The Wasp has Landed (mural)


“To break new boundaries, you need to cope with some adversity!!!”

How would you cope with a wasp trapped in your space helmet? You calmly reach for a swatter.

This project was the first of three wall murals I did for Beam Works, a shared hot desking studio space for freelance creatives in the heart of Castleton Mill in Leeds.

Sue, the operations manager, wanted something that revolved around ‘inspirational quotes’ to motivate people during their working day, and also to bring a little humour. I researched and agreed what the quotes should be and then I went to work designing a different visual narrative for each one, incorporating the colours from the Castleton Mills pallette.

From the reaction of the guys who share the space, the murals definitely raised a smile and made their new studio surroundings a better environment for their creative purposes.
