I originally started 50 Baddies for a local exhibition, thinking that a modular print would be perfect for me – having a full time job meant I could fit one in here and there when I got the chance. Logic not being my strong point I didn’t really count on how long it would take to draw fifty of the buggers (months rather than weeks in the end!).
The last thing I wanted to do was more.
But then, you know, I started thinking about goodies and making a little list and before you know it here I am again. I’m kicking off with Robocop, which takes me right back – one of my first jobs was drawing cutscene graphics for the computer game version of Robocop 3 when I was about 17. To this day I’ve never seen the film. I read the script and that was bad enough.
The Ipcress File also has a special place in my heart. Harry Palmer gets the girl by good cooking and sardonic one liners, giving hope to puny four-eyes like me the world over.
It’s the same drill. 50 film goodies. 3 at a time. At the end I’ll make 50 prints and there’ll be 2 things in the shop.
As with the baddies, please feel free to suggest. Without a suggestion, Ma Fratelli would have never made it into the baddies last time, and she ended up being my favourite.
