WorryBoy fun!

WorryBoy has been a part of my life for a long while and in the last 2 years more so than ever! I’ve seen WorryBoy change from an idea to represent my own history with depression to a visual story, an exhibition, a school program, a graphic novel in the making and now also a fun workshop at Free Space Health Centre!

I am always blown away by the creative thinking of kids and their comics were all as unique as they themselves were. I had the best time and am looking forward to the second workshop on Wednesday 22nd August!

Interview in Art Reveal!

It’s been a real honour to have been interviewed for the latest issue of Art Reveal! Especially when I saw the artists I am sharing the limelight with!

You can read the interview below…and I hardly recommend checking out the other artists as well!

 

WorryBoy at Shaftesbury Park Primary

For 6 weeks Year 5 of Shaftesbury Park Primary in Battersea have been part of WorryBoy’s story. They have been a true joy to work with and I could not have had a better start for WorryBoy to come to life! They have been creating their own pieces of art and their work, along side with mine, will be shown at the WorryBoy exhibition in Bethnal Green at the Oxford House. 11-29th June…with creative minds like these it is bound to look good!

Bringing WorryBoy to school!

Year 5 of Shaftesbury Park Primary is joining the WorryBoy story and are creating some amazing things to show in June for the exhibition!

Two schools in Bethnal Green have just begun…can’t wait to see what these creative minds are going to come up with! It is a true privilege to share my vision with this bunch of brilliant humans…

Here a little sneaky-peak of what Year 5 is working on. Work in progress! To see it all, you’ll have to come to the Oxford House in Bethnal Green, 11-29 June 😉
