This is normanton

I was recently commissioned to create an illustration for Fifth Word, as a thank you to all of the lovely people that worked on and volunteered for the 'This is Normanton' project that is now being shown in Pickford House Museum in Derby. 

I wanted to capture the vibrance that is found in this area, looking through the archival visual research that was collected I began to formulate a mixed media collage that I think represents the community spirit of Normanton.

Chai and the City

Very productive morning down at Artcore. Collating research taken from the #LocalStudiesLibrary last week, in order to make a collaborative creative booklet in response the Chai and the City project. Today we focused on the first ever Teas-made, invented by Samuel Rowbottom in 1892.
