Viva Lewes

April 26th, 2017

Really enjoyed illustrating and designing the new May edition of Viva Lewes. Always enjoy browsing through the magazine and it’s had many great covers over the years. I was asked to design a cover to coincide with the opening of the new Depot cinema in Lewes. I was slightly apprehensive as the cinema was a building site when I had last visited and I usually prefer drawing on location. However when Katie at Viva emailed me a few photos of the building site and a few architectural drawings¬† I felt more confident and responded immediately with a couple of roughs. I then worked up our favourite and created linocuts for the main image an colour. I worked bigger than the magazine format which made it slightly easier to cut the image. Then scanned the linocut and made a few tweaks in Photoshop and hey presto the new cover!

I’m taking part in the Lewes Artwave again this year. Enjoyed the first weekend. Lovely to meet so many visitors and demonstrate printing techniques. Feel free to visit the Pastorale Studios. There’s also tea and cake in the courtyard at the Buttercup Cafe.
