Oor Wullie is aghast
£ 145.00–£ 195.00
Oor Wullie is aghast – this is one of a new format screenprint, tall and thin,
They are intended to fit into slots – perhaps in corridors between doors – where wider pictures will not fit.
These screenprints cost £145 unframed and £195 framed.
These panels first appeared in The Sunday Post. They were originally drawn by legendary draughtsman Dudley D Watkins.
I especially enjoy using Watkins’s panels in my screenprints as they were drawn so well – he took great pains to give each panel a well balanced composition. And with just a few lines he was able to give a huge range of expressions to his characters.
The Broons and Oor Wullie are known to every Scot – wherever they may be. Many of my customers are Scots or the children or grandchildren of Scots who live outside Scotland. The Broons and Oor Wullie often seem to regarded as part of Scots’ extended families.
I love the stories for their invention and the language that the characters use – it’s full of Scottish turns of phrase which you don’t often see elsewhere.
I am the first and only screenprinter with permission to use the images of The Broons and Oor Wullie in my work.
Tall thin format: 76cms x 28cms
Handmade, limited edition screen print on mould-made, cotton paper.
