In the weeks running up to Christmas 2010, I spent 8 days in Barnsley town centre working in Pod 4; an empty shop unit opposite the outdoor market. The installation was commissioned by BMBC, with a remit to transform the space and engage the public. The installation includes paintings and cardboard, large canvas prints, chalk slate drawings, soft sculptures, photographic portraits and a series of cardboard box paintings. All the images were captured by Richard Hanson

The 24 hour Drawathon - a selection of images made in the first 5 hours of the 'Drawover' at the I Love West Leeds Shop in Armley, Leeds. Artist Lou Sumray and I created several drawings of passers by, as they went about there business - a great experience, another great project with Lou, and over 60 new Fabric Lenny drawings to boot! Hurrah!

Friday the 10th saw the first day of an exciting installation project at Pod 4, an empty town centre shop unit in the heart of Barnsley. I have seven days to create and install 'an exhibition' within the space, which I am calling Fabric Lenny Land for now. I have so far had the help and support of an amazing group of people, including Yvonne Roberts, Lou Sumray, and Anna Connor. The shape of the space is starting to come together with a couple of large acrobatic rabbits, paintings on cardboard, drawings on slate, and behind the scenes an army of fabric rabbits! More to come! All photographs by Richard Hanson.
