The time is now

The time is now

The time is now

I met this guy once, his name Alfredo and to call him strange is putting it very mildly. Crazier than a box of frogs, dafter than a suitcase full of cats and dafter than a barrel full of elephants are all things you could use to describe him and you still wouldn’t be close. He really is the king of the crazy talk and proud of it too, which then makes you wonder if he’s crazy at all but then he goes and does something which again just goes and proves his utter strangeness.

It’s A2 in size and is made using the magic of watercolour, acrylic, ink and paint pen. Signed on reverse.

Here is the ebay link

Lightning Bolt

Lightning Bolt

So here’s our latest piece on slate called ‘Lightning Bolt’ which is now framed up and good to go. This will be exclusively for sale at the Herrods pop up shop – which is open for this week only at 95/96 Lower Marsh St near Waterloo.

I think perhaps the colour palette and background stencils were subconsciously inspired by Olympic superstar Jamaican Usain Bolt. Although I haven’t got a particularly good reason for printing a skeleton on there other than the fact i thought it looked good. I particularly like how when printing on slate you get a grungy look to the print due to imperfections on the surface of the slate – which I think gives it a little more character. Hopefully it will get snapped up this week and we won’t have to bring it back home with us…

Cheers
