Psych Icons - all together promo

Slacker Shack regular Dunstan Doodles has uploaded his new psychedelic music icons portraits onto his site. The twelve new pieces were recently exhibited in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and prints are already starting to sell well off the back of the show.

The portraits feature music icons from the golden age of psychedelia. Here’s the list in full – Grace Slick, Arthur Lee, Jimi Hendrix, Roky Erickson, Syd Barrett, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Mama Cass, Donovan, Steve Hillage and Jerry Garcia.

Dunstan’s style involves combining illustration and collage techniques and layering individual elements of the portrait onto mountboard piece by piece. He works on commissions and sells a number of prints of icons from the worlds of music, film, tv, literature and sport.

All giclee prints from his new Psych Icons collection come in A3 size, printed on top quality FS Platinum Etching paper. There’s also an option to get your print mounted and/or get it framed.

You can take a peek at all twelve icons here

‘Manchester Icons’ collected – a new print

Posted in Art, celebrity, Culture, Design, Film, manchester, Movies, Music, Pop Culture, TV with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2018 by dc

Between 2013 and 2017 I sporadically worked on fifteen portraits of cultural icons from the city of Manchester. Late 20th century men and women who’d made a real cultural impact on not only the city itself but the world at large.

With lots of help from friends and acquaintances (and lots of arguments later) I came up with the chosen fifteen icons. Stars from the worlds of music, film, TV and comedy. There were notable absentees like Morrissey, Ian McKellen and Liam Gallagher, but hey, you’ve got to stop somewhere, and fifteen sounded about right!

The final fifteen were as follows – Tony Wilson, John Cooper Clarke, Victoria Wood, Lemn Sissay, Mark E Smith, Shaun Ryder, Caroline Aherne, Danny Boyle, Ian Curtis, Johnny Marr, Maxine Peake, Les Dawson, Steve Coogan, Ian Brown and Noel Gallagher. You can view them all individually (and order prints) here.

Anyway, late last year, as some of the prints were getting snapped up as Christmas presents, I thought a nice way to conclude the project would be to collate all the icons in one print. Something for people who like my style and want to celebrate all the icons from across the series – so, here it is…

The art of Dave MacDowell

Earlier this evening Virginian artist, David MacDowell got in touch to reveal that he’s behind, Bad Mutha Wizard the Pulp Fiction meets Wizard of Oz print that Slacker Shack blogged about a while ago. He’s also the man behind the Jaws meets Big Lebowski print ‘Abide’ and The Big Lebowski meets Peanuts print ‘Charlie Lebowski’ (but to be fair, we knew that already).

I was chuffed Dave stopped by to say hello and he also provided a link to a site selling some of his prints – Dirty Pilot.

Over on his website Dave (rather delightfully) notes that his work has been described as, “a virtual Disneyland on acid” in some quarters. Check out some examples of his brilliant and eye-popping work below:
