Lord Snooty introduces himself
Lord Snooty introduces himself. This is the first image of the character I’ve screenprinted. Lord Snooty is a great character, with lots of characteristics that you can identify as being uniquely his. He was one of my favourites – the original point to him being that he would play with the kids from the town around his ancestral castle, even though he was much richer than him. He was definitely one of the kids.
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.
