Hand-painted ‘Pirate Tom’ sign

Image
Still on the subject of swashbuckling pirates, here’s a hand-painted flotsam-style sign I made this morning for a client’s son. Painted in gold enamel and acrylic paints on old pine, scrollsaw-cut for that ‘just-washed-onshore-after-that-shipwreck-look’. Commissions available upon request.

Hand-drawn Whitstable icons print

For lovers of ‘The Bubble’, a reminder on the wall of why they keep going back to this lovely north Kent seaside town. Famous for its oysters and Oyster Festival, the Hammer House of Horrors actor Peter Cushing and the brass diving helmet (it was invented here). Whether a beer at ‘The Neppy’ is you bag or a plate of fish and chips on the beach is more your style, there’s sure to be a personal favourite on here. Printed on archival-quality A3 (297mm wide x 420mm high) paper with great lightfastness. Buy one on FolksyOriginal was painted with brush and black Indian ink, plus marker pens.

Design for the Herne Bay Festival kids’ tee shirt

This is a low-res mock-up of my recommendation for the kids’ Herne Bay Festival tee shirt. Looking suitably piratey, the focal point is a burning fire sculpture of a pirate ship which will be featuring at the event.

Herne Bay Festival 2012 commission

Image
I have just met up with a Canterbury City Council (CCC) client and have been asked to come up with a kids’ tee shirt design in one colour for The Herne Bay Festival 2012 in August, so watch this space. I will post up the 1st stage scamps (pencil sketches) here next week. The festival is a 9 day event with music, street theatre,dance, bandstand performances, workshops and entertainment and this year the festival is 20 years old. I hope to incorporate many of the following in the tee shirt design: Pirate & Lantern Parade; a Giant; a Crab Catching Competition; Spitfire/Breitling/Mustang air displays; an Open Air Screening; Science Museum Shows; a Sandcastle competition; a Giant Picnic and Fireworks, so my work is cut out, as they say. Oh, and a Punch and Judy Show, of course.
