After our initial trip to Southport for the inaugural UpNorthFest earlier in the year we had a few wheatpastes left which we didn’t manage to get round to pasting up. So instead we send them up to Optik Nerve – our man on the scene in Southport – who kindly agreed to get them up for us. Many thanks to him for getting them up and getting some photos for us.
As Southport pier is the second longest pier in the UK (after the 2km pier in Southend-on-Sea) we decided on the slightly tongue in cheek slogan of ‘Never mind the length, feel the quality’ above a stencilled image of sunrise at the pier. Surely Southport tourist board couldn’t have done better themselves?
We haven’t posted all that much in the last couple of weeks but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy – ‘cos we have! We have done a design for an invite to a Channel 4 event which is so top secret that we aren’t even allowed to post a version of the image (even after the event) in case the bad man finds out about it and we have also been commissioned to do some ‘interior decoration’ at a brand new bar that is opening in Brixton soon. Hopefully we’ll have some more details about this soon as they are due to open in a month or so and we need to get some top quality designs together before then. We’ve also got a couple of 1m x 1m commissions on the go which have been taking up a fair wedge of our time recently. I’m hoping we’ll have some results in the next few days…
So after that little catch up we now move onto the weather. July in the UK eh? You’ve just got to love it. For the past few days we’ve been aiming to hit the streets with a little music inspired intervention but the weather keeps beating us to it. With any luck we’ll have some decent weather again before winter kicks in…
Anyway, onto today’s piece. Surely everyone likes a pretty girl who is flashing (her smile i mean, obviously) at them? Well I for one certainly do and i’m pretty sure i’m not alone. I’ve added just a little colour on this one but wanted to keep it minimal. Maybe i’ll add a bit more to the next one…
