Paul Weller‘s band consisting of Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Andy Lewis, Steve Pilgrim, and Ben Gordelier have been touring together for some years and they are the best band in the world. I wanted to include them in, and give each member their own “Scratch My Vinyl” piece, to show them my appreciation of their great performances.
Paul Weller’s music is my biggest inspirational source. To create these portraits, I have used vinyl records previously damaged, and “drawing” the illustrations with a nail.
The project idea was to turn damage into a creative tool.
The surface of the microgroove has been further scratched to bring out the images from the black vinyl using the light tones.
