By popular demand I've got some prints of my Hacienda dancefloor drawing for sale.
This is a digital painting I originally did as part of the cover for the reprint edition of the Freaky Dancing fanzine I've been putting together with my friend Fish Kid. For those who don't know, Freaky Dancing was a fanzine Fish Kid and I produced (with the help of lots of our friends) as a kind of unofficial Hacienda night club / acid house fanzine, in 1989 and 1990.
We used to draw the comic pages of the fanzine in the week, then print copies on the work photocopier after work on Friday evening (my offices was next door to the Hacienda!), then we'd walk to the club and give the fanzines out to people in the queue waiting for the doors to open. We'd then join the back of the queue and wait for another Best Night Ever™ to kick off.
We've been working on a reprint edition of the whole run of the fanzine, and I needed an image of the inside of the Hacienda for the background of the cover. I decided I might as well just draw one myself. It came out much better than I hoped for, and when I posted it on the Hacienda Friends Facebook group there was a flood of requests for prints, so I decided to get some done.
