Modern-day Mr Men characters by Austin

Mrmen_new

Roger Hargreaves devised the Mr Men characters back in 1971, producing around 45 children's books featuring the characters before his death in the late 80s. But none quite like Mr Music and Mr Art by Austin.

A homage to the Mr Men series, new wave/street artist Austin has given the characters a modern-day spin, with the two above being part of a series of limited edition prints.

Each print is A2-sized and a six-colour silkscreen, produced in very limited runs of just 10, signed by the artist. You can pick one up for £80.
