Lunartik aka Matt Jones has always had a toe metaphorically dipped into the commercial world and in the last few years we've seen the breakthrough of his signature Lunartik in a Cup of Tea figure and last year he released the first series of these Art Pass under the brand Lunartik & Chums. Tha first series featured artworks from Pete Fowler, Ian Stevenson, Sichi, Phil Corbett, Triclops and of course Lunartik himself. Now tho its time for a glimpse of Series 2...
The new series features artworks from Lunartik, Felt Mistress, ATADesigns, Ronzo, Jonathan E, Nathan Jurevicius, Uamou and err some dude called SourBones (hehe.. that would be me for those of you who don't know). I've seen the finished designs of most of these and i know that my faves in the series are the Uamou and Nathan designs. Expect a full reveal soon as i hear that samples will be winging their way to the artists involved very VERY soon!
If you haven't already figured it out, the Art Pass is designed to carry your travel card (Oyster card) for when you require it. Tho if you really wanted to you could use it as a mini billfold wallet if you don't fancy walking around with a bulge in your trousers (ooo-err).
Pleasure to be involved in a fun project like this! Cheers Matt
