Steward Easton label and mural for twisted barrel ale

The mural on the wall is on the outside of the brewery Twisted Barrel Ale. It's a new brewery which has just opened up in Coventry. The imagery on the wall was drawn from an open brief- they wanted a representation of Coventry. Stewart chose to use the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom to depict for the wall painting.

Prior to the bombing during the blitz,  Coventry was a real pretty city with a vast amount of Tudor buildings. After the war the council pulled what was left down with a view of rebuilding it and making it a modern town -  but it was never finished.  As a reference to this Stewart have drawn lots of tudor style buildings based on the remaining ones in Coventry.
The labels design was once again an open brief, though  Stewart needed to have connections with Coventry.

On the label design you will see the Tudor buildings, Coventry's three spires, doves (as a reference to Coventry being a city of peace and reconciliation). I drew a lad and a lass in celebration of the tag line 'more folk than punk' from the brewery.

Matilda Harrison: To Bee or Not to Bee

We’re always interested in seeing our illustrators personal work, so we were delighted when Matilda Harrison sent us this. She has always loved to experiment with visual quotes and this is a recent interpretation of one by the Bard himself. Matilda's style of painting is influenced by naïve and folk art but filtered through a sophisticated eye, each brush stroke is meticulously considered and her work always has a very strong narrative quality to it.

La Segua

The uniquely talented artist Stewart Easton was asked to produce this lovely image entitled "La Segua", in his digital and hand embroidery style.

The image depicts a Costa Rican folk tale entitled:  'La Segua' which Stewart designed for the Making Moves project in conjunction with Craftspace Ltd.

The project is about working within a Hispanic Group formed of a mix of people from Spain, Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica with the aim to expose children to the Hispanic Culture and the Spanish language .
After meeting with them in Warwick, Stewart was required to make a piece of artwork which had a connection to the group. During the specific workshops that took place there was a great deal of story telling by the the people taking part. Stewart was inspired by a particular folk tale from Costa Rica entitled "La Segua" that was told by one of  the group,  and he has used that storyline for the grounds of his creative artwork.

This piece was hand drawn, digitally manipulated and printed digitally onto fabric. It was then finished by hand embroidery.
