With my return to my most neglected blog (internet issues to blame!) I am starting the year with my first Tuesday Treats of 2012 with the magical work of Mark Demsteader. This UK artist creates the most incredible drawings and paintings. I am in awe of each piece - it is the application of the turbulent brushstrokes against the delicacy of the depiction of the skin, not to mention the beautiful pastel drawings. I could go on... and on... and on... But looking at them is much better than me trawling on. Mmmmm just stunning.

Hi all...
So I'm here to do a bit of shameless favour asking ... I have entered the above illustration in the Secret 7" compeition; brought together by Universal Music and Talenthouse in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust; to design an original piece of artwork for 7" vinyl inspired by a chosen song of a selection of artists. I chose to Illustrate Florence + the Machine; other artists include Bombay Bicycle Club and DJ Shadow.
If you feel like being lovely to me simply click here or the link below the illustration and click 'Support Hazel' and post to facebook - voting will begin in 3 days. There's been some amazing work entered so far, so it's definitely worth a look.
