Many Hands Olympic Collection

 (by Owen Gildersleeve) 

To celebrate the 2012 Olympics Many Hands have curated a splendid collection of Olympic/British themed artworks by a variety of exciting designers and artists. Here are a few of my favourites...oh and mine, which is vastly less good than everyone elses. For shame. It takes its inspiration from the Games' Ancient Greek origins and my favourite sport, swimming!

I just added a handful of odds and ends to flickr. I don't really use flickr much any more but I thought this stuff needed  home so thats where it ended up.

The Working Proof

I have a print for sale on The Working Proof. A portion of the profit will go to Médecins Sans Frontière. You can read a wee interview with my on the Working Proof blog here should such a thing take your fancy (also- inordinately large photo of my head anyone? anyone? No. Thought not)

'Nigel's Shoes'

A few years ago I wrote a children's book for my Mum's birthday and recently I completed one for my Dad too. 'Nigel's Shoes' is about a boy (my Dad) and his red, shiny shoes. It rhymes (as did my Mum's book) and features various little boy scrapes that I imagine my Dad and Uncle got into as children. Here are a few images from inside.
