It's done! Now on show at the Eagle Gallery Bedford, and written up on the web site.
I'm beavering away on a painting of a scaled up book. Fascinated by the large sticker like graphic proclaiming "The next Stieg Larsson" on the Jo Nesbo thrillers. I was fascinated with this notion of selling a work by comparing the fiction to that of another. The suggestion is the cover is a promotional tool rather than part of the art. OK so not uncommon in publishing, I guess, but what if I put a sticker on the frame of one of my paintings claiming " The next Constable" - bit weird really. So this work aims to parody this graphic style with the "sticker" proclaiming "The next but one Stieg Larssonson"
