A while ago I posted on this blog a pattern I had created of geometric rooftops inspired by my time in Berlin. I had wanted to cut them up and rearrange the shapes, so I have used the opportunity of the Poundshop project to create a pattern doing so. The possibilities of compositions that could be created using these elements was in my mind as I was making it and it was quite overwhelming to make decisions, but afterall..I thought just make something and have fun, so here we are. I am about to deliver it to the poundshop now, I have made 50 papers and a fair few lions. I realised today it was a whole year since I saw the wild lion that I have made the print about, he sent shivers down my spine, I will never forget the feeling of driving for hours looking for lions and then spotting one so close and so suddenly. Although my drawing will never ever capture truly the magnificence of the animal, I hope it at least signifies some of
that moment to you. Or as garth would say I just hope you don't think it sucks.
I'm beginning to get rooftop eyes, next I'm thinking of swimming pools, fires and chases.

A very stately lion, I think. One you would want to have around. Love looking at all your work. It's very inspiring.

I like it soo much, I went to the store today but it was sold out.
Let me know if I can purchase one from you, in case you can send it to Portugal, where I'm coming back tomorrow.

Great work! Lovely poster..
