29 days of Stoke Newington

28 Drawings later is a drawing challenge and social networking project created by Visual Artist Victoria Evans, based in Glasgow. It’s an evolving, month-long facebook gallery for everyone, artists and non-artists alike.
I took this as an opportunity to explore streets and alleys and learn a little about the local history. From twitter @northsixteen followers I got some suggestions for houses or got inspiration from discussions, like the St Mary’s lodge on Lordship road with it’s controversy history.

So now February is almost over….so, what shall happen with them next? – Themed posters? Tea towels? Pictures? Printed Cotton Bags? A book?…. 

Every single one was scanned and vectorised allowing a great variety of size. The ‘Pubs of Stoke Newington Poster’ is already finished and the first one is on it’s way to Norway to a former Stoke Newington resident. But I am also planning to create another poster with a greater selection of Stoke Newington Houses and explore the option of adding colour on A4 prints of single houses. Suggestions? Request – let me know!

A1 pub poster – ‌£25‌

Single buildings A4 prints – ‌£15

Tea towel – ‌£15

Printed cotton bag – ‌£15

… fancy something else? Get in touch.

… and in the meanwhile, I better get the drawings together to send of to Glasgow: ‘ In celebration of the 2012 leap year, 28 Drawings Later will culminate in an offline ‘real world’ exhibition of work at Gallery Hair, The Old Hairdressers in Renfield Lane, Glasgow City Centre opening the evening 4th of March.’
