I was invited by Jenny Theolin
from Soapbox & Sons
to contribute a piece of artwork to the brilliant 'Beatbox & Sun'
art show in London, Summer 2013. The brief was to firstly be inspired by a sunny song lyric, secondly incorporate an aspect of communication (inspired by the fundraising cause) and finally to only use cyan, black and white. My chosen lyric was from one of my all-time most inspiring bands, The Beastie Boys...
The sun is beating down on my baseball hat
The air is gettin' hot the beer is getting flat
Lookin' for a girl I ran into a guy
His name is M.C.A., I said, "Howdy" he said, "Hi"
~ Paul Revere, The Beastie Boys 1986.
The show was put on by Soapbox & Sons in collaboration with Behind the Beats
and was in aid of The McGuire Programme
, a not-for-profit speech recovery programme run by people who have first-hand experience in stuttering.
