my grandad

I've done this screenprint of my Grandad before but here's a one off I messed about with, on wood, fun colour way with hand drawn ghostly birds of prey, it's meant to be what's coming out of his mind. My Gramps used to breed Canaries but he is rather fond of an Owl or two, I imagine he likes to think about them from time to time. I gave this to my good friend as a very late Christmas present, done a couple more with hand painted letters. Should do a set of these really as the old fella is 90 this year, guess i should do an edition of 90 but that's a lot of printing! 
-Happy birthday Charlie, you old cock sparrow!
