Gyllyngdune Gardens lost illustration

I came across this illustration for an event at Gyllyngdune Gardens, Falmouth and is an example of a ‘lost’ illustration – done for an event that, in the end, didn’t materialise. This can happen occasionally and you’re left with a piece of work nobody sees, hidden away in the portfolio. It’s a shame when it’s a piece you like. But hey-ho, the client paid of course (the lovely Trifle Gathering Productions), and the event went on the following year – and I got to design the poster again!

… and this was the one we used the following year…

Miracle Theatre Cornwall, signwriting, fairground sign

A busy few days working for Miracle Theatre, Cornwall and their winter show “Doctor Livingstone, I presume?”  It’s one of those ‘end of the pier’, fairground, ‘pop your head through a hole and have your picture taken’ things. (What are they called?) If anyone can come up with a name I’d be most grateful. Five days and late nights of illustration, tracing, painting, masking, building, spraying and varnishing later and we had our bespoke ‘stick your head through a hole…’ thing finished and ready for the Miracle Theatre tour of Cornwall. www.miracletheatre.co.uk
