Girl Loves Boy
£ 40.00 – £ 70.00
New! Another screenprint in my recently introduced ‘words’ range: Girl Loves Boy. It is the brother to my other new screenprint: Boy Loves Girl.
They join my current Valentines ‘words’ range, which include ‘Kiss’ and ‘Love’.
By the way, a brief bit of research revealed to me that Valentines Day has been associated with lovers for longer than I’d thought: apparently the first surviving reference was made by Geoffrey Chaucer in the late 14th century. By the 18th century it had evolved into an occasion for lovers to give each other gifts such as sweets, cards and poems.
I’ve mined these letters by researching American comics from the 1950s.
I love the boldness – and of course screenprinting is the perfect medium to express those bold colours.
The screenprints are currently available in my standard format which is 26cms x 19cms.
