This brewing by-product turned toast topper has achieved cult status since 1905.  The company's "Love it or hate it" ad campaign is bang on the money recently being recognised as a snowclone. The tagline replaced "My Mate, Marmite" as I remember it from the 80s. The growing up spread you never grow out of. Those who love it don't just want to eat it - Eat Marmite? They want to bathe in it, wallow like a hippo in mud in it.

PROCDUCT INFORMATION

Fine Art reproductions are made by taking 4-6 photographs of my originals and stitching them together. This way there’s more information to create a crisp print at the same size as the original painting. Then they’re printed and colour matched, a process called proofing which can take several frustrating hours before the first usable copies finally roll out ‘hot off the press’ using lightfast inks on archival 310g Hahnemühle paper, which is not actually paper, it’s ripped up cotton rags. Hahnemühle is the brand of paper - an excellent paper mill that started in 1584 Germany.

AN INTERESTING FACT: During the Second World War, the company created paper for the SS-Reichssicherheitshauptamt's efforts to produce counterfeit British banknotes as part of Operation Bernhard.

Each Limited Edition print is embossed, hand signed and numbered by me the artist. Remember paper prints that are framed will see it's lifetime double that of one left in it's tube under your bed.
