Warning! If you see this lady it’s best to steer clear. She may look like she has love in her eyes but she’s not what she appears to be. Whilst she looks like butter wouldn’t melt she is, in fact, the modern reincarnation of the ancient Norse deity Odin. She no longer has her ravens but instead has two new birds to whisper in her ear who are the incarnations of Huginn and Muginn – Odin’s messengers and spies. Exactly what the man sticking his tongue out and the other gentleman with the ‘Bugger! Wrong picture again’ sign are meant to mean is open to interpretation but there is surely some reason for them being there. What is it all meant to mean?
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. Despite her dubious attractions to ignore such advice can only lead to trouble…
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…
Danger Girl t shirt (L)
After doing a few t-shirts a while ago I thought I’d give it another go with some new designs to see how they came out…
Here we have ‘Danger Girl’ printed on high quality light blue cotton t-shirt. It’s a large in size and the the t-shirts are a standard fit. These are one-off t’s that have been screen printed and also have hand finishing in the form of stencils, spraypaint and fabric pens so are all unique. I would suggest they are probably hand washed to ensure longevity of the design. If you aren’t going to do that they should wash okay inside out but i’m not promising anything…
Here is the eBay link.

Always read the label (pink)
Always read the label (x4)
So, whilst we’ve been busy getting stuff on eBay we’ve also been tinkering away with some new stuff..
‘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 medicines or somesuch but in this case it’s pertaining to the young lady with ‘Danger!’ on her top. Despite her dubious attractions to ignore such advice can only lead to trouble…
She’s from an edition of 5 and is an eminently frameable A3 in size. She’s been completed using the magic of screen printing, paint pens, spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.
