Since the beginning of December 2010 I and the other illustrators of the Stars In Stripes have been busy drawing onto the windows a giant indoor space owned by the Open Minds Theatre group. Armed with paint rollers, emulsion and posca pens we've scrawled on all of the windows and gathered an extensive back catalogue of our live art work from the past 2 years ranging from Tramlines to the SOYO live art events.
We base ourselves as a Sheffield collective and we're very honoured to have been invited to Rotherham to show the city what we can do, our current Rotherham resident, Sarah Abbott has taken the lead and put her signature floral style to good use, linking all the work together with her linear and bold patterns.
We're curating our first group show under the Stars In Stripes banner in the centre of Rotherham for 2 weeks only and we're going to kick start it with an opening evening on Thursday 27th January where we'll be drawing on t-shirts, putting DJs on to spin some tracks and selling cupcakes, cakes and raffle tickets. I'm sure if I mention that there will be beverages and hot drinks it might perk some attention too.
