My winning competition entry – Kentish Town
It was great to see my art work going up on a hoarding for a new art house cinema in Kentish Town last week, as one of the winners of a local art competition. After living in the area for 2 years (I moved back to Oxford this summer) it was really nice to have left my mark in London.
The brief was to choose your favourite film and produce a black and white film flyer for it. Now, as an adult, when you are asked for your favourite something or other – it is quite hard! The first film that came to mind was Dirty Dancing (much to my husband’s dismay!) – but it was a film I watched a lot in my past, it’s a feel good movie, and I really love the cheesy music.
I created my entry by producing lots of quick, A2 charcoal drawings while listening to the music from the film. So they are an expression of the music and how I feel about it. I entered a few and this one was the winning entry – it’s called ‘She’s Like The Wind’.
I was very proud that mine was the only abstract / arty picture there – all the other entries were using graphic design. The only thing with mine is it doesn’t say what film it’s from – so people will be left guessing!

Cheesy group shot of most of the artists!
The exhibition – which covers the hoarding of the art house cinema which has just started to be built – will be up until about April next year so do pop along – there are 15 great entries to see. And hopefully they won’t get graffiti all over them!
