My design for a Wenlock mascot as part of the 2012 Olympics 'Strolls Discovery' trail in London along with other artists. My theme was film and covers the following genres of cinema: Film Noir, Action & Adventure, Sci-Fi, Westerns and Period Dramas.
It was on public display in Leicester Square for the duration of the Olympics and Paralympic games and was auctioned for charity with a final bid of £5925. My thanks to Sarah Jane at Wild in Art for the opportunity and to Shirley & Arthur who provided the photos below.
More images can be found by googling Filmstar Wenlock.
Here is the official text from the site:
Lights, camera, action! I'm feeling very glamorous waiting on the red carpet to attend the première of a new film. Will Filmstar Wenlock see anyone famous today in Leicester Square? Filmstar Wenlock's exclusive wardrobe is by artist Mark Harrison, a freelance illustrator and painter with over 15 years experience.
