Lost Nottingham 2018: NPF and Open Studios 2018

Lost Nottingham was a illustration/poetry project for Nottingham Poetry Festival 2018. It was also shown in Open Studios in May 2018.

The three banners were shown at Jermy & Westerman bookshop on Mansfield Road in April 2018 which has now sadly closed.

The theme was famous people and their connection to Nottingham that may be little known.

Here photos of the works. The actual poems can be found at

Summer 2014: Painting and Drawing – Nottingham Open


These two drawings were accepted and shown in the Nottingham Open 2014. These two pieces  were easily selected for my submission because they along with the large three part canvas below were the ONLY three pieces of work I completed in 2014.


James Elkins: Artists with PhDs illustrations

These are the final dozen illustrations as delivered to James Elkins for his 2nd Edition of Artists with Phds book (Published May 2014). It enabled me to successfully complete my M.A. by registered project for which I received a distinction in January 2014.

My thanks to James Elkins for a ‘revealing’ experience although I maybe now know more than I need to about Fine Art Phds and their academic validity:-)

Research: TTD STEAM Wimbledon September 2012: Mostyn Llandudno March 2012

Most of this summer when not dealing with my mother’s passing on 8th June has been spent working on presentations for a series of conferences. Full details available on my Research Blog

This has arisen from the drawn analysis of research I have been doing. Examples above. Full sequence of Moogee V Frayling available on blog or academia edu : http://nottinghamtrent.academia.edu/ShaunBelcher

I was also asked to be a ‘live scriber’ at the STEAM conference at Wimbledon College of Art and presented Moogee cartoons at a Humour conference at Mostyn, Llandudno in March 2012.
