Adidas shop in Carnaby Street

An artist who is painting another elephant invited me to a project to paint on the wall of Adidas shop in Carnaby Street. I did work on paper and it will be glued on the wall.

This is the piece. 75cm×75cm。

Seems I like this character very much. Now I'm gonna use this for a college project 'Different Formats'.
The project was very open and I could do draw anything but I put Adidas trainers on him anyway.

This is the first one before Candy Floss Boy.

I spent whole day to get paper outside and draw until midnight but I stopped drawing in the middle of process because the composition, the line, and the colours are all bad. Finally I drew simply with black and white on brown paper which has been in my room and the result was nice.
Design (Selection) is difficult to find and reach the achievement even if it is just a simple thing. I think a person who does it naturally and just with sense is a genius.

Paul showed me an image of the brochure of the Adidas event and the biography of me was 'I like to draw and sleep.', one in 'About' section on my website. The organiser of Brighton exhibition used that as well. It's funny people take the very short non-energy bio.

This is the very small version of the picture. I can do better on small scale
