Paint Is... Battle Of The Eyes.

I'm a massive fan of Savage Pencil & Chris Long's "Battle Of The Eyes" art group.

Since the mid 80ies (when their NYAK NYAK comic was given away free with Jim Thirlwell's awesome Wiseblood "Motorslug"12") I've been obsessed with collecting their work. 

In recent years the duo have ressurected themselves as an expressionistic live art phenomenon and I've had the honour to watch and sketch them during several live painting events, paint a portrait of Savage Pencil and even had a cameo in one of their films, 'What We Do' by Mario Cavalli, (see below).

Be there or be square,
