Chutney Chorus update

Here's what's going on or coming up for Tanya:

1. Lead 2D design for the Natural History Museum show Sensational Butterflies, a live butterfly show held in the grounds of the museum. It runs from the end of March until mid-September 2017. 

2. Various projects for Museum of London. These include animated GIFs and print design to market talks and events, and teachers' packs for the education team. 

3. Working alongside Alice Graham (curator/project manager), she is working on Agatha Christie: A Life in Photographs. This is the third leg of the tour, showing at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff from June 2017. 

p.s. We've added our 2017 New Year's greetings anime to our GIF page. Look out for the spinning rooster head and you've found it:

What Tanya has been up to:

• Early in the year Tanya retouched/re-drew the lead image for the current temporary show at Horniman Museum and Gardens.
•  She's just finished a project for the Learning team at the Museum of London. The brief was to create designs and written guidelines for schools' activity packs. The resulting suite of resources can be pulled together by an artworker and adapted for any age and activity.
• She finally has an Instagram page! Her first post was an appliqué piece – her love of which has been revived while being dazzled/humbled by the needlework of our latest client Deborah Tallentire.

What Mike has been up to:

• Mike is pitching an illustrative product range to a client - we've got our fingers crossed and will keep you updated if and when things take off.

What we've both been up to:

• Having committed to an open studio event in June, we're busy building, drawing, cutting and sticking.
• We realised we've built up quite a portfolio of animated GIFs but we've never made one for a client. If you're a client looking for a playful, stylish GIF, take a look at our work and get in touch:

Chutney Chorus update

Things are busy in the studio. Here's what's going on or coming up:

1. Horniman Community Engagement team: the ever-inventive Horniman Museum are running a series of anthropology workshops for South Londoners. They commissioned us to create a recruitment flyer and a series of 18 postcards each showing a choice item from their collection. The postcards are mailed to the participants over 6 weeks. The content of the postcards is a surprise so we'll share our designs once the project is complete.

2. I'm currently working on another Horniman Museum project, the new membership identity and campaign. This involves posters, membership cards, banners, window vinyls and the like … more once the scheme is launched.

3. In the pipeline: I'll be assisting RAA who are heading up a capital project for Lincoln Castle. Dates TBC. The castle was built by William the Conqueror in 11th century which will make for some very exciting content. 

Don't forget you can still see my work at the Imperial War Museum: Horrible Histories®, Spies exhibition. It opens from July 2013 – Jan 2014 then re-opens in July 2014 – Jan 2015. My original blog post below.
