LICAF "Wish You Were Here" postcard project.

Here's my contribution to the Lakes International Comic Art Festival's "Wish You Were Here" project. It was an honour to be featured alongside such a stellar group of artists - Bill Morrison, Sean Phillips, Dave Gibbons, Bryan Talbot,Steven Appleby and Sarah McIntyre & Philip Reeve.

You can read more about the project and see all the postcards HERE.

I was determined that I wouldn't draw Castlerigg until I'd visited. What a place! Here's some preliminary sketches.

Aira Force Timelapse

Jonathan Edwards - Aira Force Watercolour Time Lapse from Jonathan Edwards on Vimeo.

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival commissioned a short film which follows the process of my Aira Force watercolour painting from initial location sketches to final painting. I spent 7 hours in a dark room in Kendal while a camera took a photo every 5 seconds (I was completely unaware of it after the first 6 hours!). Thanks to Julie Tait, Leigh Beavis and Matt Burke. Thanks too to the brilliant Sion Glyn (Santiago) for allowing me to use 2 of his tracks on the video. Diolch yn fawr, Sion! You can buy Sion's album HERE.

My Aira Force painting is available as a print HERE.
