It’ll be alwhyte

You’ve probably never heard of Whyte Investigations. And that’s just the way P.I. Helen Whyte likes it. She would definitely prefer you to keep her name out of your mouth. Not because she’s liable to slap you for it but because if too many people require her services then it’s a sure fire indicator there’s a serious paranormal event incoming. And that can be problematic.

The fact she’s the best paranormal investigator in the UK (possibly the World) could be down to the fact that she’s equal parts Columbo and Sam Spade or it could be down to the posse of crows that follow her everywhere and are her eyes and ears as she investigates whatever dodgy activity is going down. 

‘It’ll be alwhyte’ is A3 in size and made using paint pen, acrylic, charcoal and a one colour screen print. It’s available in our shop or you can always get in touch directly.

The lack of money is the root of all evil

The lack of money is the root of all evil - A3 print

I used a smaller version of this design on the Paperwallet we did a while ago and decided that I liked this quote enough to reproduce it on a larger scale. According to the all knowing power of the internet the quote ‘the lack of money is the root of all evil’ is attributed to both George Bernard Shaw and Mark Twain. After a little more digging I still can’t seem to come up with the answer. They were both around at the same time so maybe one said it, the other affirmed it and it has therefore been attributed to both. They clearly didn’t have the internet back then so information must have spread a lot more slowly and it’s whilst it’s possible they both came up with it independently I would rather believe that one simply repeated the quote he’d somehow heard from the other and it was therefore attributed to both in posterity. Maybe one of them was some kind of professional quote thief? Who knows?
