Digital art: Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls

Just some simple designs for a wider project encompassing many aspects of Wigan life. I’ll post all the stuff I’ve done in due course, but for now make do with perhaps the most famous of all Wigan brands (save maybe Pooles Pies), Uncle Joe’s.

I know nothing about art; as a rule, 'modern' graphic design does not appeal to me. I like to write in the first person because I do not want to be someone else.

Influences: public toilet cubicle drawings/slogans; WordArt posters in Market Street shop windows; Mega-Zine; bootleg vinyl artwork; Janne Suni; Pink Floyd; whoever is responsible for the Max Headroom hijacking incident; Collie, the Inept Reviewer.
