Sian Superman 12:30
Hello. Here's some postcard art we did back in February at Raw Art Towers, of Lou Reed's Transformer cover. I am still upset that Lou Reed is actually dead. I thought he'd go on past 100.
I wanted to celebrate the really bloody amazing album Transformer by Mr L Reed. I mean, it's got Vicious on it - and Satellite of Love. And some other ones too. It's still Sounding Fresh. Fresh.
So this is a 13 x 18 cm piece of art on canvas board. It's painted pointedly in acrylics.
Here it is on a painty plinth.
I don't care if you buy one (much), I just wanted to put it "out there" again into the virtual stratosphere. It's Lou! Lou Reed. He invented everything, right. He freakin' ruled.

Hello young pups. Summer is drawing to a close and the long tendrils of autumn are tickling our collective nose. The nights are drawing in and what better, on one of those nights, than to sit with a limited edition art print of the sleeve for Record of the Year - Rock n Roll Animals by Luke Haines.
Taken from the original Sian Superman painting, inspired by 70s illustrators such as Alan Cracknell and Justin Todd, the print features the characters inside the record - Nick Lowe the badger, Gene Vincent the cat and Jimmy Pursey the fox. These creatures are also seen in Sian's animated RnR video here.
The image is printed on high-quality Hahnemühle German etching art paper and is A2 size - 59.4cm x 42 cm.

This is the only time this artwork will be made available and is limited to 50 copies. Each print will be numbered, signed by the artist and Mr Haines himself and sent in a postal tube.
THIS HAS NOW SOLD OUT
Sian Superman 18:12Well here we are, once more grasping the bosom of Rock n Roll artwork as if it were a big Christmas mummy.
Or even Halloween.
Today let us present the one and only Ms Patti Smith, seen here in Horses cover mode, originally photographed - as you well know - by Mr Robert Mapplethorpe in 1975.
Patti watches the viewer - does she? - yes, she gazes intently and looks a bit mannish. Here her body is elongated to the point of being a bit like a knitting needle.

Detail - hands and arms and torso stuff
This painting is 20x20cms, fully realised in acrylics on canvas board.
If you are the type of person who says, Hey, I'd like this artwork (and I think that you could be with the right sort of prescription medicine) then it will be yours for mere pounds including postage and packing and raw materials and cooked materials and that. Any questions, just ask.
Sian Superman 17:31Hello ladies and ladyhumans. Welcome to another painting thing. This time we herald the charming lothario Leonard Cohen, who sits, as on the cover of Death of a Ladies Man, with some gurls. He looks out at us - is this a death? Is this just a cigarette break? Who is he? Who am I? Who are they?
But I know who you are. You are a discerning gentleperson, who often lives off their wits. You are kind, vulnerable, strong and ugly - when you're not too busy being good-looking. You like Leonard Cohen and you like his stuff. His aura. His atmos. His je ne sais quoi.
Detail of Leonard, and texture of his open white shirt
If you would like to buy this little slice of heaven, this paparazzo-style NightClub Glimpse of the trouble that notoriety and cigarettes and that open white shirt brings - then it can be yours for £49 inc UK P&P. The canvas board (for it is that) measures 20x20cms and is daubed with acrylic paint. It is painted to order as a multiple of 20, and each piece varies slightly from the others.
When it is Christmas you can hang it on the tree.
