Now then, what have we got here? This was a piece done for a friend’s birthday last weekend. Apart from having to venture into deepest North London to deliver it we had a lovely night out and it’s always nice to catch up with old friends. I’m sure i should do it more often.
‘Now then’ is the recipients favourite greeting/way to start a sentence so it just had to be included. And why not?
Title: Now then…

Like i’ve mentioned before it’s sometimes a little tough to say where inspiration for certain pieces come from and this is a pretty good example. Personally i blame the pernicious influence of TV and the internet – but then what do i know. Anyway it’s a picture of a little kid crying and the Japanese text says something along the lines of ‘Let loose the Banzai battle cry’. Put them together and this is what you get. That’s as far as i’m willing to go…
