3 colour screenprint with custom pens and chrome krink handfinishing. I bought a shoe whitener and it was absolutely rubbish so I cleaned out all of the shoe goo and I put pink ink in there instead and it made a really cool mop for hand finishing. Then I finished it with krink chrome Ink.

Grace Patricia Kelly (November 12, 1929 – September 14, 1982) was an American actress who, after starring in several significant films in the early to mid-1950s, became Princess of Monaco by marrying Prince Rainier III in April 1956.

Pure Evil explains that a chance email from a Chinese “copy village” gave impetus to his “Nightmare Series.” The village offered, via email, a list of artists it could reproduce, including three small jpeg images of Andy Warhol paintings. Warhol’s entire artistic output has been distilled right down to three small 64 x64 pixel thumbnails of Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor and an Electric Chair and this became the inspiration for a series of 'Nightmares' : doomed and dripping celebrity portraits. Why are they crying ? “Its an illustration of the heartbreak and sadness we have all experienced in relationships in the past.”
