L O V E P O W E R joins BOWIE METALLICA HENDRIX ZEPPELIN AC/DC BEATLES and STONES

November 25, 2013

Continuing our quest for Christmas presents …

First, thank you for a great response from AC/DC and METALLICA fans after last blog. Now you can relax. SORTED.

During the coming season of commercial hysteria and shopping meltdown –  endlessly repetitive TV advertising (tedious cartoons courtesy of John Lewis, SnotBall games from Iceland and perfume-ads called  Pariah Carey, Hairy Bikers, Fragrance Of Burnt Offal and Sweat Of Armadillo) is driving me mental. There are still weeks left to be bombarded/blackmailed/co-erced into joining in the race to the 25th December. All very little to do with …

Happy Birthday to Me

To counterbalance here are a couple of new Limited Editions expressing sentiments I hope are more appropriate to the occasion in question …

EDITIONS LAUNCH on Friday 29th November …

Here’s the AC/DC again and the two METALLICA editions Lars Ulrich – Metallica’s drummer called ‘AWESOME!

THE BEATLES, BOWIE of course (see MADONNA below) and two DEF LEPPARD editions. The first is taken from my original pencil sketch for ‘Hysteria‘, the second shows how I designed the 12″ singles from ‘Hysteria‘ to complete a giant (3′ x 3’) version of the album sleeve if you bought them all (the final single packaging contained the additional 3 needed to complete it.)

HENDRIX editions. The first one I created as a painting for THE HENDRIX SUITE at the Cumberland Hotel (Jimi’s official residence in the UK) when I was asked to design images in the newly-created suite celebrating 40 years since the guitarist died. The second image is taken from a collage of printed Japanese papers embellished with stitching and gold leaf.

The last Hendrix edition is of the mural I created for the suite … here’s how it looked

There are ZEPPELIN editions naturally. The first created from preparatory sketches I did for the LED ZEPPELINBBC Sessions‘ LP/MC/CD. The original of the second edition is a solvent transfer – a technique I love – created, well – purely because I love Jimmy Page. The bottom is one of the preparatory designs from which the wraparound cover of the fabulous LED ZEPPELINDVD‘ was finalised. ‘DVD’ was the first release of live footage of several complete concerts by the band. Watching it – it’s obvious to see why they were such a massive and innovative phenomena.

Finally, a mix of LITTLE RICHARD, MADONNA and THE STONES –Little Richard because I love him, the Madonna was created as a polaroid transfer for a major art piecee for a highly-acclaimed exhibition – ‘ICON‘ which I did with a friend and collaborator Sean Johnson-Kuczinski – as was the Bowie polaroid transfer above. ‘Skippy’ the rabid dog, a disturbing mascot for the ‘URBAN JUNGLE‘ tour in 1990, was recreated from a photocopy sketch
