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.

Kate Bush Before The Dawn animation

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.

Shabby Chic down at the Art Market

Vintage Frames and colour prints by Mark Wallis
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!

Saint Ed

Ed Miliband by Mark Wallis via Pierre et Gilles
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.
