Create for Cross: Radar love

I revisted the dark depths of my Itunes this week to find some inspiration for the” Create for Cross” Exbo and rediscovered a musical gem.
Holland’s own GOLDEN EARRING with RADAR LOVE!!


As well as making me want to wear tight clothes and shake a tamberine like im licking a dinner plate, it also helped me to produce the below peice.



This is a 30cmx30cm hand drawn using posca paint pens(its was my first time using such pens, me like:)) this peice is going to be in a secret auction, where the people who want to buy the work write down their contact details and the amount they want to pay, the winning bid recives the work and all the money is donated to the Red Cross.

I will also be doing some live drawing at the opening event 3rd may from 4 untill 9pm.


Here are a few artists that are exhibiting:

Mr Gauky
Foe
Simon Wild
Penfold
Sam Peet

Come down grab a beer and buys some art, as it is for charity.

Birds of a feather flock together

Back in the game and life changing events






The past 15 week or so have been a little bit busy compared to the norm.
As well as trying to create my website(www.mistermillerchip.com coming soon), Christian Nunn and my good self, well more Christian with a little help from me, have created Lielow and Sketch, Lielow and Sketch are a non-profit artists collective, with the aim to produce exhibitions, zines, live painting nights and much much more, with a little help from Ipswich town council and IP1 we are putting on our first show in June called "3", we have some great exhibitors including Steve Rack, Simon Wild, Gemma Correll, plus many more.

Christian and I were also asked back by the King st Swap Meet Boys to do some Live Doodles why they spun some hip-hop delights (photos attached).
Another big thanks to Andy, Lee and to all the people that gave us doodle love on the night.

I have also been teaching some illustration briefs at West Suffolk College, this was a great opportunity; I got to meet some really cool people and some of the Suffolk’s future creative talent.
Mark my words peeps, Suffolk is a hot bed of young creative talent :).

This is very exciting times for me but the above isn’t the life changing bit............ on the 18th march 2009 at 23.09 my beautiful wife gave birth to my son Freddie Millerchip........................Mister Millerchip & Son, it’s got a ring to it :).

Toodles
