The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea
This is my entry for Mr Gresty’s exhibition of 16 artists at The Lauriston. Giclée prints available - contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
The brief: ‘Double-Vision for the thirsty & illiterate - Pub names are used to identify and differentiate each public house. Many public houses are centuries old and many of their early customers were unable to read, but could recognise pictorial signs. The target of ‘Double-Vision’ is to create a strong image that brings together two things that a thirsty and illiterate onlooker could identify.’
I wanted to create a pub sign in a more graphic style than usual, based on the phrase ‘Between the devil and the deep blue sea’, another iteration of ‘Between a rock and a hard place’.
