mural

Brighton by Josephine Hicks

Last week I headed south coast to do another couple of walls in Brighton. The design is based on the Ancona region of Sirolo. A mix of collaged photographic elements - cathedral, roman bust, Ancona duck… with painterly sections. Im getting to grips with using spray paint for fades, which gives an added dreamlike quality.

Heres some work-in-progress pics from this week painting on Clerkenwell Road for an illustration Commissioned by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Great to work for such an iconic brand on there thirty year celebration campaign featuring three landscapes in the UK favoured by the Camper van customers. I was joined by my brother Edd Hicks and other top professionals from Global Street Arts, great to improve from spray paint skills and work on the biggest wall to date!

Sign writing prep by Josephine Hicks

Pouncing!

Trying out the traditional method of transferring guidelines for sign writing today. You run the wheel round the outside of your letters or drawing, then using a pounce pad, you use a fine powder to push through the holes leaving you a dotted line to trace your letters! ...in theory :) will let you know how i get on 

 

Check out AS Handover either online or at there Dalston store, for all your sign writing equipment!
