Happy Cassidy

David Cassidy, who died on 12th April, 2017.

Made from a cutting from the Metro (23.11.17. Photograph: Getty Images) and a page from this book. The image is Reds And Yellows Of Harvest Time by Guiseppe Santomaso, 1957.

The crown came from an advert for the Tower Of London (scroll down to see), cut from Time Out London (31 Jan – 6 Feb, 2017). The photographer was uncredited. Royal Collections Trust.

The banana was cut from the Guardian (18.1.18). Photo: dutchscenery/ gettyimages/ istockphotoagency (take your pick!).

Hand-stitched using my nana’s thread.

15 x 21cms.

All of my work is numbered, this piece is 860.

It is a one-off. Never to be reproduced in print form, so please don’t do it. It goes against my grain. I do not add stuff to the world, but use what is already here.

Do not reproduce online without giving credit to the above sources. It’s just not right.

Available in my shop.
