On his design:
"Whilst trawling through images of pinball tables in research for this print, I was struck by how fun, how vibrant the early playfield graphics were. The early Gottlieb tables in-particular like Triple Action and Jack & Jill feature bold imagery in beautiful 1950's palettes, with line and shape pulling your eye around the field. It's these 1940's and 1950's Gottlieb's that I drew my visual inspiration from, whilst wanting to also commemorate the introduction of the revolutionary 'flipper'. Pinball would never be the same again, and we had yet another thing to blame for our own lack of hand-eye coordination."
18" x 24" 5-color print on archival, acid-free paper.
