You may know Simon Bartram because he created Bob, the Man on the Moon, but when we first met Simon back in 1996 he was producing very different work. One of his first commissions was for the Evening Standard who used to commission illustrations for their magazine cover, he was a perfect choice reflecting his generation of young men, interested in football and influenced by music. This led to a commission from the men’s clothing retailer Woodhouse, with a large instore panel and a series of six original paintings to adorn the walls of the Cafe Royal on Regent Street in London.

We though we might share these artworks with you, as we still really love them…
