The leaves they are a-changing


I’ve come up with some new designs for autumn, mixing cats, wizards, pumpkins and gunpowder. Chase away the seasonal chill with some fall colours, available at and Chorlton Art Market in Manchester, England.

Mark Wallis Design on tour!

Mark wallis design stall at The Post Box Cafe in Chorlton

My first ever market stall was a big success yesterday at The Post Box Cafe Market in Chorlton, Manchester. It was a shabby chic affair – more chic than shabby! There were jazz singers, kittens and sangria in the sunshine. I’m launching a new range of feline flavoured cards which you can buy from as fine art print greetings cards or framed prints. If you’re in Manchester, why not call in at the Chorlton Art Market to buy a card or a print in person.

Summer Ghost

As the pumpkins grin with Harvest mischief, and the smell of gunpowder hangs in the crisp air, I have the memories of a great summer to keep me warm.

Hazy Shade of Summer

Little ginger cat

It’s a hazy shade of summer down on the allotment, everything’s blooming, colourful chaos. I slipped through security and wandered into the sunset, meeting a gorgeous little ginger cat who rolled around and posed for pictures. How do cats know it’s a camera? Little Ginge reminded me of the Late Great Sparky, my beloved super-sized tom cat who features elsewhere on The Vibes. The bees were buzzing in the dying rays of the sun, refusing to pose for the camera – just too plain busy! Good to see so many of them.
