'The jukebox has to take a leak and the carpet needs a haircut'

There's only one week left to get to the exhibition 'A Study of Sports and Leisure' at the Exposure Gallery - featuring three of my original illustrations - more info here.  Typically I went down a slightly trashier route for my subject matter by taking two creatures of Greek mythology and giving them a bit of a contemporary makeover.  This is 'The jukebox has to take a leak and the carpet needs a haircut'; the titles for the illustrations came after I'd finished all three.  When in doubt Tom Waits.

The originals are for sale and there are limited edition giclee prints too.  They'll be available in my shop after the show finishes.

There's some really great illustration in the exhibition from the likes of Sarah Ray, Karin Söderquist, Åsa Wikman, Mr Millerchip and lots more besides.  GO!
