Christmas Gifts 2021: Next-Day Delivery To BS21 Postcode For Orders Until Dec. 23
Live in the BS21 postcode area? I’m offering guaranteed same-day or next-day delivery for all orders from my Etsy shop that are placed before 5 p.m. on Thursday, December 23, 2021.
So there’s no need to worry about your online gifts not arriving in time for Christmas.
Click through to the shop here.
I’ve got a wide selection of prints, posters, calendars, cards, jigsaw puzzles, coasters, aprons, tea towels and more - all featuring designs illustrated by myself! They include illustrations of Clevedon, Bristol, Bath, Weston-super-Mare, Portishead, Somerton, Wells, Glastonbury, etc..
I’ve just released this map of Clevedon as a new print — it’s similar to the ones you may have seen around Clevedon that I illustrated for the Discover Clevedon tourist boards. I initially released this one as a landscape print a few weeks ago but there was something about it that I felt wasn’t quite right. So after a bit of thought, I changed it to portrait, tweaked a couple of parts and think it works much better now!
It's available to buy from my Etsy shop here.
The map features all the Clevedon landmarks and the town's beautiful walks: like Clevedon beach, Walton Castle, Ladye Bay, Clevedon House, Clevedon Pier, Poet's Walk and more. I only have a limited number available (I only buy in small quantities when I first release a product) so if it sells out before Christmas, I still have lots of other products featuring my illustrations of Clevedon, Bristol, Somerset and beyond on my Etsy shop.
I’m auctioning my one-off artwork of the beautiful Hill Road in Clevedon at Christmas on eBay!
The auction for this unique piece of Somerset art ends at 6pm on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Click for the link here.
I only released my illustration as a Christmas card a couple of weeks ago and after receiving so many lovely comments (thank you everyone!) I was inspired to create this unique, one-off piece in a similar style to how I did my Curzon tile back in 2019.
Details: 30cm x 40cm - portrait — mixed media print of digital illustration — on plywood backing — framed -- hand-painted textured details - signed on the back
I used a similar technique to decorate my tile for the Curzon Roof Appeal which sold at auction for an incredible £390.
After the end of the auction, I’ll either hand deliver to the winning bidder anywhere in the BS21 area or send it special, signed delivery elsewhere. And if you miss out, don’t worry, you can still buy my Clevedon-illustrated designs from my Etsy shop here.
Thanks again for all the support over this year!
Really enjoyed visiting Grayson Perry’s Art Club Exhibition at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery which opened last week. The Channel 4 show was great to watch during lockdowns and it was lovely to see all the works featured up close. Also saw Banksy’s stencil that he used for his Reading Prison piece which he’s now apparently planning to sell to turn the prison into an arts venue.
Celebrity artists involved in the exhibition include Grayson Perry (obviously), his wife Philippa, Anneka Rice, Jane Seymour, Lianne La Havas, Lucy Sparrow, Mawaan Rizwan, Russell Tovey, Sue Perkins and Tom Allen. The exhibition is running until September 2022 and you can buy tickets on the museum website here. Some photos from the show here:
One of my favourite projects to work on this year was a commissioned illustration of Clevedon's Queen's Square for the Clevedon Twilight Market.
The Clevedon Christmas Twilight Market is being held this Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 12noon to 7pm and will feature screenings from Clevedon's Curzon Cinema, which will be showing silent films and archive footage from the town.
See a reworked version of the illustration (which the market, Discover Clevedon, the Curzon and more have all shared on their social media pages!) encouraging people to shop local this Christmas below, and check out my illustrations of Clevedon which are for sale on my Etsy shop here. Also do get in touch if you'd like to commission a similar project!
I've just added a new design to my collection of Somerset-themed Christmas cards with this festive scene of the beautiful town of Somerton and its Market Square.
The same location also features on my 2022 Somerset calendar, of which I now only have a limited number left. I didn't want to order too many just in case I didn't sell them before the clock strikes 12 on December 31! Luckily, the response has been lovely!
The Somerton Christmas card (as shown in the picture below) is available to buy as single cards or packs of multiples from my Etsy shop here.
In the same shop, I've also got cards for sale featuring Bristol, Clevedon, Wells, Glastonbury and more. Do let me know if you'd like me to create a customised Christmas card for yourself or your business this year, following a project I'll be sharing more on soon.
The official switch-on of the Christmas lights in Clevedon town centre may have been postponed by Storm Arwen at the weekend, but they still switched the lights on and they are looking fantastic! Here are some photos I took around Clevedon Triangle on Saturday of the Clevedon Clock Tower, the "Merry Christmas Clevedon" sign which is in Clevedon's Queen's Square and the lovely lights on Clevedon Baptist Church. I've also posted a few pictures from the Clevedon Alexandra Gardens lights display on my blog and if you'd like to buy any of my illustrations of Clevedon for gifts, stocking fillers, etc.. then you can visit my Etsy shop here!
I'm excited to release a brand new Christmas card for 2021 of the beautiful shopping street of Hill Road in Clevedon, North Somerset!
Taking inspiration from my existing card featuring a festive Clevedon town centre and the iconic Curzon Cinema, I decided to change things up a little bit by designing a night-time scene, complete with some of the wonderful Christmas lights that are currently in the area. (see some of my pictures of the Light Up The Parks display on my blog here).
The card is available to buy on my Etsy shop here. For bulk orders or to stock in a shop, please email me via the contact form or on social media (Facebook and Instagram).
Clevedon’s Hill Road and Alexandra Road — and the Alexandra Gardens park and the Copse Park just by Clevedon Pier — have been lit up by beautiful lights this Christmas.
The crowdfunded Light Up The Parks display is switched on at dusk.
The Clevedon Christmas Market — in collaboration with The Sunday Market, Clevedon BID, Clevedon Town Council & Hill Road/Alexandra Road Traders — will take place from 6pm to 9pm on Thursday, December 9, 2021. All the details from the Discover Clevedon website here.
Here are some of my pictures of lights. And you can see some of my illustrations of Clevedon (including a brand new image of Hill Road) here.
Weston-super-Mare Jigsaw Puzzle
Brand new! I've just produced a brand new jigsaw puzzle of Weston-super-Mare in Somerset. It features the Weston-super-Mare Grand Pier. Can you spot the little reference to street artist Banksy's Dismaland, which was held in the nearby Tropicana?
The puzzle (produced by Ravensburger) has limited availability.
Can be bought on my Etsy shop (where I'm currently offering 12% off when 2 or more items are bought). And it;'s available as a card too!
