Fishink Artwork

June 27, 2016

Happy Monday everyone. I’m still working hard on building up some new artwork for next month’s Sale Arts Trail, Sale, Manchester. I did a quick question session for them here …


A good friend lent me their badge making machine…. oh what fun. I swear it’s such an integral part of artistic folk’s second nature to produce products and I for one had a great time creating 80 hand-made badges for the Sale show. I nearly didn’t want to give it back lol

Some designs I re-coloured especially for the badges and others are collages pieced together beneath the plastic coating.

It is quite addictive.  Something new… elephant illustrations.

I’m enjoying making these. Don’t forget to come along to Sale on the 9th and 10th July for the Sale ArtsTrail and drop in to say hello. I’ll be displaying a large range of work in Minikin Emporium, which is Venue C on the Sale Arts Trail Map. There will be 50+ other designers exhibiting over 24 different venues, so it should be an exciting weekend.

Look forward to seeing you all there. More work available here on my website.

    Fab work! I have got badge making machine envy! I would LOVE one of these contraptions! I like your dog pin with the swirly, blue background! The dog looks like he is enjoying a walk/ride in the wind – I could imagine the dog riding pillion on a motorbike! Good luck with the Sale Arts Trail:)

    The badges look great! My kids had a badge maker back in Scotland but it didn’t make the cut when we emigrated. We’ve regretted culling it. It was great fun designing and making badges.

      Yes Laura and far too much fun to stop making them too. I was quite disappointed when I ran out of the components to make them with lol
