Give me a London girl every time (front)
Give me a London girl every time (back)
As Chas n Dave sang in their 1983 song ‘London Girls’:
Give me a London girl every time,
I’ve gotta find one I’ve made up my mind
This particular specimen of London female appears to be from somewhere near Kennington and despite the fact she’s green, has grey hair and a red nose you can see she’s got music in her eyes. What more could a man want?
I came across this little beauty during a little tidy up. She was tucked down the side of a portfolio and was actually created a short while ago and we somehow managed to neglect her – until now! It’s on a section of a 1980’s South London bus timetable and was created using the magic of stencils and screen printing. It’s an eminently frameable 15 x 20 cm in size and is now on eBay. It’s even got our id-iom stamp of approval screen printed on the back so you can relax safe in the knowledge it’s an authentic id-iom product.

The rest of the band on the other hand can move around the stage thrusting their hips which are usually poured in to tight jeans which send their adoring fans crazy. This picture though is based on a little something i noticed after one too many gigs…
It is A2 in size and is made using acrylic paint. Signed on reverse.
