‘Bristol Shitty’. Work in progress. 12/07/17



I saw this red poster in ‘The People’s Republic of Stokes Croft’ in Bristol recently and it made me laugh out loud.  Bristol is a GREAT city and full of great scenes like this, so I felt a painting coming on.  I am painting a series of artworks involving street art and graffiti all around Bristol, but always with my trademark woman somewhere in the foreground.  I shall also be painting local iconic backgrounds such as the wonderful BearPit Bear.  I am excited.

In fact I got so excited, I went in search of fluorescent oil paints for the posters on the wall behind the woman.  These do not seem to exist in the UK,  so have spent all my worldly wealth on 5 tubes of brilliant colours from America which look amazing.  However  I will now have to tone down the colours, as the woman risks being swamped by such bright zinging tones.

I will only be painting in the detail of the Make Bristol Shit Again poster to create emphasis and will leave the other posters indistinct. I will eventually get the lettering right, so please bear with me.

The shoes are based on a fantastic pair of shoes I saw on one of my Twitter followers and I got his (!) permission to use them.  You know who you are…
