SUNBANNED range of Sunglasses; for the discerning cheap charlie who has issues with suntans. Designed & constructed in Vietnam. Model provided by Saigoncrazee....

For an exhibition in Phuket Thailand, with the theme 'knock off/fake' I came up with this self portrait series.  The obvious spelling mistakes in the body copy of each ad is intentionally wrong.  A play on the Asian Chinglish phenomenon.  Where English is displayed on t-shirts etc all with good intention but most of the time is grammatically incorrect.  USually so bad it is actually a source of great amusement.
