Optimus Primary

Optimus Primary

Back in the day Transformers were definitely some of the best toys around. I’m going to gloss over the whole Michael Bay big screen version as an aberration that is best ignored. I’m talking about the 80’s cartoon version with the cool noise when they transform and their insatiable need for energon.

I can remember making my own Soundwave costume from cardboard although it was a bit beyond my mechanical prowess to actually make it transform (unlike the guy on the link below). Ah, those were the days…

The inspiration behind this one is the power of imagination we all used to have as children which allows you to play for hours with just about anything you find around you by subverting it’s boring everyday use and giving it a whole new role in life. She’s a one level screen print on A3 paper with unique hand finishing. Signed on reverse. Here’s the eBay link.

Maps have proved very useful over the years. Although I doubt this map will be guiding anyone anywhere again. Destiny has something entirely different in store for this particular map. She’s become art.

Now although I’ve never had my own stag do I’ve been on a few and I think one of the more poetic ways to describe it is ‘enterrement de vie de garçon’, which literally means ‘(the) burial of the life as a boy’. Now I’m not saying that is what actually happens but it has a nice sentiment all the same.

Drink, drugs and many other types of debauchery are acceptable, lap dances too – and all in the name of marriage. A lot of British stag do’s now travel away and a popular destination is Prague so i thought an old map of the region would do it justice.

She has been created using the magic of acrylic, ink, watercolour and charcoal, is 48 x 60cm in size and has been signed on reverse.
