Another green scrapbook.
(For the young people out there, a scrapbook is a kind of pre-internet, analogue way of bookmarking web pages, only heavier and, as it turns out, longer lasting.)
This one is full of photographic reference.
It’s from about 1993/4, when Satoshi Saikusa, Raymond Meier and Rolling Stone Magazine were all the rage.
At least they were in my world.
There’s a couple of images in there I’d forgotten all about.
They are screaming tortured heads.
Almost like Francis Bacon, only greener.
I wish I could read the signature to give the guy credit, they still look extrordinary.
All I can remember is that a guy from The London College of Printing came to see me with a book of amazing images like the four below.
I tried to helping by designing a poster for him as a mailer, it showed all these amazing howling, tortured heads with a line underneath that said ‘Also available for weddings, graduations and bar mitzvahs.’
The plan was to get someone at The L.C.P. to print it for free, but unfortunately we couldn’t make it happen.
It’s a real shame, I love his images and would loved to have helped.
If anyone recognises the images and knows his name, let me know and I’ll credit and tag the images.
