Just in time for the Queen's Jubilee and all the festivities for the Olympic Games 2012: Mengsel's brand new "Black Cabs" silkscreen print. Hand pulled in my studio with pitch black ink on crisp white 300g Snowdon paper.
I bought this little black cab toy car a while ago (from a very touristy shop on Oxford street!) to use as a prop in my photographs, but it was just so cute, I had to draw it. You can see my original drawing in my sketchbook below. I then used Photoshop to create a vibrant repeat pattern with my little black cabs and then headed to the studio to expose my screen and get my hands full of black ink. Luckily some of it ended up on paper and it looks rather nice if I may say so myself...
Ready to go up on the walls of all of you Londoners and Anglomanics out there.
You can buy a limited edition "Black Cabs" silkscreen print directly from the Mengsel Shop. Hope they get you into the spirit of this very special British Summer!
