White Horse – Stop! Thief!

One of our favourite local boozers, The White Horse, on Brixton Hill has recently suffered a spate of pick-pockets so we were drafted in to come up with some original signs for the purpose of informing people to keep their eyes on their belongings. I think the general idea was that some original signs, rather than the generic ‘Look out for pick-pocket’ signs, may hopefully get people to pay attention and look after their things a bit better. It’s a shame as it’s a friendly place but can get pretty busy on the weekends. I suppose it is London though after all so you’ve always got to keep one eye on the game…

For anyone wondering what a ‘tea leaf’ is – it’s cockney rhyming slang for ‘thief’. We printed them on textured ‘canvas’ paper for that extra classy look. Now we’ve just got to hope they don’t get robbed themselves…

Cheers

Blown away

I don’t think this chap looks all that upset seeing as he’s just been shot in the chest. But don’t worry. He’s an actor. Nobody was injured in the making of this piece. It’s all done with explosive squibs and fake blood. It just looks eerily convincing. What seems to be going through his mind, once again, is kittens, guns and bombs…

Cheers
