a customer contacted me a while ago to ask if i'd design a piece based on the poem 'i wanna be yours' by john cooper clarke. it was a fun commission to do, here's the final piece.
"it's come to my attention that it's the wedding favourite. the number of people that have said, 'i had that read at my wedding', or 'my husband proposed to me using that number'… it's been very useful in the world of modern romance! it is to modern wedding ceremonies what 'always look on the bright side of life' by eric idle is to humanist funerals. i probably go to a great many more funerals than you do, so take it from me."
