Although I cannot be 100 per cent certain, I have a very strong feeling that this rather fun piece is by Big Hev. There are a few give aways that lead me to think she is the creator. Firstly it has been painted in the company of pieces painted by her friends, secondly there is a naive style of someone that doesn’t paint all that often, and thirdly the character’s mouth is very Big Hevesque.
If I am wrong, and I often am, then I am wrong. There is something highly amusing about a helicopter hat, and it reminds me of daft American humour often epitomised in Mad magazine and other media. It is a pity that Big Hev doesn’t get out more to paint, because despite its raw quality, it really works for me, and I think with more practice she could start producing some great work.
