The Electra Project

Electra Project poster

Here's the artwork for a new theatre production by Hungry Wolf for The Theatre Workshop. The Electra Project is the youth theatre group's piece for the Brighton Fringe and later in the year will also be at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The Electra Project is a piece of theatre that alludes to a 2012 nationally publicised and controversial GCSE performance, which resulted in the sacking of two drama teachers. Drawing off this nationally publicised event and the moral conundrum it provokes, The Electra Project is based on a group of A level students devising a Greek tragedy that goes horribly wrong. The Piece, a comedy, will explore themes such as the importance of drama in schools, the boundaries that are in place and questioning whether we are still allowed to make mistakes in education. Written and Directed by Dave Jackson, NYT, ITV and Radio 4.

Check out full details of The Electra Project on The Theatre Workshop's site.

We didn't want to give too much away so I chose an image from a crucial point in the performance that will hopefully draw you into the story. As ever here are some close ups...

Rat Rod

I recently caught Sin City Motors on TV and it gave me the idea for this new illustration. Ever since my first car, a lilac SoCal VW beetle, I've loved car customisations and I think what Welderup do is the ultimate in custom car builds. This one is a quick, nimble, classic rat, set in Monument Valley with the mule deer come to take a look.

When I've got time, I'm hoping to do a series of these with different rat rods and custom rides inspired by the american landscape and natural world. One day hopefully I'll be able to own another classic car, probably not a custom build quite up to the standard of Welderup's creations though!

Here are some details:
