Tribute to Dead Bod

It seems I have become fixated on Hull’s maritime heritage of late. So why stop now? Following a suggestion by Chris Gray I decided to paint Dead Bod. Dead Bod was spray painted onto a wall on a Hull dockside in the early sixties. It became something of a landmark for fishing crews. Lately it has become emblematic of Hull and the struggle between preservation and demolition, people power versus red tape and bulldozers. Here is my tribute to this quirky piece of graffiti. The original is available for sale at my own website at
