Felt Mistress x Ben Newman

I few weeks ago I posted some sneak peeks of the work I was doing with Ben Newman. Well the show opened last Thursday (runs till the 11th November) so I can now reveal the full images. It was a great pleasure to work with Ben his work is beautiful and he is a thoroughly nice chap. His show "Masks" is at Nobrow in London (who are also very nice chaps)As well as Ben's amazing prints on display, he has collaborated with other artists, I made three large Yokai from Ben's book Bento Bestiary. He also collaborated with Sahar Freemantle on some miniature millinery and his dad Colin on some 3d wooden masks ( they are so good). You so need to check out this show, as well as the work on display Nobrow also publish some great books by some brilliant artists so be warned you may leave there with a lighter pocket!
You can buy prints from Ben here. And any enquiries about purchasing the pieces done for the show from here.
Many thanks to Ben for getting me involved and to Nobrow who I have worked with a few times previously and it's always a pleasure.

Here's a selection of pics, from set up and at the Private view.

Thanks to my lovely friend Woodrow for this last photo :)
