Fundraising auction for Changes Bristol

lisa lloyd paper

Changes Bristol has been running mental health peer support meetings in the City of Bristol for over 12 years. Their meetings are safe places for people to come and talk about their feelings and to take steps toward improving their lives.

I was asked if I could create a chameleon to represent how it feels to struggle with mental health, the design will be used to raise money for the charity. There will be a blind auction to win a signed print at an event in Bristol on the 8th July. For more details about the event click here.

Final model for approval

Final model for approval

I start by sculpting the paper into the basic form of the blue tit using photographic images for reference. My client had a very clear brief that the bird had to be facing to the right and also fit nicely within the square format they use for the magazine cover.

Once the main body was created I then spent some time cutting out the individual elements by hand and feathering them with the scalpel. I felt it was important that the feathers were all different so that it retained a really handmade natural feel.

The client then needed to approve the final model before I set it up for shooting.

Spencer Jones is a very talented, bonkers comedian. I'm a big fan so I was chuffed when he asked me to design his flyers and posters for his Edinburgh show: 'The Herbert in Proper Job.' I took his concept and photographs and worked them up for him. The poster has been entered into the comedy poster awards- please vote for us!
