Minnie the Minx says: “The trouble is …”

Minnie the Minx says: “The trouble is everybody knows I’m a Minx”. Minnie the Minx – that icon of girl power from The Beano – wrestles with self-knowledge. I love the stippled background.

This is selected, like many of my panels and images, from the 1960s and 1970s, and should make a great gift to anybody who is into retro, vintage, old school design. I tend to choose material from this era because it was the time I was growing up and my tastes and preferences were being formed. But also it’s a pre-digital age, and the drawings are all made by hand rather than computer aided. Obviously, as I’m a screenprinter, I’m biased in favour of the handmade, so this style is right up my street. I hope it is yours.

I am the only screenprinter allowed to plunder the fabulous comic art archives of top British comic publisher DC Thomson.

Handmade, limited edition screen print on cotton paper, mould-made at the St Cuthbert Mill in Wells, Somerset.
