Framed prints now available!

Mark Wallis Design at the Chorlton Art Market

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.

The Crooked Man

The new one pound coin with george Osborne by Mark wallis at thevibes.me
There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

Look, everyone! Pretty new things! Anything to distract you from the worst government in British history. Should I submit my George Osborne update for the new one pound coin to The Royal Mint?

Yuletide Thrills

Christmas Tree in Chorlton cum Hardy Manchester by Mark WallisTwelve months ago, Christmas was largely cancelled as we packed up and left the city for the leafy lanes of Chorlton. This time around, Panos created the ultimate tree to banish any winter blues. Retro illuminated signage by Mark Wallis

This year Christmas is Big. Sparks were seen as early as September and then just a few weeks ago the whole thing exploded. There are any number of Winter Wonderlands to walk through as Manchester becomes Lapland or the Swiss Alps. The only thing missing is the snow. Here I am, rosy-cheeked from mulled wine in front of an impressive… helicopter…carousel-type thing.

As much as I love the Yuletide, I’m thinking of lobbying the UN to make Christmas like the Olympics. It can be held in one country every five years, and every nation has to bid. What do you think of that?

Season’s greeting to all!

Summer Ghost

Clouds-in-the-Shed
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.
