I have designed the poster art-work for a new musical at Southwark Playhouse ‘The A-Z of Mrs P’
The art-work was created from an A-Z of London, and the musical is about the life of the A-Z creator, ‘Phyllis Pearsall’, or as she was affectionately known as ‘Mrs P’
The Southwark Playhouse are currently raising money to support an original cast album, so that the show has a life beyond the stage.
They are using a crowd-funding platform called Indegogo where people pledge support in exchange for gifts.
The sculpture I created is one of the gifts.
The theatre has unitl 10th January to raise the monies – at that time the campaign ends.
I am reaching out to supporters of my work, who may also have a passion for musical theatre, or map-making, to let you know about this campaign.

New Design for Liberty Art Fabrics. Collaboration with Liberty London for their A/W 2014 fashion collection
October 21st, 2013 · No Comments
I began on the path to my art career back in 1995 when I tentatively turned to study textiles at Sheffield College, after leaving school without any qualifications. I went onto complete a two year course in Surface Pattern and Textile Design. While at college, I experimented with prints in repeat, and even sold some of my first designs with images of dilapidated castles and architectural ruins. Some 18 years later, it seems that I have come full circle, as earlier this year, I was asked by Liberty in London, to create a design for their Liberty Art Fabrics Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.
For this, I created an original art-work, ‘Wild Flowers of the British Isles’, which the designers at Liberty then photographed, and skilfully made into a repeat pattern. It has been an exciting journey, and I’m very pleased with the resulting design. Liberty have produced a beautiful print, which encompasses both the ‘Liberty’ and ‘Su Blackwell aesthetic.
Printed in four different colour-ways on tana lawn cotton, silk and cotton fleece.
The fabric will be available to purchase online www.sublackwell.co.uk/online-store/ I have a limited selection in stock. For the full range, go to wwww.liberty.co.uk
A press release will be available soon.
