Now then folks, this is a heads up about a website you ought to be checking out. Tolhurst Vinyl Art take old vinyl records and cut them by hand to make pretty stunning pieces of, well, art. I’m a sucker for quirky pop art, so this was right up my street. There were loads that I wanted, so many that I couldn’t choose, but the decision was made easier, as Mrs Wad told me she didn’t want vinyl silhouettes of Prince, Mark E Smith, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan or Gary Numan adding to the other stuff on the walls she now tells me she doesn’t like, so I couldn’t have any of them!
Fortunately, they do commissions, so I managed to find two that the missus would agree to. Not only did they make them for me, and at the same price as their other pieces, they’ve even added them to their online catalogue, so if anybody else fancies a Stephen Duffy or Sophie Ellis-Bextor one, you have me to thank! Take a look though, cos some of them are just fantastic. I wish I liked Tom Petty enough to want him on the wall, as that one is probably the best, although the Jim Morrison one is stunning too. I was holding off on mentioning it on here until mine arrived, just in case, but they came this morning and look even better than they do in the photos, so I can highly recommend them. For full disclosure, I’m not getting any commission for this!
