Always read the label

Now here’s an adage that i couldn’t agree with more. ‘Always read the label’ is one of the sound bits of advice that plenty of people choose to ignore until it’s a little too late. Usually it’s referring to Ikea cabinets or medicines or somesuch but in this case it’s pertaining to the young lady with ‘Danger!’ prominently emblazoned on her top.

Always read the label A3 print edition (of 5)

Always read the label print edition (of 5)

It was Thursday last week when we were contacted by Global Street Art and asked if we’d be interested in decorating some hoardings on Saturday just 20 mins from home down Elephant and Castle way. As we’re now smart enough to have something ready on standby for just such an occasion we leapt at the chance and opted for a large scale adaptation of a design we’d done a small A3 edition of a short while ago (if anyone is interested I think we still have a few of them left!) Due to the size of the space and the fact we had all day to do it we decided to go for one of our chaotic layered backgrounds rather than a plain one as per the original design. There was certainly enough traffic passing by and plenty were happy to stop and see what we were up to. Towards the end of the day we managed to convince Hicks it was a good idea to extend his piece into ours slightly which I think gives better continuity to the whole wall. All in all it was a great day and the icing on the cake was a mere 15 drive back home. Winner.

And here's a little bonus from our personal stash. Our little helper for the day. He was usefully suggesting placement and colour options for us. He came back later with his ladyfriend and posed for some shots. We couldn't have done it without him...
