This is something I've been so excited to share with you for ages...
I'm SO proud and honoured to have collaborated with Golden Globe winning, Bafta & Oscar nominated actress SALLY HAWKINS (Paddington, Godzilla, Happy Go Lucky, Layer Cake, Blue Jasmine... this list goes on and on)!
My nuclear-symbol Godzilla design is inspired by the line she says; "...not [nuclear] tests..." as she plays Dr. Vivienne Graham in the movie. Sally has written 'Not tests...' and signed each one of the 50 prints, which were screenprinted by my friends at Whiteduck Screenprint in Bath, here in the South West.
All profits of the print are being donated to charity - we've chosen the Marine Conservation Society, who focus on the protection of the seas, shores and wildlife right here in the UK.
The collaboration all came about because of my lovely friend Finbar Hawkins, who as well as being a creative director at Aardman Digital, also happens to be Sally's brother! So when I had the pipedream of making the print happen and wondering if Sally would be up for some sort of charity collaboration - Finbar made it happen and connected us up!
I have to say a huge, huge, HUGE thanks to Sally for being so wonderful and being a part of this, despite being the busiest woman ever and a special big thanks to Finbar, for making this all possible! The Hawkins duo have been simply wonderful!
There's just 50 screenprints, and they're £50, with all profits going to the MCS. They go on-sale this Tuesday 30th June @ 7.00pm on my online store: jamfactory.bigcartel.com
