These are supposed to resemble notebook covers. The text is all filched from my notebooks, appointments, colour specs etc. I loved Basquiat’s early Warhol collaborations. But what did Andy think when he saw a nice logo he’d drawn covered in hip street language? “Er, very nice…you’ve actually drawn over everything… But. That’s. Fine.” They look nice as T-shirts as well. What’s the point of wearing a T-shirt everybody understands?
Bysshe Bash is a celebration of a Blacktooth Productions event in Hornsey, written and organised by Chris Howe, Mick Kidd and Nigel Pike. This production celebrated the people who haunted Fitzrovia, and this drawing is a mutation of Shelley. As you can see you can buy him on a T-shirt from my shop on Zazzle.
