Illustrator of the week on Den

Stumbled upon this absolutely lovely review - Thank you Den, how very kind of you!

Illustrator of the week: Lucy Evans



We haven’t introduced you to a new creative name for a while in our blog posts, so today, here is our illustrator of the week: Lucy Evans. Her work can be described as linear, lovely and alluring, with a strong sense of movement captured in endless blissful moments. She really is superb!

The lady herself says her work is about ‘viewer being able to lose themselves in a moment of fascination and curiosity,’ though the series of mark making, splashes of beautiful colour and ‘surreal conceptual content.’ What we really like about this illustrator is her ability to capture something separate from reality, something extraordinary, something that releases you from everyday normality for just a moment. Her magic with the use of line is endearing and skilful and carefully adorns her female-littered material and she is no conventional illustrator! It appears on general trend, she is somewhat trying to care for her subjects in each of her pieces and praise ‘form’ of the natural world.

Evans says she likes ‘to allow the audience to work out the narrative for themselves or to interpret the imagery in their own personal way. I am heavily influenced by music, places and beautiful, ethereal things.’ We can definitely agree with her that she produces fantastical poetic imagery, a lot of which are a balance between colour-dye splashes, delicately intricate detailing and subtle dynamism.
Through many of her pieces you will find an underlying tone of vulnerability, gentleness and nurturing. We recommend you check out her website and show her some love, because its obvious she is a super duper grafter!

Computer Arts - Gallery of Mo article

 Click here to see the article

"I have done seven portraits so far, including the ones I drew live at the Movember launch party, and I'm just about to start on my eighth," says Lucy Evans. "What's great is there's no end of mo-styles to draw on people - thick ones, thin ones, curly ones, straight ones, french ones - you name it."

Twitter fame

Movember launch party

Look! Theres me on a Gallery of Mo bizz card!

Gallery of Mo totally smashed it! Well done team.  Looks like they'll be more live portrait events to come....

Wednesday, 17 October 2012


I'm very honoured to have been chosen as one of ten artists to be drawing live portraits at the official Movember launch party in central London on the 17th October.  Being one of the 'Gallery of Mo' official artists has meant getting some practice in on drawing a good mo before the event - although I have a feeling the mo's may be getting a little more magnificent on the night... 

Make a donation to Movember here and get yourself some mo action!

Paper Jukebox - Bath TIME exhibition

So our 'Time' exhibition at Fringe Arts Bath Festival seemed to go down pretty well... My blogging of this event has been horrendous, so here is a link to a decent one!  Shown above is what I exhibited. The series of images shows the rather perplexing concept of 'Entropy' but with a slightly more comprehendible and summery twist..

Entropy: The inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society.

Dirty White Everything

Dirty White Everything

The worst thing you ever did
was to make me feel self conscious
about the scar on my left arm.
As if someone had told me 
my favourite clothes
didn’t suit me.
Or my over rehearsed dinner party anecdote
wasn’t funny.
I can only imagine you now
covered in blood, 
looking like you fell out of purgatory. 
Dirty white everything,
dull as prescription drugs.
They tell me I fall in love too easily.
Sharing beds with conveyor-belt idiots,
breathing like two junkies
into each other.
But I have held him sober,
and seem to be the only one who knows,
man never really set foot on the moon
unless he took off his boot
and felt it between his toes. 

(Dirty White Everything unashamedly throws the situation of moving from one relationship quickly onto the next into a bright light and supports a 'no regrets' attitude to falling in love too easily.)

Florence and the machine's secret 7"

I'm taking part in a competition to have my artwork made into a 7" vinyl for one of Florence and the machine's (one of my faaaave musicians) singles. If I get through to the final 45, the 7" vinyl that I designed will be exhibited in London and sold at a charity auction raising money for the teenage cancer trust. I will also receive a signed copy for myself! Too good to be true.... I even did my final degree work on her, so this would, as cliche as it sounds, be a dream come true!!

So please pleeeease help me raise money for this great cause by voting for my artwork.

Many many thanks :)

Print repeats

Florence And The Machine competition entry

Please pleeeease support me here - voting opens Friday!

Artwork inspired by the song 'Only If For A Night' by Florence And The Machine.

I believe the song to be written about past loved ones, and how they still live on in your memory and dreams. I want to portray the overwhelming presence of someone Florence experiences in the song. Although this person may have died a long time ago, she can speak to them in her dreams as clear as if they are alive.

The funeral wreath signifies the death of the loved one, and the protagonist reaching past demonstrates her defying the obstacle of death, and communicating with this person on another level, whether it be in her dreams, spiritually or just through her memory. 

Her expression shows her getting lost in the surreal and extraordinary moment. 

Created using, pencil, ink and Photoshop.
