Last but not least is Stone & Spear on how a childhood collision with a grandfather clock has influenced his favourite print…
‘Tee Hee’ - Stone & Spear / Giclee Print
Tee Hee print. This print makes me laugh because it’s just a bit ridiculous. It has a mythical aspect, and also feels like it’s moving because of the cogs. It’s loosely based on the face of a grandfather clock. When I was small I jumped out of my pram in a shop and smashed my head on a grandfather clock. It cracked my head open and I’ve got a massive scar now, so it was pretty bad!
‘Amazing Friend’ - Lizzy Stewart / Litho Print
Lizzy Stewart’s Amazing Friend card (Currently Avaliable at Red Cap Cards) . It’s really cute and original – most cards just say Happy Birthday or something, no other card says that. I also really like her style, especially on the Greek Pot print as well.
‘Suram Fortress’ - Esther Williams / Screen Print
Esther Williams (part of Print Club). I hadn’t seen Esther’s work before but I really like it, all the little elements to it and how it is built up. The characters are good, and you get the notion, like with my work, of a scene or a story being told. I like how the guards are protecting the pomegranate, and the other guy is worshipping it. I also really like pomegranates…
