Fame at last…

After our successful venture to Mannifest (see here) we were approached  as regards an interview for the Manx Independent, a newspaper on the Isle of Man. Being the fame hungry slack-jaw’s we are we jumped at the chance and proceeded to pour our hearts out to the inquisitive reporter.  After a little cajoling i even included a picture of us (well, it’s an illustration) but that was as far as i was willing to go. A street artist must do at least a little to protect his anonymity after all…

Keen eyed readers will note our plea to be big in Japan. If you could possibly help us sort this out please get in touch as we would sincerely love a trip to Japan – and everytime i think about it i can’t get the song ‘Big in Japan’ by Alphaville out of my head…

Cheers

The top of the article has been cut off due to the fact that it wouldn’t quite fit on an A4 scanner bed. The title for the piece is ‘Sholto and Hugo make their mark on London’ and comes from the Manx Independent on Friday 24th September 2010. Click on the image for a larger version.

They could be brothers…

I have always told Hugo that he was adopted. Now perhaps i have some hard evidence to prove it… It appears that he has more in common with Shepard Fairey that would seem apparent at first glance.

We never knew where Hugo came from but now it appears he must have been shipped over from the US (or maybe they were both born in the UK and Shep was taken to the US!) Not only do they both dabble in street art, they both have diabetes and they both fancy themselves as dj’s (although i’ve got to say that DJ Diabetic is a particularly uninspiring name!) Coincidence? I think not. Point proven. Case closed.

I have nicked one photo below but for more proof all you have to do is follow the link here
