Sign on the fence. I'd call it irony my self.

Sign on the fence. I’d call it irony my self.

In the cold war, British and American armed forces built a spy base on the top of the Devil’s Mountain in Berlin. The mountain its self was made of rubble from the city’s bombing in world war 2. This “man made mountain” became the highest point in West Berlin, allowing radio intercepts to be made for hundreds of miles by the Brits and the Americans. (more…)

Been asked by the guys at ferric to give some feedback on which one of these two designs should be done on a canvas.

Well, which one?

This is something my wife soon came to learn, and then mimic, very early in our relationship.

It used to be the case that I’d buy cards and then forget where I put them.

Now I just refuse the whole buy it, loose it, find it at Easter charade, and, instead mumble something about the commercial exploitation of Christmas (weddings, birthdays, bar mitzvahs and any other opportunity which lends its self to card buying), before saying fuck it and not bothering in the first place.

Anyway, for my daughter’s 21st Birthday I thought I’d do something a bit different, so, working with my long term friend and collaborator known only as “Agent K” (or, at 2 am in the morning with a spray can in one hand and a can of special brew in th’other, “Special Agent K”), we came up with the following 12ft by 6ft greeting card design.

Looking at it a few days later, I reckon the paste I’ve used should last till Christmas when it can be easily modfied with a few christmassy colours and other seasonal nonsense.
