Dream big & aim high

In these highly charged times when we’re bombarded with negativity just about constantly it’s sometimes nice to let my cold and cynical mind warm up just a little in a small attempt to remind myself that the world isn’t entirely a terrible place. 

After our series of Demotivational Posters I thought I’d dip my toe in the action on the other side. To that end I thought a simple message of positivity might cheer me up some. What I’m left with is an angry looking warrior woman and the legend ‘Dream big and aim high’. A slightly anarchic motivational poster for young feminists basically. I should probably just get ‘Smash the patriarchy’ on there and be done with it…

Anyway ‘Dream big’ is on A2 and comes available in 2 dashing colours. Drop us a line if you’d like to give either a new home.

Hindsight

It’s a beautiful thing isn’t it? Hindsight that is. If only I knew then what I know now, things would have been very different.

Frankie here can be a bit of a nightmare – as i’ve just found out. In passing one day I mentioned that she may make an interesting subject to paint and since then she just keeps turning up at the studio and taking her clothes off. I asked repeatedly to stop doing it but she kept saying she wanted to be painted. There was only so much of her hanging around drinking all the tea and eating all the biscuits before I had to relent and paint her anyway.

Afterward I told her about a nearby life drawing class and she’s now become a full time life drawing model. At least she seems happy now and people dropping by the studio no longer wonder why a naked woman is hanging around…

She is on A4 and made with the magic of imagination, smoke, pencil and acrylic.

Cheers

Turn up the speaker…

Hmmmm. What wise words can I impart about today’s offering? Well, sometimes art is all about a clever idea executed well and sometimes it’s just titillation. Today’s piece is firmly in the latter camp but sometimes we can do naught but follow the muse. 

I’m not quite sure what music is playing but it’s definitely bass heavy. That much is for sure. And the speaker goes up to 11. I’m pretty sure we can get away with a few extra decibels…

Scarlett

Coming up with a child’s name can be a tricky business. You’ve got to get it right as they’re stuck with it for life. John had been struggling with this process for months whilst his wife insisted, increasingly loudly, that he better come up with something really good if he’s taking this long. One popular method for naming babies in celebrity circles is the ‘Name child after where it was conceived’ method which is really quite self explanatory so John thought he’d head down this path.

After performing the necessary mental arithmetic and referring to the calendar on his phone John worked out it had probably been whilst they had been on a short break to the Isle of Man. There was a particular afternoon picnic which he thinks may have been the culprit. It all escalated a little quickly and could probably have got them arrested but was fun nonetheless.

He was still remininscing when a nurse popped her head into the waiting area and told him to get straight to the delivery room. As he entered the room his daughter was just making an appearance and the name he was searching for jumped straight into his head. ‘Scarlett!’ he shouted. It was lucky she turned out to have red hair…

A change is as good as a rest

Maker:0x4c,Date:2017-10-30,Ver:4,Lens:Kan03,Act:Lar01,E-ve

This young lady has decided that she’s in agreement with the old adage of ‘a change is as good as a rest’. Excited by the unseasonably warm weather we’re having she’s decided to shake things up a bit. Perhaps the lilac hair dye was a step too far but it just goes so well with her fancy new flowery top that she doesn’t care. We can check back on her in the spring time to see what new look she’ll be sporting then. Fashion moves ever onward.

T’was bright but t’was just a dream

clone tag: -2802617079357644386

If you’ve ever had a dream so real that upon waking you need to take a couple of minutes to work out exactly what’s going on then you’ve probably got some idea of the inspiration behind this piece. A half remembered memory of something that really never was…

This little lady is on a 60 x 60 cm canvas and has been made using the magic of spraypaint and imagination. Drop us a line if you’re interested in giving her a new home…

Cheers

Those who dance…

I like to think of this girl as gyrating round a pumping dancefloor with a mischievous look in her eye whilst she casts about for someone fun to dance with. She’s a basshead and lives for these brief moments of freedom through the medium of dance. It should be apparent by her the small tattoo on her head. The top she’s wearing is also something of a giveaway.

The title of ‘Those who dance…’ comes from a quote which is attributed to George Carlin and features next to our alluring basshead in my font du jour – Sans Forgetica.

A couple of versions of ‘Those who dance…’ are still available via Play Dead gallery until 16th Feb. They’re A2 and are £130 each if anyone wants to give them a new home.

Love
