Steal this painting

Steal this painting (yellow)

Steal this painting (green)

Abbie Hoffman’s 1971 ‘Steal this book‘ epitomised the counter-culture mentality of the 60’s and went on to detail ways one could fight the man. As homage to the enduring spirit of the counter-culture and the continuing need to stick it to the man we’ve shamelessly appropriated the cover design and given it a little id-iom twist before releasing them back into the world..

I still can’t quite decide what’s the best way to use these… I think the obvious thing to do would be to drop them on the street somehow and see how long they last before someone makes off with them.

It’s an eminently thievable A3 in size and comes from an edition of 2. They’ve been completed using the magic of screen printing, spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.

Seeing something strange

Seeing something strange

Seeing something strange

I seriously can’t wait for Spring time to actually make an appearance. I’ve spent too long on my own at home making up pictures as a result. I definitely need to get out more…

I came up with this as some kind of accompaniment to a friend’s story about a dream he’d had which involved an extended hallucinogenic experience. He still looked crazier than a thimble full of baby snakes while he was telling me.

It is A2 in size and is made using the magic of acrylic paint and charcoal . Signed on reverse.

Winter is coming!

Winter is coming!

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.

Girl O’Dreams

Girl O’Dreams

Girl O’Dreams (x4)

It’s been a while since i’ve been in the situation this chap finds himself in. He’s done all he can; got himself dressed up nice, got some flowers and found himself the right door to knock on. From here on in it’s no longer in his hands and the best he can do is put his best smile on and pretend he’s all confidence (which, he’s been informed, the ladies love). I can only wish him the best of luck…

He’s from an edition of 5 and is an eminently frameable A4 in size and has been completed using the magic of screen printing, paint pens, spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.
