Grenades close-up

£ 40.00£ 74.00

Laconic yet dynamic. I love this panel because we’ve all felt like this from time to time – that the situation calls for a couple of grenades – whether we’ve stuck in traffic or being driven to distraction by a tea party for seven-year-olds.

This image is a detail of a panel taken from The Victor Book For Boys, 1968. I also offer the whole panel – as you can see from the extra picture, below left.

The screenprint is part of my close-up range, where I have selected a detail of a best-selling panel and bled it to the edges of the paper to emphasise the drama of the image.

The Victor comic was produced by Britain’s top comic publisher DC Thomson for more than 40 years – between 1961 and 1992. In its heyday, it sold hundreds of thousands of copies each week.

I am the the first and only screenprinter to have permission from DC Thomson to use their archive of images for my work.
