Out Now: Another Time, Another Place II - Limited Edition

Another Time, Another Place II (The Rolling Stones)
Another Time, Another Place II

I originally created the 'Another Time, Another Place' artwork featuring The Rolling Stones in the early '70s, which was published as a poster by the Big O poster company.

Earlier this year, I was contacted by Coda Publishing Ltd. to ask if the image could be licensed for use on a limited edition bronze vinyl The Rolling Stones - Another Time, Another Place - a collector's anthology featuring rare performances from the live broadcasts recorded in America during the Brian Jones era. One problem - the original artwork featured Ronnie Wood, not Brian Jones! So, I got to the drawing board and re-imagined the piece to incorporate the classic line-up featuring Jones.

This image of five medieval warriors in a fantasy forest landscape is indeed the Stones in another time and another place. The artwork, re-titled 'Another Time, Another Place II', is now available as a fine limited edition print, with a run of ONLY 54; a print to mark each year since the Stones first formed. This collector's piece can be purchased for 150 GBP at:
