Mum's the word!

Have begun working on a TOP SECRET portrait! Keeping mum about details for now but it's exciting & could be my crowning glory if all comes together! Been working on it all week & will spill the beans as soon as possible & that's a promise. Watch this space!!

Loughborough's Anti-Smoking & Anti-Paan Chewing campain launch

With Zahida Niazi & Bilkis Hussain from the NHS.
I've had a busy time with photography jobs lately but midweek, dressed for the cold weather, Max & I drove to Loughborough for the launch of the most recent NHS Anti-Smoking & Anti-Paan Chewing campaigns. 
Considering the limited turnaround time (I blogged about getting the contract on 4 Jan), the finished artwork looked pretty good on display at the Moira Centre.
With me in the pic are Zahida Niazi, Smoking Cessation Specialist (left), & Bilkis Hussain, Smokeless Tobacco Expert (centre) from Leicestershire NHS.
The health campaigns are targeting Loughborough's Bangladeshi community & the posters & pamphlets are already available in GP surgeries & community centres across the town.

Kapow by Innermost.
Proving that inspiration comes from many sources, this genius lampshade is Kapow by Innermost
Made of lightweight netted tubing the hoops & swirls fall to various lengths making the dimensions around 30cm x 30cm. 
Arriving in a hanger-suspended container shaped a little like a box of Panettone, I so like the texture, the shape & the unusual construction that I wouldn't be surprised if a feature based on this piece of lighting art appears in one of my portraits very soon!
