Here are some of the information leaflet covers I was commissioned to design for the sayle gallery, I also designed some signage for the outside, which I will post once I've photographed it. I'd also like to point out that I designed the gallery's logo, that was based on one of the late Norman Sayles abstract landscape paintings in 2007

As well as having two images in the awesome Bute space gallery in Cardif, I also have three images in the Sale gallery Christmas show (of which I also designed the poster for) the show will be on alongside David lloyds solo show to mark the grand opening of the gallery at it's larger new premises.

Though the credit crunch has pretty much destroyed most of my freelance work of late, here is a piece that I did for this Saturday's Guardian, I'm pretty pleased with it and it was nice to work with a different format, instead of a square.

For awhile now I've been wanting to have a crack at trying some more digital artwork, so since I currently have no major jobs on and all my gallery work is taken care of, and i so desperatly need a break from the 100 paintings (of which I've done 65 now) I thought i'd give it a crack, so here we are the first f some old drawings I've coloured on photoshop.

Okay, since I have no reached the halfway point of my colossal project of 100 paintings (thats right I've managed 50 in 2 months) I thought I'd give a sneak look at just a few, I have a few hush hush things going on at the moment, involving this project (should be able to update on that net week) as well as secret projects involving zombies, comics and Yee!

Well this is what started my current mamath mission of 100 paintings, 100 drawings, the show was a huge success and though people loved the drawings it was the fact that I'd produced so many that gave it the wow factor. each drawing was 10cm wide and 15cm tall and were presented in clear plastic with an oversized mount. on a side note 100 unframed drawings is a pitch to display and took up alot more space than I had thought.

well, things have been very busy over the last month or so, I had some work in an exhibition at ronaldsway airport on the Isle of Man, I've completed the bulk of the work on the zombie book with Yee (that was a good two months of working on nothing else but that). I'll post some stuff from that very soon.
The Sayle gallery (where a lot of my work appears) has closed for the summer getting ready for its big reopening in its new larger premises in the fall, I've just started work on illustrations for a music book with the Manx heritage foundation. I'm still producing illustrations for the guardian weekend magazine, the next one is in on the 19th so look out for that one.
and as a follow up to my "100 drawings" exhibition, I've just completed painting no. 1o for an exhibition of 100 paintings in feb 09 at the Sayle gallery. so yeah its all mad at the moment.
oh and if life wasn't complicated enough, I've just moved house.

I should really mention about the project that has been eating up all of my time at the moment, I'm currently working on a graphic novel with the mazing Yee Ting Kuit, I'm just getting ready to stat the final chapter today, one omleted i will have drawn 160 pages, by far the largest body of work that both yee and I have ever done.
well I'll post some images soon, what this book is about is zombies and other horific things though i should say that its a comedy and faily light hearted but also its fairly ironic too.
you can see some of Yee's work on the link bar to the right.

I think this was the first image I did during my residency, I remember being really pleased with it because I had to do the whole thing with the general public watching me, I was quite nervous when I began the residency at the gallery and did find it hard to get used to people watching me. this image is mixed media: Acrylic, collaged paper, photos of leaves and newspaper
.... at the beginning of course. As a lot of you will know, My name is Juan Moore and I graduated from Falmouth college of arts (now university college Falmouth)in 2006 with a first class BA (Hons) degree in illustration. So what happened next I hear you ask. Well since graduating my work has appeared all over the place really, from the Guardian newspaper to fine art galleries, I'll post some artwork later on.
In 2007 I had my first solo exhibition of 67 artworks of which I managed to sell over 60 of them, not bad for someone that no one has ever heard of before. Anyway the whole point of this blog really is to try and get more work, and to show people what I'm up to with out having to spend six weeks building a new website and loosing my mind in the process.
