♡C&T ♡

instagramrsvp_front_instasticker_insta I was so excited to be asked to design and paint my first ever wedding invitations. This also included RSVP's and little stickers to stick to the envelopes. I feel they turned out so well, and I even got sent pictures of people opening them and sending snaps to the bride. I'm super happy to be doing the place cards and more drawings for the actual weddings. For wedding enquiries email me! nyongalice@googlemail.com ♡

The ultimate personalised gift...

This year has been amazing for commissions. I have completed some amazing projects, and I really feel like I'm creating memories for people which makes me feel good. And the feedback I'm getting is great too! I am planning many more (as long as people keep asking me!) so do email me if you'd like one in the run up to the Christmas months. Here are a few recent paintings I've done for various clients...

Christmas is coming...

I have launched my Christmas cards! It feels like a long while away, and until this week I was clinging to sandals with the best of them, but if you're sending them far away it's great to prep. They are at my usual market price of £2.50 each and 5 for £10 everywhere! Just because I'm feeling festive. They're all printed from my original drawings and paintings, and A6...They will probably be a limited edition, and are available on Etsy or at My christmas markets this year. I will be at Etsy Made Local in Crouch End Saturday the 3rd of December, and Urban Makers East on Sunday 11th December.

Making Marks...

I can't believe I haven't shared images of my new project The Mark Makers on here yet. Perhaps because we are having too much fun drawing and making marks across London. You can find out about the project HERE and below are some images from the past two nights. The next one is in One Week's time, and you can buy tickets from the website.

Birthdays...Birthdays....Birthdays

I've been drawing lots of birthday cards, both for my own friends and for people who commission me. I feel like the approach you can take for someone on their birthday ranges loads, and it's great to experiement. At the top, I painted a cake for my mum, which I was super happy with. If you like cake themed offerings, visit my etsy and check out my TROPICAL CAKE CARD

To Market To Market

I had the pleasure of taking part in the Crafty Fox Market on Sunday, which is always a super fun day. I was selling my cards, original artworks, and some new NOTEBOOKS, which I'm excited about. It's actually great to debut new products to a market audience, and I think they went down really well. Fun all round. Look out for the books on my Etsy soon. Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 19.27.56.png

...The typo on the price list was swiftly amended! ;)

The next market I'm taking part in is Urban Makers East, on April 23rd at Mile End Ecology Pavilion 11 – 5pm. Come and say hi if you're around!

Granny

HOLLIE_GRANDMA

I was really touched to be asked to complete this commission, celebrating three generations 💗 Hollie was kind enough to give me a little back story behind the commission:

"A little back ground if you want, this was a picture was taken of granny about a year after she fell down some stairs and sustained a huge brain injury that basically changed her life. When she was able to leave the hospital she never returned home and went straight into a care facility where she spent a few months before she passed on the 12th September.

This picture was taken about 1month before she died, She was allowed back to our house on a day visit and we sat in the garden and I painted her nails and ate croissants!"

I really love my job sometimes! Thank you Hollie. alice@alicenyong.com for commission enquiries. 

The Mark Makers

POSTER_LOCKScreen Shot 2016-02-19 at 15.41.20LOGO I’m really excited to announce that I will be leading a new evening drawing workshop popping up in different fun venues across London. The workshop is called ‘The Mark Makers’ and will be ran by myself and Becky Noy.

The aim is to make the workshop fun, and non-stuffy, and a fun opportunity to spend the evening drawing and learning, using still life.  We want to give a new way of interpreting the traditional medium of still life, that you perhaps were forced to do at school, but incorporating exciting props, and fun exercises to help develop drawing skills. The ticket for the event will include a glass of booze, and a mini curated kit of materials to take away to get you drawing at home.

Becky, who has a background in making and sourcing props will spend time building an exciting modern still life which serves as a unique focal point as well as a drawing focus. While I will guide you through the workshop and the steps needed to work on and develop drawing skills and create your own work.

You will hopefully have a super fun evening, and leave with some great original artwork to take away, as well as a kit of materials and illustrated tips sheets for drawing at home and a thirst to learn more. The classes are great for all skill sets, whether you’re a master mark maker or a total beginner.

Our very first workshop is taking place at Lock Studios, in Haggerston. On Tuesday the 15th of March. (Lock Studios, UNIT 1, 66-68 De Beauvoir Cresent, London N1 5SB; a short walk away from Haggerston overground station…) running from 7.30-9.30pm. To book tickets please visit this link: http://www.themarkmakers.com/product/the-mark-makers-lock-studios

We also have an event in South London on April 26th 2016, at the nines Peckham. (Unit 9A Copeland Park, 133 Copeland Rd, London SE15 3SN) Which also runs from 7.30-9.30pm. Tickets will be onside soon at www.themarkmakers.com

We’re really excited about the project and it would mean a lot if you wanted to be involved! Thanks in advance!

Valentines

anteaterellies_vday Although I don't particularly go in for red roses, public meals or displays of affection surrounded by balloons and expectation on the 14th of February, I do like making cards. And this year I got to make a few, to serve the lovely fing of showing love. As well as my babe card which you can still buy on my etsy shop, I was also commissioned to make these little elephants for a really sweet valentines day card. For my own offering, I depicted an anteater cuddling someone's leg; a sight my valentine and I saw earlier this year at London zoo. There's no love like an anteater and his leg. I hope your day (and all your days) was full of love.
