated above, most of my cards (from the last post) will actually be ready for next weekend so I’m doing some handmade ones for this week (and shall be on the stall if my hands don’t freeze). Most of the other artwork will be prints, paints, drawings and originals in A4 (as I haven’t a way to transport the rest) and a couple of paintings and bits and bobs. See below!

Do come by if you’d like to say hi. I’ve no idea how the day will go and would really like to see some friendly features floating my way.

Well, here goes.
