Arguably the best cartoon character artist in Bristol is Sepr. Nobody else can tell the stories quite as well as he can in the simplest of ways. This is not only excellent art, but it is also a narrative that stimulates thought and curiosity about what is going on.
The piece was created as part of a birthday paint jam for fellow artist Mr Jago, who I know little about (to my shame). In this piece, a rather shady looking ‘Del Boy’ type is flogging ‘merchundoise’ (perhaps an oblique reference to Space Balls, the movie). What Sepr has done so well is bring focus and attention on the items for sale by bringing them to life with tons of ‘brush-stroke’ colour, contrasting so noticeably with the greyscale character and suitcase. A brilliant piece and one of my favourites from Sepr. Mr Jago is indeed honoured.
