Dennis the Menace and Gnasher Hug Limited Screen Print by John Patrick Reynolds
Hand made limited edition Screen print on mould made, cotton paper – Mounted with a plain black wooden frame and ready to hang.
Signed and numbered out of 200 in pencil by the printer, John Patrick Reynolds
This iconic screen print of Dennis the Menace, the star of The Beano comic, first appeared in 1951. He has since become a kind of national mascot
One glimpse of his red-and-white jersey – actually a football top – or his unruly hair immediately brings the lovable scamp to mind.
In the early 1960s, he was joined by his Abyssinian wire-haired tripe hound, Gnasher. Gnasher seems to be made of the same kind of thing as Dennis the Menace’s hair – the untamed explosion of black hair symbolic of the chaos they embody.
