I wanted to produce a piece of work to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the British Punk Movement...which began with the release of 'New Rose' in Oct 1976 by The Dammed.
I love punk, it's raw energy, the attitude, the style, the music. Early punks were so creative...customising what they had into something bursting with punk flair. I wanted him to have a bit of 'an attitude' about him.
Of course, punk evolved through the decades, it softened and became slightly more chic along the way...leading to other movements...new romantic, goth, grunge, emo.
But I like punk circa 1976, it was so fresh.
