JAMIE HEWLETT & ALAN MARTIN - "TOO MUCH FUN" - JAMIE HEWLETT ORIGINAL ARTWORK (1991)
A rare chance to purchase some original Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin artwork.
I only have a vague memory of this, but, as far as I know, this was an idea for one-off "fanzine" style publication (which would've been colour-photocopied), circa 1991.
The fanzine was never produced.
The artwork comprises of collaged background of images clipped from 1960s magazines, with the title spelled out in relief in some sort of "Scrabble" letters, in the centre is an ink drawing, coloured (most probably) with Pantone Markers. The drawing is of a bearded man's head wearing a crash helmet, very typical of Jamie's drawing style at the time. All assembled/glued on cartridge paper, taken from a ring-bound pad (sprocket holes still visible).
The artwork has been kept flat in a sketch book since the early 1990s, and is in good condition with bright, unfaded colours..
Includes an Action Alley COA/signed letter of provenance (I am Alan, I co-created the comic character Tank Girl with Jamie in 1988).
This artwork will come with the first (numbered 1/20) of a limited run of giclee prints of this artwork (other numbers available separately from this sale), an A5 cropped print (showing how the piece might have looked if it had reached publication), and a 2 inch badge/pin/button of the central "Too Much Fun" motif.
Image area is approximately 17.5cm x 25.5cm. The overall size of the piece is 23cm x 29.5cm.
