graham's portrayal of himself at the time

Laughing haha like i said before they don't do anything for me.

i'd just say this if someone wants to buy some artwork there are plenty of artists in every town and city who are doing good work but struggling to make a living. if you buy from one of them you'll get better quality and value for money. That is not a criticism of graham's work because i like to see anyone being creative but I just don't think someone who has already made a fortune from fans needs it.

Like this? Laughing

i've always liked the "apprentice"....


I've often wondered who it is in the painting. Does anyone know?


Laughing In fairness the ape has an excuse.

No idea about who the apprentice painting is... Jonny Greenwood?

I cant afford original works by local artists, but I have a few prints by one of them, he's a good friend & I'm a big fan of his style. Hopefully in the new year I can get more prints from the latest exhibition. We have one small original of his that he made for Boann's birthday, need to get around to framing it!

I want them all Laughing Laughing

I agree, that makes perfect sense. I think it works slightly better as a cropped album cover than a full-length artwork, IMO.

I agree i think it is better cropped than the full length. Don't think Graham would see it that way. i think the artwork for 13 and happiness in magazines is the best work he has done.

30% off now. It's like the Dreams bed sale. Laughing

The green cover of Happiness In Mags is quite striking, it always catches my eye when I'm going through my CDs. What do the arrows mean?
