It’s nearly time to get with the baubles! I’ve designed 7 new Christmas cards, all of them available from that world of wonder, Chorlton Art Market. There are drunken cats, booby-trapped doorbells and Kate Bush, to name a few. Pop down and check them out or buy online from www.markwallisdesign.com
December Will Be Magic Again by Kate Bush has inspired two new Christmas card designs for 2015, which I’ve based on a famous photograph by Gered Mankowitz and a rare picture from a magazine photoshoot (photographer unknown.) These cards come in a 4-pack with 2 of each design in a large, luxury format with envelopes and cellophane sleeves. Ideal for those special Fish People in your life, buy them here http://www.markwallisdesign.com/shop/4586114626/kate-bush-christmas-cards-4-pack/10219093
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 markwallisdesign.com and Chorlton Art Market in Manchester, England.
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 markwallisdesign.com 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.
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.
