“Burning up each others’ love, burning up our lives
Tried all kinds of working out, miracle goodnight
Future full and empty knocking on my door
Ragged limbed and hungry mama
Miracle no more…
…haven’t got a death wish
I never want to say goodnight.”
Living graffiti which moves, looks like it’s sleeping and then stares at you. With this animated painting, I wanted to illustrate the immortality of David Bowie. The music stays.

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.

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.
