You had me at whagwan

Today on eBay we have ‘You had me at whagwan’. Click the link below to check it out below:

Since living in Brixton I’ve become enamoured with the phrase ‘Whagwan’. For the uninitiated, the phrase means ‘what’s going on’ in Jamaican Patois. The spelling can vary but the meaning doesn’t change. 

Anyway, once I’d combined that with a nice little romantic statement and a bit of traditional Claddagh ring design, hey presto, I had this little declaration of love for Brixton. Then it was just a matter of adding it to the messy ‘graffiti wall’ style background and, by jingo, you’ve got it!

Cheers

Brixton – you had me at whagwan…

Since living in Brixton I’ve become enamoured with the phrase ‘Whagwan‘. For the uninitiated, the phrase means ‘what’s going on’ in Jamaican Patois. The spelling can vary but the meaning doesn’t change. Anyway, once I’d combined that with a nice little romantic statement and a bit of traditional Claddagh ring design, hey presto, I had a fully formed idea that, after a little further work, became this little declaration of love for Brixton. Happy Valentine’s Day Brixton!

Wha’ Gwan?

‘Wha’ gwan?’ is a phrase often heard around our neck of the woods so i thought i’d do a little tribute to our Jamaican bredren. I have always liked the sound of patois although it can sometimes be a little difficult to understand. I will probably do another little post once this has hit the streets but i haven’t quite decided where it should go yet. I’m pretty much spoiled for choice around Brixton but a good placement would be ideal.

I thought it only fair to include a Lion of Judah on there too as a nod to Haile Selassie (we have cut a stencil of him before as part of our celebrity heads series – see here).

Jah Rastafari!
