In case you’ve been incredibly out of the loop with my general goings on (you’ve been missing out on a hell of a lot of fun), GoGoDragons is a Norwich based event which – in short – involves having uniquely painted, person-sized dragon sculptures scattered in and around the city. Which is as cool as it sounds.
And this year I just happened to be one of the artists that successfully got a sponsor for my dragon design! Dipples the jewellers (in Norwich & Dereham) sponsored my design called ‘Dragon’s Hoard’ which focuses on the idea of dragons hoarding treasure and gold like the crazy gold diggers they are. Below is my original design I submitted:
So, since around November last year, I’ve been gradually transforming my dragon into something fabulous. It’s been a whole bunch of fun, not only painting the dragon but also hanging out with some other artists and getting to know the Norwich illustration scene that little bit better (it’s a lot bigger than I thought!).
Very recently, I finally managed to finish my big ol’ dragon, and here’s the progress…
It’s been so much fun working on this project with so many marvellous people. A huge thank you to Break and WildInArt for organising it all, Dipples for sponsoring my design and everybody else who has been awesome and lovely. Can’t wait to see all these badboys released into the general public in the next month or so, it’s going to be so damn good.
