Awhile ago Meggs had an exhibit in London that I went to see but I arrived as they were packing up. The website got the closing times wrong. I had a brief chat with the guys packing up the artwork and asked them how the show was. Later I found an interview online with Meggs and realised that the guy I spoke to was the man himself or at least I’m pretty sure it was. Doh!
I will often spend more time than necessary banging out possible names for illustration pieces instead of telling it how it is. TWIY has no such compunctions as clearly shown in the naming of this intricate skull piece titled ‘BIG FUCK OFF SKULL’.
This design was destined to become a large scale metallic gold ink print on black stock. Hopefully TWIY (London based artist Alex Chappell) will let us know if this happened. With any luck it did because this is one glorious skull.
I recommend checking out his other work on his Flickr account and reading the testimonials, especially the one by HICKS (54). Funny shit.
