Set of five prints by Beowulf Mayfield

Fun for your wall...

I've been reading an interesting book - Show Your Work!: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Getting Discovered by Austin Kleon. It essentially advocates telling the world about your work, what inspires you and - very important this - giving credit to your influences.

I've done very little to show my work beyond this site and some Facebook posts to a relatively private circle of friends so I'm taking steps to put some physical prints from a current project out into the world. The five prints pictured above are now at The Arterie in East Dulwich, SE London. There are two featuring a saluting lead soldier outside Buckingham Palace in central London, two of Mr Pointy Man, a Fimo figure I made myself, pointing out Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. The fifth is a photo of paper cut-out figures inspired by the Colyton laundry protest.

The images are all postcard width - 148mm - and vary in depth. The total paper area is 177mm x 127mm, all are exhibition quality C-type matt prints.

It's high time I did a detailed blog post about photographing toys in real places and the models I've made myself using Fimo polymer clay. I will... soon... watch this space. In the meantime, if you're in SE London pay a visit to The Arterie. There are lots of interesting artworks to see and two very pleasant springer spaniels to meet!

The Arterie Gallery and Picture Framers in East Dulwich

Where's The Arterie? The Arterie is at 37, North Cross Road, East Dulwich, London SE22 9ET. It's open from Tuesday to Saturday. It has a page on Facebook.

I'm in north London and I don't like going south of the river... Don't be silly, there's lots to enjoy in East Dulwich and the Horniman Museum is only a short bus ride away...

What about those of us who don't even live in England, let alone London? Send me a private message and we can sort something out...
