We Had A Visitor

On the way down to the studio I had to have a wander through the Northern Quarter.
It's such a refreshing place with new art work popping up all the time.

Shortly after seeing the giant finch I stumbled across a Public House guarded by two ever faithful hounds.
The photograph doesn't do them justice, they were huge.

It's not that often we get visitors in our studio,
it's something we all relish here at 310.

The other day Cath, who did a course in Stockport in the same year as us
(who is really an Illustrator)
popped in to have some products photographed by Chris.
And to have a good ol' natter and a brew of course!

Cath does very, very good crockery with a witty twist and a slice of Northern character.

Halloween images

We decided to each do an illustration for Halloween and, considering we only had a couple of days to get it done, I think we have all done really well. We are going to make this a regular thing for each season, the next one being Christmas, with the intention of getting them printed as cards.

Stephen's image is below.

My image needs working into a little more as there are a few things I had to sacrifice in order to get it done for Monday, so I will re-post my improved image asap.
