My neighbourhood here in Bristol was lucky enough to be awarded funding through the Mary Portas - Portas Pilots
scheme. It's basically funding to help develop shopping areas which have closed down due to the recession. Help is given to shop owners to develop their business and bring a vibrant community back to run down areas.
Part of this funding is given way to the arts. There is a theme 'insects', where local artists can show their work in local shops and business forming a trail for people to follow.
Here is my application.
What do you think?
Vintage images, re-worked using textures and brushes with digital geo shapes added.
I hope they get selected!
Shall I also put some in my shop?
EDIT - These prints are now available in my BigCartel shop!
