A few Friday links

   black green leather wallet marble lining notesblack green leather wallet marble lining coinsblack green leather wallet marble lining frontI’ve had a productive few days, further refining the construction for my pop coin wallet.

The one above has a marbled, book endpaper style lining I found at Harrogate Knit and Stitch in November 2013. Many different fabric sellers were there, I also spotted a stand promoting Bradford Textile Archive a part of Bradford College, which looks interesting.

I have been exploring my new home city of Bristol by pursuing my interests: record shops (recent discoveries to follow) fabric shops, cinemas and galleries.

As for fabrics, poppypatchwork.co.uk have a wide range of fabrics on offer and are based in nearby Westbury-on-Trym.

Wanted Records in St. Nicholas Market is great for vinyl, think I’ll be back there soon!

New illustration for Hyde Park Picture House programme ad

greggmcdonald HPPH CMYKI recently reworked my flyer artwork into a full colour advert for the new Hyde Park Picture House programme – click here to download a digital version. As usual, the Picture House has a great run of films coming up, but I’m especially excited about the ‘Sign Painters’ film, part of Leeds International Film Festival. I have the accompanying book and there’s so much beautiful modern day hand painted sign work in there. Just a shame it’s on at the same time as Andy Votel’s Klekspolitation at Belgrave Music Hall… it’s a tough choice!
