John C Thurbin will triumph

John C Thurbin will triumph

Six weeks or so ago, I ‘met’ a London-based artist on Twitter called John C Thurbin. We got chatting and I had a peep around his website. A few weeks later I saw he was running a comp for his sensational lino-cuts which you can see here. As you do, I got involved and was amazed when John announced I’d won!

I sent John my address and was expecting him to just send the lino-cut I’d asked after, so imagine my amazement/ surprise when 4 prints turned up! There was a note written on the bottom of the (FKOFing awesome) custom FatKidOnFire print above, the Brighton Rock lino-cut and two ‘John C Thurbin’ prints. A treasure trove of a haul!

During the creation of John C Thurbin Will Triumph II, John took over 1,000 photos (!!) and has created a wonderful stop-motion video to show the process. Peep it below.

Massive thanks to John for the wonderful art (that’s lined up to get framed as soon as I can afford it). Stay locked on FKOF for an in depth interview with John at some point soon, but for now peep JCT’s website, follow him on Twitter and catch his updates on Facebook.

Peace, love and respect.
