F*@k this for a game of soldiers

F*@k this for a game of soldiers

F*@k this for a game of soldiers

Another piece in the id-iom demolition sale and it’s starting at just 99p. Here’s the Ebay link

War! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again! – so sang Edwin Starr in 1970 on the anti-Vietnam song ‘War’ (which, i was interested to learn was originally recorded by The Temptations but not released as they didn’t want to alienate their more conservative fans). Whilst i have a lot of respect for our armed forces and the work they do it is generally political forces which dictate what they do and when – and this can sometimes lead to questionable decisions being made regarding their deployment. That’s all i really want to say on the issue as i think this piece largely speaks for itself…

A single level screen print with hand finishing. It’s A3 in size and signed on the reverse

Cheers

The funk of forty thousand years…

It’s amazing what a little musical inspiration, some cardboard and a camera can get you. I reckon this is a good case in point. There i was, minding my own business listening to Thriller on the stereo when the muse came down and whispered a plan in my ear. A short while later I had myself an authentic Michael Jackson gravestone and a zombie hand. A homage to Thriller it was to be.

I was originally intending to get this out on the anniversary of Jacko’s untimely demise but unfortunately Glastonbury got in the way so I present it now rather than wait until next time. You should definitely watch the video again in all it’s 14 minute glory. Top notch stuff.

Cheers
