Photos from Paper Idols

Paper Idols opened at Alfred Bar in Meanwood, Leeds last weekend, and myself and Kat Archibald welcomed lots of guests to the opening party in the lovely cosy alpine style bar.

The exhibition will still be on until February 28th, so there’s plenty of time to get down there for a beer or coffee and to check out the prints. It’s a really welcoming pub, kids and dogs are allowed, and they have a great range of drinks.

All our prints are available to buy for just £20. If you reserve the prints that are hanging on the wall, you get to keep the frame and collect it from Alfred from March 1st. Free frame! Otherwise you can simply buy online and get your unframed print posted out to you for the same price.

The celebrities that Kat and I chose to paint and draw are all people who are close to our hearts – hence the special Valentine’s themed exhibition! We included a few famous couples too (both romantic and platonic love!). There’s Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife Beth Chapman, there’s Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Mulligan and O’Hare (Vic and Bob!) and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, plus others.

I can’t believe that Kat and I have been friends for so long, and not had a joint exhibition before now! She’s really great, check out her work at katsillustration.com/
