This painting was based on a collage wholly clipped from comics. I had grown up with the Beano, the Dandy, the Topper and the Beezer and loved the colour range particularly when the newsprint had begun to yellow and the ink to fade. I was keen to learn the visual language of the comic artist and a change to water-based acrylic helped this move.
