One of my very earliest paintings. This cunt of a friend of mine asked me to paint it. Then when I had done it, he didn’t want it. What the fuck is wrong with people? When people would ask for me to create something just for them I would always be reluctant to do so because what’s in it for me? Oh we’ll pay you. Yeah right. So many times have I been fucked over by people with no fucking ethics.

Dimensions: 51x61cm.
Painted: 1999.

The story behind Sea Slug

I painted this for a friend, who subsequently didn’t want it. It’s a very early painting and was rather easy to do; it required some imagination in terms of enlarging the hard-cropped source image.
