Hello and a Happy New year. King Kwak and myself currently have ourselves a mini Exhibition running until February, displaying a collection of work we have produced together as a joint Kwak collaboration. 'City Celebration' is the name of the collection and it is a growing series of illustrations portraying recognisable landmarks filled to the brim with celebration. Each locale is bursting with a mix of humour, fun, known faces and events, often alongside more controversial and political issues. An exploration of each areas brighter and sometimes darker sides. Look closely and see what you can spot?. The exhibition is held at a local food shop/ restaurant named Salt & Pepper, based at 177 Replingham Road in Southfields, Wandsworth, London (on the district line) and should you be in the hood do pop by as it really is a fantastic place, the food and drinks are all cooked on site by a lovely couple and its all rather lovely and delicious. There are lots of little crafty decoration/ play/ food bits for sale on site too, and they are absolutely brilliant with dogs and children... well worth a trip.

Upon the wall.
A Southfields print is in the window, to hopefully entice all the locals in.
I whipped up a little print stand to hold all the unframed prints. It was a washing basket, who knew.
Badges and mirrors:
A selection of badges and mirrors with the Southfields illustration are available again for the locals. Southfields is the tube station for the Wimbledon tennis, All England lawn tennis and croquet club, hence why the packaging/ print colours are all based upon the tennis colours.
Salt & Pepper:

And here are a few outtakes:
The night before.
Unframed prints, all packaged up nice and professional, with the Fulham print on top. Ideal for any Chelsea FC fans.
Extremely sophisticated mode of transport, with the cutest assistant in town in tow.
With a little help from my assistant.
This is the collection of prints available. Please check them out in detail upon my website here, under the City Celebration tab. If anyone is interested in purchasing a print, please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org
