No christmas update from me would be complete without dragging this old thing out of the vault. It was the first billboard I ever designed and the first and last time I ever asked for permission. My first attempt at installing it was cancelled when The Sun found out and called the billboard company, but they ran a story about the work anyway (see right). Good job they stopped me getting my evil message out there by printing it full colour in the newspaper.
I have xmas cards of this image as part of a collection of Santa-related greetings cards. They’re available individually or as a pack of 12 cards.
I had these genuine (and genuinely insane) Blair xmas cards printed up as a backer reward for the Museum of Neoliberalism crowdfunder back in 2019 and they ended up being the most chosen backer reward, covering over half of the total we needed. There’s something very satisifying about funding a museum of neoliberalism by pirating Tony Blair’s intellectual property.
After we reached the funding goal (about £2k) I added an, admittedly sarcastic, stretch goal that if we raised an extra £250,000 we could afford to get Tony to do a speech at the opening. So I sent an email to the Tony Blair Institue for Global Change to enquire about his availability. Unfortunately he wasnt free that evening, but his assistant did send me a lovely boilerplate response which included the line “I hope the opening is a great success” which immediately went on the poster.
Anyway if for some reason you’d like to send some of these cards to your friends or enemies, they’re available in my shop.
The Jigsaw Jigsaws I made last year are still in my shop and still frustrating and annoying and possibly maybe even delighting someone out there. You can order one here.
FINE ART PRINTS
I have a selection of limited edition, signed prints of my work available. They’re usually £30 for A4, £50 for A3, or £80 for A2, with some prints available in A5 or A1 size. I’m going to have to increase my prices slightly in the new year so now is a good time to grab.
I also have this quite large Hell™ print, (edition of 120) that shows business people being sent to hell where they industrialise the torture process and start running the place for profit.
These are £100 each.
