INKY CONDITIONS is an ongoing project by artist and illustrator Stevie Mitchell, owner of Picture Window design studio in Derbyshire, England. Drawing from his love of storytelling and old comics, Stevie has created captioned drawings, comic strips, illustrated verse and everyday tales into a series of inky pictures. Each piece begins life hand drawn with ink and brush.
This INKY CONDITIONS site is a showcase for the project’s output as it develops. Along with a growing gallery of inky works, it’s also the place to see a sizeable sample of the worded illustration series, ANYWHERE HERE IS FINE; a loving catalogue of the mundane magic of everyday life.
Catch INKY CONDITIONS at this year’s Wirksworth Festival. The long-established Derbyshire Dales arts event is one of the most vibrant showcases for contemporary art to be found in rural England. It takes place throughout September 2018, with INKY CONDITIONS exhibiting and selling current and all-new work at the Arts Trail on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th.
