The other side of Ed Org

Thousands of people who have visited artist Ed Org at craft fairs and shows around the country have seen his incrtedibly talented sketchworks and paintings of mythological characters and country scenes but did you know that there is another Ed Org out there hiding in plain sight on supermarket and off licence shelves? For many years Ed Org has been the “artist in residence” for the specialist creators of fine ales – Wychwood Brewery. He has designed many and varied colourful characters including the famous hobgoblin. Well, if all this is new to you then here’s a great sample of the amazing artwork from the other side of Ed Org finishing appropriately for the time of publishing this article with a Christmas motif that artist Ed Org designed and painted for Wychwood:

Have you ever wondeed what a famous artist’s studio looks like? I have seen many of them over the years and one thing is quite common. No matter whether the artist is tidy or untidy anywhere else, their studio is usually very organised even if sometimes in a way that isn’t readily obvious to someone else. As you can see below, Ed Org has the kind of environment to work in that you might suspect he’d have being one of the most talented artists anywhere right now. You might notice that unlike many artists, the pictures on the wall are not all his own work. If you are familiar with the work of many artists you might know whose work it is he has on the wall. If you think you know, then write a comment and we’ll tell you if you are right. On the other hand, if you have been living in another galaxy for some years and aren’t yet familiar with Ed Org’s work then you can have a look at the many amazing pictures he has drawn and/or painted here.
