My mum was nagging me for ages to paint something on the wall in my little bro's room (he's 9). We had no idea what to put on it, but we wanted to keep in touch with the colour scheme of blue, red and yellow. So when i was in TKK MAXX, i got this cool offical DC batman logo t-shirt, and with the label was this awesome pop-art-ish "pow!" logo, and it was in the exact colours we needed. So i got some small sample pots of wall paint in Homebase, and some black paint (for outlining) that i think was for railings.. but what the hey. I didn't do the outlining for about 2months after, because my dad kept forgetting to get the paint.

But heres the result.. very pleased with it if i may so myself. My mum's at me now to do something else alongside it.  My brother wants something from the Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack and Sally. On the hill (like you can see on his poster, that me, the  coolest sis ever got for him 2 weeks ago when i was in England Tongue)



And you can see how it ties in with the curtains (tacky ones at that in my opinion, my mum got them).. and the lovely organisation of the posters.. i tidied them up for him last week. And i stuck those glow on the dark things on the wall, and in the bare space.


I love Pop art, and the comic book pictures.. hopefully when im all grown up with kids i'll have comic cook hero room for my little boy, or maybe the girl might get into it when she's older Wink
