“When I first heard of this project, I thought,I have got to be involved and support it in some way. I wanted to design something that reflected both the fireworks in the film, and the mental fireworks going on in the head of the main character. I tried to give it the feeling of a retro firework box. I also wanted to express visually the idea of the chemical power within the actual capsule, which is going to be released explosively, in a very unexpected way.”
If you contribute £500 or more you can get snap up one of the limited edition Fireworks prints. Your limited edition artwork will be signed by the artist himself, and posted out to you in December. We will do our very best to get your print to you in time for Christmas. Let us know if you need it by a particular date.
