The Tote Hotel - Special Artwork to Support PBS 106.7 FM
The world famous Tote Hotel, Collingwood, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Home of rock and roll, beacon of hope, light in the darkness, ruiner of the morning after! Once a week they repaint the blackboard of the band list outside, and I drew this in between phase with ink, pen and brush on on lovely A3 watercolour paper.
This is a print of one of the 13 original works of art I exhibited at Off The Kerb gallery in Collingwood, Melbourne, in March 2018. The show was a near-sell out and I have just a few prints left and only one or two originals.
See all the works from the show, and find out which originals are still available here:
You will be buying an unframed A3 fine art print (unframed).
The print you will soon excitingly own is from a limited edition series of 40, each hand numbered and signed.
The prints are art museum quality giclée prints on uncoated, acid and lignin free archival paper. Treat it as per the instructions I'll ship with it, and this print will last you a lifetime.
This drawing was originally made to support PBS' 2017 Radio Festival. It was pretty popular, so I decided to do an exhibition of more like it, and call it 'Nice Day To Go To The Pub' after a song by the cult / iconic Aussie punk band Cosmic Psychos, who often (dis)grace the stage at this venue: The Tote.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this specific print will be donated to PBS 106.7FM. PBS is an independent community radio station in Melbourne, Australia, and streaming globally online. I love PBS, and I love the live and local music they support. So I've set up a special print run of a local live music landmark (THE TOTE!) to generate some cashola for the PBS coffers. I would go insane in the studio without PBS to listen to, no kidding, so get on board!
