I can't really remember where i first saw this gem, t'was on google i suppose wile searching a whole lot different things.
Skipped school late 80's early 90's? Well this reminds me of our school skipping days, early morning cappuccino at Brown Derby (the ONLY true cappuccino in Greece at that time) and later on, Bimbi Morti (dead kids) pizza... with real mozzarella (again... Greece at late 80's!!!) and heavy on the mushrooms.
I hafta make a functional stencil out of this... just in case... you never really know when you're gonna feel naughty... }; ) enjoy.
The work in progress sign, on the other hand, doesn't need no stencil, just a big fat marker should do the trick just fine. Play Safe.
P.S.: On 10.Aug.09 i found this link of SWEZA and OF COURSE its much older than mine, plus, it got used in an against the war campaign, so be sure to check it out.
Unfortunatelly the grayscale got printed instead of the colored one }: ( Read all about it here Below you can see part of the arabesques i made for Ahmedinejads vest, and of course the yahoo RSS box wich i realy trully adore!!!
The big one got printed and -as usual- you can read all about it... here...
As you can se it's in part replica of the elementary greek school book (right-below). When Alex Grigoropoulos got shot, and hell broke loose, I made the Karamanlis illustration that didn't make it, so i changed this one... wich unfortunatelly didn't make it to the press either. Unfortunatelly i said??? Correction!!! THANK GOD it didn't make it... if you look closer you'll notice i have the heart bleeding on the wrong side...
Now about the elementary book, if you are interested you can find a whole lot of reprints, why? because it's copyright can be bought for pennies (4drachmas for each copy if i recall correctly) and each book depending the edition costs about 15 euros. }; ) smart business eh?
The big one got printed, black underground for more strenght on the already black & white newspaper paper. I'm sooooooooo glad i didn't got lazy and made another head, in comparison the red one seems soooo poor. As always you can read everything about it... here
P.S.: I am so totally and helplessly hooked on how it shows on my Yahoo Gadgets....
I kinda like much more the vertical version, but it would loose the hand-position effect of "Then and Now". One thoght was also to keep a different color on the hands to help point them out, but on the yellow Castros (above) different color would mean a cool color instead, and it just didn't work as good as on the cyan (cool) portraits - yellow (warm) hands.
05 AUG 2009 I finally cleared my mind about what should be done with "captain's logs 1 and supplementary", im gonna fetch -one illustration at the time, with comments and links and dates and stuff- all the previously printed work and paraphernalia }: )
05 APR 2009 Illustration on an article of Takis Kampylis for Kathimerini on Antisemitism and rule of the Greek courts on the subject. The big one on the left got chosen, on the vertical one you can clearly see Plevris in the uniform of EON youth.
