Lost Summer Of 1988
Souvenir Art Trail
This piece was made and photographed for the
Souvenir Art Trail in Dublin.
I chose to make my print based on a souvenir from my childhood. My long lost He-Man & Battlecat toy. I lost
my favourite childhood toy in a mini flash flood during the summer rain of 1988.
I wanted to make the woodcut look as real as possible to emphasise the the shocking reality of this nostalgic tagedy.
