“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

Jack The Ripper


I know that in most Jack The Ripper paintings Jack is portrayed as a doctor type with a top hat and an expensive suit. However, one of my best friends, Dr. David O’Halloran, always put on his old togs whenever he set out to mutilate a few prostitutes so that was the look I initially went for here. Unfortunately that version got turned down flatter than Keira Knightly’s chest by The Dark Side magazine.
It’s probably for the best. After all, getting sliced up by a serial killer who shops at Primark is adding insult to injury!
