Stephen Sutton - a true inspiration 
Autographed Print with Stephen Sutton
This month's limited edition print is extremely special for me. Last February I was invited to make a donation to the Macmillan De'Longhi Art Auction which takes place in September at the Royal College of Art.

About the same time a fan of my work got in touch to tell me the amazing story of Stephen Sutton and to ask if I might be able to help him fulfill one of his bucket-list wishes to have his portrait done.

Stephen was diagnosed with terminal cancer three years ago and he seemed like the perfect subject for a drawing in support of Macmillan Cancer Trust.

But it didn't seem right to exclude the Teenage Cancer Trust which Stephen is passionate about raising money for, so we decided to release my print of Stephen this month in advance of the drawing going to auction and for every print that's sold £100 will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.  

As an added bonus Stephen has autographed each of the prints and the Certificates of Authentication as well. You can view the original drawing and the prints from the 24th of June at the Albemarle Gallery. Or buy prints now directly from my website.


Goals & Mindset Course
Sunrise with Jim Rohn Quote
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that I'm a big fan of Jim Rohn and a strong believer in setting goals and personal development.

The past four months have been full of many incredible experiences, but they have also brought new challenges. I couldn't have handled all the demands and pressure without having quickly found a team to support me.

One of the most important people on that team is my business manager and coach, Kathryn Roberts. She has been offering courses and coaching to artists and business owners for years and I am happy to announce that she has agreed to offer a 15-day online Goals and Mindsetting workshop for my fans and supporters starting July 1st.

Whether you're an artist or not, I believe the material covered over these 15 days can be life changing. I hope you will join me and invest in your future happiness and success.

Inspired by

Others



Kelvin at de Lazslo house
Two self-portraits by Philip de Laszlo
I mentioned last month what an honour it was to be awarded the de Laszlo Prize for my drawing of Melvin.

Last week I had the further privilege to meet Damon de Laszlo and view many of the late Philip de Laszlo's stunning portraits.

If you aren't familiar with this Hungarian born artist who settled in England and became known for his portraits of royals and aristocrats you can learn more from the Philip de Laszlo Archive Trust.



Muse

Kelvin and Matt Bellamy

I can honestly not express my gratitude to the fans and collectors of my work. Matt Bellamy and his beautiful fiance, Kate Hudson recently purchased one of my drawings and late last month I was given the VIP treatment backstage at the MUSE concert.

It was truly a once in a lifetime, mind-blowing evening!




ASD HomeworkClub

I was the guest of honour and had the privilege of speaking to a great group of young people and parents at the African Sons and Daughters Homework Club a few weeks ago.

In addition to their thoughtful questions I received several original pencil drawings in thanks for my visit.
