Cancer sell charity event

Recently I attended the Cancer Sell charity event in Old St. It was a colleague at work who was helping out with the event who invited us. The event consisted of a bunch of street artists donating they're work for sale and auction with all the proceeds going to charity. Some of the artists included were Banksy and Copyright.

There was some really good work to buy prices from £20 up, which I thought was very bargainous! We bagged two paintings of mexican sugar skulls, I thought they were by the same artist but not so (maybe sugar skulls are the next big thing), the one with the baby blue background is by Please Flush' and the other by OGSF Familia.

Overall it was a great night and they made a load of money for charity. Here are some more pic's:

The next day I was feeling inspired and actually decided to do some painting myself. I decided to do a painting as a wedding gift for my friends Lloyd and Bengu. We went to Cas art and bought loads of art supplies including Posca pens which I now adore, so much easier than painting lines! Here's the result (Bengu's gonna hate me for putting this pic up but it's the only one I got before I gave it away, I'm in the middle).
