I could have titled this piece any number of things in relation to the environmental impact of beef and dairy production. In the end I settled on “15000 Litres of Water”.
I saw that the Google doodle on the day the Sochi Olympics opened was a rainbow flag with Olympic sports depicted, of course in direct support of the gay community, and in the face of the anti-gay Russian legislation.
Seeing as these days the full Lego colour palette includes many more than it used to do, and conveniently nearly an exact match to all the colors of the rainbow flag, it inspired me to show my support and create something similar in Lego. I would like to create a much bigger version, but for now this gets the point across.
Small World Coffee’s Love Show is almost upon us. The show starts next Tuesday and Friday is the opening party. As ever the show is not only about bringing community artists and art together it is to support a local cause. This year, funds generated by the show will go towards Arts Council of Princeton’s Art Exchange Program, which offers after school art classes for children of families served by HomeFront of Trenton.
I have just been finishing off a portrait mosaic for the Small World Coffee Love Show this year. This portrait will actually form the centre of a wider mosaic I am working on. However, I wanted to have something in my local cafe again, I wanted something quite different to last year, and this seemed a good way to loosely connect to the word Love.
The Love Show is a great annual, local event and supports a local charity each year mainly through the fundraising opening night, t-shirt sales and some artwork sales. The opening night party this year is February 7th, 7pm-pm.
