Love Arts Leeds: Happiness Postcard Exhibition

I'm gonna be part of this great exhibition showing at the Leeds Art Gallery from September 28 - October 12. There will be 50 local, national and international artists showing work at the exhibition. It's in the Art Space (near the shop).

The postcard exhibition is part of the Love Arts Festival, which celebrates the role of the arts in improving the mental health and well-being. With the theme of happiness.

So, here's my postcard;

The photo was taken by my wife Hayley Wall while on our honeymoon in Tokyo. One of the happiest times of my life. It was taken from the top of Tokyo Tower.

All postcards will be raffled at the end of the project. Proceeds will go towards raising funds for initiatives that promote positive mental health and well-being through the arts. This is a cause that's very close to my heart for personal reasons and I'm really glad to be part of it. I hope you can go along to see my postcard and all the other great works.

Hello There Mr Bug...

River Don, Aberdeen, Scotland. Photo taken by Hannah Forsyth.

I've not done many close up on nature type photos, a perfect opportunity to add a little beastie, and err, a bigger beastie. The big guys just saying "hiya", but the little fella looks a bit worried.

Oregon, Something is Coming to Get You!

Steel Bridge, Portland, Oregon, USA. Photo taken by Rodrigo Gallardo (lives in San Francisco).

Cloverfield 2?

Really like the mood of this photo. I tried to match the tone, but keep it doodley. Rodrigo is kindly allowing me to sell prints of this if you'd like one, it would look awesome on the walls of any proud Portlander.

Thanks for the great image!
