Turning Phil Collins quotes into art in order to try and exorcise him from my thoughts was my initial aim with this series but it now seems to have taken on a life of its own. Today’s ‘No Context Required’ piece sees Phil’s somewhat philosophical quote about wishing you were somebody else collocated with Games of Thrones star Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark). She’s not in character in this design but I’ve helpfully given a hint to her character with her mash-up t-shirt featuring the Direwolf logo from the House of Stark in Game of Thrones and the Stark Industries logo from Marvel’s Iron Man.
Once you’ve liberally sprinkled a few more pilfered logos into the quote and adorned it with a delightful grey & blue background then you’re good to go with another successful ‘No context required’ piece. It’s laser engraved on wood then hand painted and stands proud at 39 x 26cm. Drop us a line if you’re interested…
The crown that sits upon the soul is enough to ruin one and all. Howzat for a hefty and pretentious title? I just thought if I start the post off sounding clever and literary then I can just take it downhill from there. Old Jimmy 3 crowns here has been having bad dreams as he’s been watching too much Game of Thrones and wakes up thinking that he’s going to become the next king of Westeros and meet a particularly grisly fate after a series of increasingly poor decisions. Or maybe I should rename the piece ‘Soul crown’ as that has a more jazzy ring to it then I can do a post which would probably be more about soul music. I’m undecided on the whole issue. Or perhaps I’m just making it all up as I go along in order just to write some accompanying text. Sometimes even I’m not sure…

Winter is coming!
Winter is coming! Fancy popping over to Winterfell for a spot of dinner?
Can you guess who’s just been watching the first two seasons of Game of Thrones? This piece started out as something completely different and somehow morphed into a Christmas card from The House of Stark. I think there’s something a little ominous about it, a bit like it is warning of things to come. I realise it’s a bit late for Christmas but with season 3 on the way it still seems quite fitting.
She’s A3 in size and has been completed using the mediaeval magic of spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.
