Sun 12th Dec: FKB for AAK

The charity Art Against Knives are producing a series of 3 designer T-Shirts to add to their online shop and asked me to contribute one of the styles. I based my signature polka dot sticker collage artwork on a pair of butterfly wings that I made a few years ago. Ive made it physcadelic and as colourful as possible to brighten up any wardrobe ........... and also make use of this offer of emblazoning a T-Shirt with digital print as Ive never had the chance before! For the price of only £20, its not only a bargain Christmas gift but the profits will go to fund AAK amazing work in youth-led arts initiatives providing an alternative to violent gang culture. AAK works to reduce the root causes of knife crime after the tragic and unprovoked stabbing of Oliver Hemsley, a 21-year-old student from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design. The vicious attack, which has left Oliver in a wheelchair, took place in Shoreditch, East London, in August 2008. It is the impact of this that drives Art Against Knives to create something positive from such a life-changing experience.
