Artist's Description

using my father Eric Austens design, which I watched him do hundreds of times.. x I can do them in black on white , or reverse,, in almost any style x. the bags are the least expensive and the t-shirts,, all very good materials .. xInfluenced by my father Eric Austen,,IN 1958, the black and white …

Someone asked me if I had ever put the CND sign in one of my designs//I have once,,

but I have a very different attitude to it than I think a lot of peope would expect,

My father was a real Purist,,

he loved simplicity, and black and white,

,. when the whole Peace movement developed,,

many years later, he absolutely winced at what was done to the sign

,, the embellishments of all kinds..

so I think I have copied him, we were extremely close,,

and I worshipped him..

he taught me to draw and paint ,, from when I was three,, and we used to sit together when he was making his pottery and talk about what he would do next.. and different designs etc. I have always felt the simplicity of the design is very beautiful,,, and enough in itself.. I’m glad the Peace movement have embraced the sign, and that people have made it their own.. the extraordinary popularity of the design is due to something I believe is quite sacred … Gea Austen.
