As you may already know, Raw Art has spent the past two weeks pouring resin over the EU protest biscuits, including the rock n roll biscuit, to see if we could finally mummify the artworks, or whether the whole process would destroy them. In addition, the rock n roll biscuit is about two years old - and shows no signs of disintegration - so maybe this is due to industrial amounts of preservative. Or the fact that it is a magical biscuit which defies nature.
Probably the latter.
Now a few more are ready – cast in resin – to flee the so-called nest and go out into the wider world. But watch out, this is slightly involved. I was not certain there were pictures of all of the biscuits, so as a result there are now too many - but this is just to show as many as possible.
There is a list below. Please, if you buy a biscuit, request which one. This is very important. I can paint and cast another edition for you if one has sold out, if you are happy with that, or do choose another. You can use the contact page as the paypal notes thing I tried to do doesn't seem to work. I am keeping the original Rock N Roll biscuit.
Update - some of the originals have sold so please check list below or you can request a copy of a particular slogan/design

I have deliberated over the price and they are £25 each including P&P. It may sound like a lot, but it isn't. They all took hours to paint, to dry, then to put in the resin (which costs loads). I didn't want to make them too expensive, as that's not the point. Yes. Or rather no.
I will be paintin' n dunkin' some new biscuits in the next few weeks. Some are on show at the Wakefield Arthouse at the moment but can be bought.
I have also found out, when prompted by the loyal Raw Art customer base, that the biscuits use sustainable palm oil.

UPDATE – 6th October 2016 – RIP Rod Temperton whose death was announced 5 October 2016.
In addition to Thriller, British songwriter Temperton wrote tons of hits. Actual worldwide hits. Off The Wall and Rock With You, Boogie Nights and masses more. There's a good Spotify playlist here (compiled by Pete Paphides) which includes a handful of his bloody amazing disco greats. Makes me want to go out on a Saturday – velvet shoes, lycra leggings, vodka milkshake – and get on the dancefloor.
"'Cause we're the party people night and day
Livin' crazy that's the only way."
Anyway, that's another song. Here's the Thriller song structure print...
28 September 2016. This is the unofficial Week One of the Raw Art Christmas.
Sian Superman 15:18Hello. Time was, about two months ago, Raw Art had a shop as part of Grrrr! We miss that bloody shop, we do. We miss the people strolling in, having a chat, almost buying a "Failure" pencil and then not. We miss being surrounded by the art. We miss our lovely artists, the light of NW5 as day faded into night, stopping by the Gipsy Queen on the way home for a quick pint.... Raw Art misses having a shop. WE REALLY MISS THE SHOP. Just thought I'd put it out there. WE MISS IT.
Anyway, onto matters more urgent and pressing. And first person. I've been looking at the postcard-sized Low for a few months now, it's sitting in the Raw Art Towers kitchen. And it socked me in the jaw - why the hell is not square? And slightly bigger? I've not done that much David art since January – you may be aware there was a lot more of it before. Felt too trite, too icky, too maudlin. But, listening to the albums over the months I still come back to Low. One of my favourites. Perhaps the favourite? I don't know. Bit bleaky-bleak-bleak at points but it's 2016 – man – so it fits.
I've made a new Low painting for this season, and it's 20 x 20 cm now, and I hope that it makes sense.
If you would like one of these they are painted as multiples and limited to twenty. Only £60 including the P&P. Acrylics on canvas board. Expect some biscuits on a similar theme in the next few weeks. Maybe.
If you would like a Low mug we still have a few left.
