Michael Caine



I’m a big fan of Len Deighton and I love the 60s Harry Palmer films. Michael Caine was the ultimate in understated cool in the role and a great icon for the times. The Ipcress File is supposedly the best but I think Funeral in Berlin beats it hands down.

I like this very much. How did you do this one?

Thanks Sal. It's another vector piece which starts with a sketch usually (and in this case) based on photographs. I then use Photoshop to create each part of the image and then manipulate accordingly.

I liked Ipcress file too, but preferred Billion Dollar Brain.
That's a quality pic BTW, loved that. would make a great wall mural.

Hiya Chewie

You mean like a Harry Palmer Banksy? Ha ha I see what you mean.

How are you mate? I thought Billion Dollar Brain was good until he went to Texas and it just turned into a sub-standard Bond movie. Did you know the gorgeous blonde girl was Catherine Deneuve's sister?

I'm not a big film fan but I think this image is fantastic. So clever. Thanks for posting.

Thanks mannanan, do you know The Sayle Gallery? I was thinking of seeing if they wanted to show some of my stuff like this (the cranes are modelled from ones in Douglas by the way).

Hiya Gary. Think your images would look great in the Sayle gallery which as you know is moving into the new Villa marina arcade within the next few weeks.I know the co-ordinater very well indeed so if you want her number just email me on cornaa@gmail.com....

Been looking at all your other stuff and I'm in AWE. Just fantastic. What talent.
