Artist's description:

After deciding to use the lyrics of 'The revolution will not be televised' for a Gil Scott-Heron design I wanted to offer people another option using other lyrics. I'd originally thought it was too obvious but then came to my senses to realise what an amazing and iconic piece it is and that it'd be almost weird not to use it, so 'Revolution' was the first design. For the second i'd thought of using 'I think i'll call it morning', 'Pieces of a man', 'Hello Sunday, hello road', or 'Peace go with you brother', all favourites of mine but settled on 'Lady Day and John Coltrane', a joyful and uplifting song showing another side to the great man. ............................................................................................ This piece is partly painted and partly screen printed. I paint the background and sides, print the design and paint any detail of the design that goes round the sides. unlike my prints on paper that are printed in a run and numbered accordingly I dont number the woodboard pieces as i paint and print them one at a time, finishing off painting detail on the sides. so i dont see these as strictly prints but more like one-off pieces as they are hand-made even though i do several of them. This piece has a whole drilled in the back at the top so are ready to hang.
