Liam Barrett: Printing Truth to Power

Liam Barrett thatcher1_827

I love the work of the Welsh illustrator and print maker Liam Barrett. Yes, there is the cute stuff, and kid stuff, and very clever 3-D, flat pak posters, but what I am really digging right now is his political stuff. Biting, tough and hard-hitting illustration about politicians, elections and issues. Oh, yeah, if you are living in the UK  don’t forget to vote you lazy bastards.

    These are really cool, would they have been made with a cut away stamp?

      I wish that I knew more about they were done. Ask @barrettLiam on the Twitter.

    Labour / SNP / Labour / SNP/ she loves me / she loves me not / etc.
    What to do? Which way to vote?
    What chance Labour with the spectre of a huge SNP vote?

      David, I wish that I knew more about the upcoming UK election to answer that question. I try to keep up, but it’s far more complicated than it is over here.
