Following on from my solo show at Scicluna Deli (thanks for having me there!), I’ll be selling cards and other things at Doncopolitan’s Pop-Up Shop at Frenchgate Centre on 23rd July. There’ll be lots of other creative events going on throughout the night from alternative music to discovering new music around the area. Doncaster is a small town with lots of character, charm, Donny accents (you can tell btw), and history.
Hello folks! Hope you’re all enjoying the weather we’re having at the moment. I am very pleased to announce that my website is now up and running- hurrah! It’s taken me a while to get my head around WordPress again but it’s getting there; there’s a couple more tweaks here and there that I still need to do, but other than that it’s looking a lot more slick and better than before.
I’m also super excited say that my solo show at Scicluna Deli in Doncaster is now up and running from now until the end of the month. My dad, bless him, helped me to set up and we got there in the end. Albeit a total of two hours chatting away to Josie and Angie who works there.
I’ll be there again on Saturday 15th just to check things are a-okay and in the meantime if you happen to be around the area why not pop in and have a gander. There are cards, postcards, art prints and lots of other lovely things for sale.
Thanks for reading as always and enjoy the weekend!
I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be showcasing work at Scicluna Deli in Doncaster from June 1st – June 30th.
Please see below for more details about the show:
Art at the Deli: Animal Menagerie
A solo exhibition by Jo Cheung Illustration
Show dates: June 1st – June 30th 2019
Jo Cheung is a freelance illustrator and designer based in London. She studied at Doncaster Churchview for a year and after that she went on to study BA HONS Illustration at the University of Westminster. Since then she has resided in London and has exhibited her work in numerous galleries across London.
Inspired by her continuing interest with the natural world, she will be presenting a series of work that examines our relationship with the natural world. Imaginary landscapes and an idealistic view often depicting animals roaming free with no human intervention has been the continuing theme in Jo’s work. Often, animals and birds are isolated within the scene with no human element involved. Our way of living in a consumer society is having a massive and major impact on the environment- irreversible damage which is caused by our lifestyle such as production of food, deforestation, the over reliance of fossil fuel, over consumption of ‘fast fashion’ is having a detrimental effect on the natural world. She likes to pose this question to the audience when viewing her work.
Jo works in various mediums when making her images. She enjoys to experiment with layout and composition when making collages, this is also true when digitally altering the final image on the computer.
I’ve been keeping this under wraps for sometime now but I’m happy to announce that I’ll be running a two day Etsy training workshop in conjunction with Doncaster Central Learning Centre in November. The main aim of the workshop is to provide learners with no previous experience to have some basic understanding and skills: from promoting work online to writing simple and clear product descriptions. The ethos of the workshop is all about digital inclusion: promoting equal life chances and opportunities for all. I will be taking it right from the beginning as to how I started out to an easy step-by-step guide on listing products.
Where and When
The workshop will take place over two days, from Saturday 10th – Sunday 11th November from 10am – 3pm at DCLC.
37 Bennetthorpe, Doncaster DN2 6AA
Please get in touch with me if you’d like to book a place, or alternatively get in touch with Lai Lim who runs DCLC at [email protected].
Hey! How’s your Christmas been? Are you still in a food coma? Have you been binging on Christmas films like me? I’m going to be squishing in a Christmas update and work which has been published in a local magazine called Doncopolitan. They contacted me about a year ago and I never got round to submitting any work for them. For once, I was super organised, and got back in touch with them asking them if I could submit any illustrations for their Christmas edition. Fast forward a few months later and I now have a (few) physical copies of the magazine in my hand! Doncopolitan is a local magazine promoting and celebrating local talent, creativity and events in Doncaster. I felt like the magazine should get some serious coverage as Doncaster is in need of something different- in a good way- and when you think about the significant changes Doncaster has undergone (and is still continuing), local artists and businesses should get the attention they deserve.
We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at our house (our first Christmas in London!). It was pretty exciting to be spending time in our house over Christmas and it made it even more special as well. We had the dogs visiting us, it was like Jumanji vibes but in a good way! For Christmas dinner, we had pheasants and bacon in cider sauce, loads of veggies, roast potatoes, mashed celeriac with bread sauce. Delicious to say the least! This was then followed by tons of amazing cheeses and crackers.
I’m going to end the post here with some more photos of Mario posing next to the Christmas tree. I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and wishing you all a very Happy New Year! Thanks so much for following me, it really means a lot, and here’s to 2018!
