I am bear-y excited...

This summer, Birmingham will become Bearmingham (i know, the bear puns never end), as 100 bear sculptures designed by different artists, descend upon the city.

This is for The Big Sleuth, which is a public art project formally known as The Big Hoot (yep, owls instead of bears). It's an awesome project which gets people from all different parts of the community involved, and aims to raise money for the Birmingham Children's Hospital.

I'm very, very excited and proud to say that I have been commissioned to paint one!

Now, I'm sworn to secrecy so can't reveal too much, but here's a sneak peek of my first day painting, and a little snippet of my design proposal. I can't wait for you all to see the finished thing! 

Catch you all on the art trail! x
