Never Mind John

Here's the sex pistols

Growing up in Birmingham The Sex Pistols played a very big role in my childhood. (Mainly thanks to my mum)) Our kitchen was full of Birmingham punk posters, flyers, inflatable bondage pigs (Don’t ask) little plastic aliens, and in big words painted across our fridge in glorious typographical letters it said – F**K YOU – YOU F***KING F**K.
Now I think back to what the gas man must of thought whenever he’d pop round to read the meter.
I really wanted to pay homage to such an iconic British punk rock legend. So here you have it.. A watercolour portrait of Sid Vicious from the Sex Pistols.
