@guinnesspunch : Not the most beautiful photo but i know you had to climb to get this picture! And it is from around 2000 one of a few remaining bits from that era of my life!

@airmaximus : Cut and pasted then photographed- no photoshop. I just love a little bit of effort! Nice one!

There were many entries to pick from and plenty of the others came very close, but i had to choose and i explained my reasons above. Below are a selection of my other favorites!

LA ARTSHARE WHOLE BUILDING!!!

So I did it!

I made it to LA and I painted the whole damn building!

Located at the corner of Hewitt and 4th, Downtown Los Angeles.

The building is the home of Art Share L.A. a non-profit organisation dedicated to cultivating the creative Arts District community, and making art accessible to all. Having been at the heart of the Arts District for the last 15years, the Los Angeles Times describe Art Share as ‘the Town Hall of downtown Los Angeles’. So I was honored to be giving the place a facelift!

INSA-LA1

This painting is BIG! My biggest yet. Look at that bus dwarfed by the painting!

Covering all 3 sides of the building this painting measures 9,300 sq ft!!!

Which makes it THE CURRENT LARGEST MURAL IN LA- WHOOP WHOOP!!!

INSA-LA2 INSA-LA3

This massive free piece of public art was only possible due to the support of those that bought the ‘LA papers’ artwork and the dedicated hard work of LA FREEWALLS who are doing a very important job transforming the landscape of downtown LA and fighting a fearless battle with the crazy mural laws of Los Angeles.

NAIL ART RESULTS!!

SO if you didn’t know- I recently held a nail art competition in conjunction with Sophy Robson and NAILPORN. I’ve gotta say I was really impressed by the amount of great entries and the quality and creativity of the winning designs! Originally we were just gonna pick one winner but it was so hard to decide that we extended it to 3 winners!

1st> DECO NAILS>
First1

First2 First3

We chose these as the winners not just because of the good execution and original ideas, but there were plenty of great shots of the finished piece and they came with a 40 page!! sketch book of thoughts, ideas and inspiration behind the designs. GOOD WORK!

page1 page2 page3 page4

2nd> Mona Leanne

Second

I dont even need to explain why we chose these- Sick colours, amazing skill and the INSA ‘teardrop’ shaped thumb nail is inspired!! AWESOME!

3rd> Linda Khuu

Third1

A great set, very clean skillfully painted! Love the elephant dung texture on the little nail and the chain thumb nail is AMAZING- if it had been a whole set of heart chains it could even have been the out right winner!

Third2

As i said we had so many entries it was a tough job picking the winners. I though it would be cool to showcase some of the other entries here:
