Painting Clive Pig's Guitar

Friday, June 23, 2017

Lee Hodges covers the international storyteller's guitar with images of his tales.

Clive Pig delivers world stories in an original and dynamic way and asked Lee to decorate his guitar with snippets from his tales. Lee explains, "The aim was to bring his guitar to life with his stories, so as he tells his tales they unravel rhythmically before your eyes, he is visiting many colourful lands, so the idea was to create something that wasn't too culturally specific but could capture the magic and colour of any culture."

"Lee Hodges comes from deepest, darkest Kernowfornia – also known as Cornwall. The sea and coastline have always been a part of his life, and today he lives on the foothills of Dartmoor, in Devon. In addition to his vibrant, mixed media illustration work, Lee is also likes to DJ and runs club arts nights in the Southwest of England. He loves to explore and experiment with a range of creative media, but drawing was his first love and that’s what drives him as an illustrator. Music, folklore and Latin culture are major sources of inspiration for Lee, in particular the striking imagery surrounding Dia de los Muertos. Lee's recent work has included commissions from world re-nowned establishments such as The Lincoln centre of performing arts in New York, the RHS society, Readers Digest, several big editorials, festival artworks and posters word wide."

To celebrate and advertise the Lincoln Center Out of Doors event, Lee Hodges creates some vibrant poster art.

Lincoln Out of Doors is a huge free music festival held in New York at the well renowned Lincoln Center of Performing Arts. Lee's brief was to create the artwork for the festival to be used on the festival brochure, website, posters and all advertising plus two 50 foot banners on the corner of Broadway and Columbus Avenue! Lee says "The diversity of the audience meant that the artwork needed to appeal to a huge ethnic and age range,  the artwork needing to instantly appeal and pull in the crowds. After a series of several sketches the bird idea was chosen, representing the uplifting, celebratory tone and the elements of music, spoken word and dance." The event begins on July 22nd and runs until August 9th.
