JACOB & THE COLOURED COAT. Luv Me. The original artwork by Michael English and Nigel Waymouth made for the poster commissioned by John Gilbert for his pop promo company Luv-Me Film Productions, c. early 1967.

Line drawing on card with white gouache. 50.8x38.4cm.


Accompanied by Michael English's printed note in which he explains how the poster was "silk screen printed from two same size artworks. The first would have been a pencil outline on layout paper for the hand cut gold screen [not present]. The second was black artwork on white card for the black photo-stencil screen. The medium was gouache, Pentel pen, and Rapidograph ink. Nigel Waymouth and myself worked together alternately weaving our personal styles in and out of the image to form a tapestry of visions. This original is extremely rare as, incredibly, almost all the originals were left at the printers and subsequently destroyed. At the time no one, including ourselves gave them a second thought after the printing. The result is that about twenty masterpieces of poster art have been lost forever."


Near Fine, with a few stray gold printer's ink marks to verso. Provenance: Felix Dennis Estate.


The original artwork for the Hapshash poster 'Save Earth Now' is in the V&A Museum, and the artwork for two more Hapshash posters were sold at auction a few years ago; other than these, no other examples of original artwork for psychedelic posters by Michael English and Nigel Waymouth can be found.
