100 Houses for Shelter

100 Houses for Shelter | Doodlers Anonymous

My buddy Paul Roberts is curating the 100 Houses exhibition, which brings together 100 image-makers, from illustrators to street artists, in support of housing and homelessness charity: Shelter. Each artist is given a 10-inch square and the theme "house" to come up with an original piece of art.

The results will be on show in Bristol's Tobacco Factory from November 16th-30th. All of the pieces will be for sale, and hopefully we can raise a significant contribution to the ongoing work of the charity Shelter, which helps people to find and keep a decent home.

I say 'we' because Paul has kindly asked me to take part, and I'm honoured to be involved. Some of my favourite artists are making pieces, and I'm equal parts excited and daunted to be featured alongside artists such as Jack Teagle, Marc Johns, Lizz Lunney, Gemma Correll, Brothers of the Stripe… The list goes on, and frankly the line-up is insane. The pictures here are sneaky peeks of the pieces by Mister Millerchip, Jon Boam, David Shillinglaw, Matt 'Lunartik' Jones and Loch Ness. The full line up will be announced soon and the website will be live in October, so if you can't make it to Bristol you can still view all of the work. More importantly you'll be able to buy all of the pieces in November and contribute to the work of a great charity, as well as getting a truly awesome piece of art! Follow Paul on twitter to keep up to date with everything 100 Houses.


  1. Sounds like fun to me. I will make sure I drop by and take a look. Do you have the full 100 artists yet. I would be interested to take part.
