With the initial spray paint stage largely complete I went to work filling in details
I used a stencil to achieve the nice clean lettering for his comic style “Grrrr!”
Before getting to this stage I wasn’t sure where the hand would appear so I drew a very thin outline before spraying the lighter tone of his hand

“Ralph” Original Art UK
This new piece was completed in March this year (2014) on a large board now available in Mr Pilgrim’s original art uk shop.
I’m really pleased with how this piece panned out as there were a few nervous moments where I questioned my judgement but in the end I’m very pleased with the result. In fact before posting online and in the shop I’ve already had a great reaction and massive encouragement from friends with also a few local dealers expressing an interest. It’s a pretty large piece that stand around 6 feet high and contains a vibrant energy that really has an impact when you see it in the flesh.
It is another move in a more comic book style direction that I am really enjoying at the moment. I don’t spend much if any time planning just a rough idea in my head of what I hope to convey, first I’ll spray in the colours (where I think they’ll be!) and then use graffiti markers to fill in the rest. So it is quite a risky venture every time I start but I guess as an artist you have to trust your judgement.
Actual dimensions measure a width of 24.25in and a height of 72.16in (width 61.6cm x height 183.3cm x depth 20mm approx). I’ve strengthened the backing with a wooden frame and is ready for hanging with dual fitted hooks.
