Blair’s design features a standard kind of white lighthouse on the bottom with a large amount of little creatures bursting out the lighthouse on the top half. He thinks the little guys and gals represent the multiculturalism in the North and how people of all colours, shapes and sizes help to Light the North and make it an amazing place to be.
Blair is an artist/illustrator and designer from Dundee. He has a degree in Applied Graphic Design. He goes by the moniker ‘Creature Emporium’. His artistic style is bold and bright, fun and involving. It’s sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. Blair has worked on all the Dundee artists trails: Oor Wullies Bucket Trail, Maggie’s Penguin Parade and the 2019 Big Bucket Trail with his creations making over £25,000 for the various charities. Last year he worked on the public art project ‘Reformation’. This included overseeing the painting of cobbles in Reform Street, Dundee and he hosted the public involvement section, where he invited the general public to come forward and help to paint his design. For this project the group were nominated for the Scotland National Youth Work Awards in the Time to Shine Arts & Creativity category, and they won the award! Blair hosts an art class at Forgan Arts Centre called ‘Skate and Rejuvenate’, which involves the upcycling of old broken skateboards into wonderful artworks. Aside from this he sells his artwork online. Everything from skateboard art to painted canvases, limited edition prints to one-off commissions.
