Julian Beever’s work is pretty amazing. According to this site, his drawings are sometimes halted by council busybodies so perhaps Conrad’s story isn’t so far fetched. To be honest, though, I suppose their objection is because of defacement rather than ‘encouraging false bravado’.

  1. Beever`s artworks are absolutely incredible – there`s no other word for it. His grasp of perspective is mindblowing.

    Incidentally, we have just had our local “free” newspaper delivered, and I see that Ipswich`s recent 3-0 drubbing came at the hands of SOUTHAMPTON of all teams!! Now that really IS humiliation!!!

  2. PS I have now run out of jamjars (for the “repurposing” of). Can anyone send me a further supply please – I think I`m becoming addicted.

  4. This artwork would really confuse my mum. Years ago she made us all traipse up a path in the local park to admire their new garden gnome & it turned out to be an old tap covered in plastic lagging…
