Thanks. Congrats to the painter.

Initially the painter asked what piece did i want re_painted? ..and what areas did i want re_painted?
I said, the eyes, skin tone, hair, and sent him and image of the official Species artwork (see: below)
which he was aware of. Obviously he was never going to be able to turn the Hollywood Collectibles
Sil into how Sil appears in the poster, as that would be asking too much

I did suggest adding dark/black roots to the hair. He passed on that.
Maybe the sculpt does not lend it's self well to roots, as the hair sculpt lacks definition.

I ran out of ideas for the moment with regards to the display backing.
I had considered mirrors, but that would cost more than i want to spend at the moment.

A new Banksy artwork has appeared at Southampton General Hospital.

The largely monochrome painting, which is one square metre, was hung in collaboration with the hospital's managers in a foyer near the emergency department.

It shows a young boy kneeling by a wastepaper basket dressed in dungarees and a T-shirt.

He has discarded his Spiderman and Batman model figures in favour of a new favourite action hero - an NHS nurse.

The nurse's arm is outstretched and pointing forward in the fashion of Superman on a mission.

She is wearing a facemask, a nurse's cape, and an apron with the Red Cross emblem (the only element of colour in the picture).

The artist left a note for hospital workers, which read: "Thanks for all you're doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its only black and white."

The painting will remain at Southampton General Hospital until the autumn when it will be auctioned to raise money for the NHS.

Paula Head, CEO of the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust said: "Our hospital family has been directly impacted with the tragic loss of much loved and respected members of staff and friends.


Thought i would share this story that appeared today
