This week I hung a new piece in the brand spanking new Frost and Snow cafe in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter.
Frost and Snow are a great company because not only do they make mighty fine cupcakes but they are also an organisation who give training and job opportunities to homeless people. Read more about what they do here:
I was asked to create a piece that was Birmingham-themed. As Central Library is quite topical of late due to petitions to stop it being knocked down, I thought that it should be the focal point.
So the character I have here is hugging it because despite it being classed as an ugly eye-sore by many, she truly does love it.
There are lots of other artists' work hanging on the wall there too so make sure you go and check them all out while you fill your faces and drench your throats.
Apologies for the reflection in this image below, I wanted to take a picture of it in its frame because the frame really is a beaut.
