Orlando Weeks has launched a new collaborative art project.
Launching this afternoon, it features a number of art cards designed by the likes of Japanese House, Sports Team and Wolf Alice using a template inspired by Orlando’s debut solo album ‘A Quickening’.
A total of 140 illustrations will go on sale from 3pm today, 21st October, on a first-come-first-served basis from orlandoweeks.com, for £40 each to benefit the Music Venue Trust.
Orlando says: “Everyone involved recognises how crucial UK Venues of every shape and size are! They are where we go to commune and celebrate and sing and spill drinks together. These cards are a small gesture of thanks for the pleasure and opportunity that venues and their staff, up and down the country, have given so many of us.”
