My Kate Bush Before The Dawn poster got a mixed reaction, praised and savaged in equal measure, despite only being fan art. When it appeared as an imaginary DVD cover, the trolls rose up again and gave me a good grilling. I’m bulletproof now, which is just as well: here’s the animated version, illustrating my most vivid memories of Kate’s phenomenal stage show in 2014. If you enjoyed it, please drop by my Facebook page and give it a like! Thanks.
Manchester’s Chorlton Art Market has gone all modern with free wi-fi and a card machine! No more rummaging for cash! Full of the most colourful arts, crafts and vintage clothing – all from local talent – and just down from Quality Save, pop in and support independent trade. I’ll be adding these prints with stone, chalk and gilt effect vintage frames this week. Hurry, because people keep buying stuff!
Each print is also available unframed at Mark Wallis Design, with free postage and packing while stocks last. Framed prints are currently exclusive to Chorlton Art Market. For all the latest news on my new artwork, like my Facebook page!
In dear Old Blighty the general election is looming. This image popped into my head for some reason, and all apologies to Pierre et Gilles, whose original picture this really is. My personal politics are in no way reflected in this piece, but I think the point is made. Change is afoot, Michael.

New for April, Blooming Summer – a hazy, sun-dappled collection of greetings cards. Featuring flowers from a sleepy church in Norfolk, to a baking hot allotment in Chorlton, these dreamy images are hand made, blank inside and come in packs of 4, 144 x 144mm with square envelopes. Available here at Mark Wallis Design or why not pop into the Chorlton Art Market Hub shop in Manchester, where my framed prints are also available.
I’m very proud and excited to be part of the Chorlton Art Market Hub, where I’ve just launched the Mark Wallis Design stall. Selected framed art prints of my work are now available exclusively here, along with Spring and Easter greetings cards. CAM Hub is an independent small business in south Manchester, UK which has fought against corporate red tape to defend it’s patch in a richly diverse town full of creativity and character. If you’re in the area, and feel like brightening up your walls this spring, pop in and check out the wide range of wonderful arts and crafts and cards. There’s also some very colourful vintage clothing for summer.
